Oh how nice Almond.
Life is short, live it while you still can. QuilterMomma
i like scrappy quilts. always on the lookout for new pattens to try. I save all my scraps as the tops I make from them and taken to my church group to be tie knotted and bound for nursing homes, homeless shelters and crisis nurseries. i have been working on reducing scraps out of my Rubbermaid bin that i use just for scraps. A couple months ago I took all the strips left over from sashings, bindings,and end of rotary cut strips. I pieced them together into 8" x 10" blocks. was going to alternate with plain blocks but had so many strips left I doubled the number of blocks i did and made twin size quilt of those string blocks. I have made 3-4 scrap quilts since--still bin is overflowing. the scraps multiply worse than bunnies on fertility drugs. but I will still keep stitching.
Ok, is this challenge still going?? Is this a new year for the challenge ending in Dec 2012??
How do we join?? Join post here??

Count me in..just last night was looking at my scraps and sketching out a plan..might be a little rough, since I am pretty new at this, but I look forward to the challenge..should be fun
I'm in seems like I always have a scrappy quilt going...................
I'm in as long as I won't be flogged if I can't get it done by Christmas.
A quilt is a hug for future generations.
I'm wondering too! I have been soooo good for 2 yrs to NOT buy anymore fabric! But here & there if something is really cheap, its gone. Such as: found 5 yds of a pretty pink for $2 at a thrift store! Seems like the stacks don't go down very fast.... I need to tell my kids what to do with my STUFF when I pass. They'll have no clue.,,,,
