Scrap Management

Confessions Of A Fabric Addict

I LOVE my scraps!!  Well, I love everyone's scraps and so grateful when they share them with me.  Mixing mine with others makes for some wonderful projects, but they can get to the point of needing taming.

I look forward to SARAH sharing some STAR patterns with us heading into Hands2Help and not only will it help in taming scraps, but will make up a few lovely quilts to gift on to charity.



Remember I pulled my green drawer and had some assistance with selecting fabrics and projects.  Here comes my love for making blocks!




I now have all my full and partial paw blocks for the new Black Bear quilt.


The beginnings of Meadow's Mountains - large and small geese and I am getting some bonus HSTs from those large geese cut-offs.


 I took my Mom into town for some errand running in the Morning - we got back as the ice storm was just starting.  So I used the icy day to continue playing with my geese - paired the little ones.


And still played by putting the blocks together.  These will get sewn tomorrow with the forcast of snow - stitching weather for sure.  There are borders yet to go - yes, you heard right - BORDERS which I just love to do - NOT.


Some mix of green with my ever abundant browns for Jacob's Ladder blocks.  I have half of what I need for the top and the other pieces are cut and laid out by the machine to use as leader/enders - or maybe I will go full guns with them - who knows.

So a good start to taming the scraps.  I'm hoping the storm clears because I am escaping this weekend.

  9. Love the look of Meadows Mtns. I also wonder if it is a pattern or something you conjured up. It's delightful. We're expecting high winds today but just snow showers except for Wyoming County which might get a foot from lake effect off Lake Erie. Will work on En Provence today.

  15. Those geese, what a wonderful way you have put them together. Snow, what a perfect time to be inside sewing.No snow here but a very chilly 4.6 Celsius start for our mid-summer day.

  16. Great Bear Paw blocks. I am really loving those Meadow's Mountains blocks though! Glad you got your errands done in time before the ice storm hit.

  17. Meadow's Mountains looks like lots of fun! I have a huge pile of scraps on my cutting table that needs taming before I start anything else, but I also have a retreat to pack for so it will have to wait--I'm sure they will still be there when I get home.

  18. Can you tell me more about Meadow's Mountain. I googled it, but didn't find anything. I love it! A new bear paw quilt is in the back of my mind too, but then she is starting the new Christmas quilt...so many projects, so little time! LOL!!

  25. You've got some great building blocks going from all those scraps. I really like those Meadow Mountain blocks, do you have a pattern source for those? Stay warm. It's very cold here, but we didn't get any snow. It should snow if it's going to be this cold!
