    WOW...I'm in. I just found this thread and it is fabulous. Since this is the second year I joined the Fabric Mortatorium, this should be fun as well as a challenge. Love it, Love it, Love it. Thank you "quiltmaker 101" for this wonderful idea and to encourage us to stretch our imagination.
    Added Note: yahoo...page 101 and the 1001 post.

    Scrap quilt challenge

    After I finished the 3 baby quilts, I still had more small scraps and this is what I did with them:

    I made 2 burp clothes from left over flannel

    The small pile of scraps will be saved for our scrap dive at our quilt show

    The large pile of scraps will go into the yellow pillow to make a bed for a kitty or puppy at the shelter for them to sleep on while they are there and also to take home with them when they go to their new home.

    All my scraps go into making doggy and kitty blankets for the animal shelter downtown. I get rid of the nuisance pieces and the animals get a nice cozy bed. It's a win win.

    I just love getting to use every scrap of fabric by making puppy bags. I feel like I waste nothing and like you say the puppies & kitties get something warm. It is diffently a win! win!

    Here's a leader/ender scrap quilt I did at my daughter's house while I was there for 3 weeks May '11. Scraps & stash only! I am doing the UFO challenge also, so this was one of the 2 that I posted in that challenge too. I am vowing to get lots of UFO's finished this year...alot of them are scrap quilt tops or tablerunners. So will work on them all while working on other things too. I actually love how this one came together...just pulled colors I liked together in 2 1/2" squares & (4 1/2" squares & sashing came from stash). Backing/binding from stash, too.

    I have lots of scraps and fq and leftover pieces but they aren't all in the same place so it will take a while to find them and go throuh them! 80) I think I'm up for the challenge though so off I go to search and destroy! hahahaha!!
    Sew, sew, it's the threads that keep love together :>} I love sunbonnet sue,old-fashioned things like 1950's or older housewife things, and like hankies,tea towels and aprons . Thanks to some lovely members on here I now have lots of aprons in my collection !!

    This is my lastest quilt made from scraps: The Cut-up (www.piecedtreepatterns.com) I used left over fabric to make this quilt (front & back). This quilt will be donated to Hospice to auction off at their annual ball.

    Doggie Bags

    Here are 6 more bags to go to the puppy pound for the littles one to have a bed. Most of the scraps are donated by our quilt club members. The outsides are made from wonder fabric (wonder what I was thinking when I bought this).
