    Smile I now have scraps!

    I have to share ...
    About a week ago I posted on a thread that was about scrappy quilts. I love the ones I see on here and I posted that I could not wait, as a new quilter, to have scraps to make one. I received a message from one of the members here that for just the price of postage she would send me some scraps - she has quilted for a long time and would be glad to share. I received those scraps yesterday - AWESOME!!!!! I am so excited. I can not wait to start a quilt.
    I just wanted to say what an awesome message board this is with the most generous, kind and helpful members.

    I have only been here a short time and have already experienced more than one act of generosity. Wow, you ladies rock.

    And a big THANKS to my scrap donor!!!!!! They will be put to good use!

    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    You will have to post some of the scrappy quilts that you make to help give the rest of us some help to get started again

    Great generosity to the donor of the scraps! I am sure you will have fun with your new box of scraps. You will have to show us your progress.
    How wonderful your need was filled ... as I am sure your heart is also!

    Yes, this board and its members are wonderful! I, too, am a recipient of scraps from a board member & I am grateful for her generosity. I'm about to start a ticker tape quilt mainly using the scraps she sent to me! And, I set aside a portion of my scraps to send on to someone else in the future.

    Have fun with those scraps! You may want to check out Bonnie Hunter's website, www.quiltville.com. Read about her scrap users system and check out her many free patterns. Lots of good information there and she also has a good blog. :-) Laura

    You're welcome
    Look forward to seeing what you make of them
    Do followup on Sewplease's suggestion of Bonnie Hunter's website - lots of great scrap quilt ideas. Also take a look at the Scrappy Quilts section on this Board - terrific scrap quilt collection.

    People on the board are wonderful.. I've gotten scraps from a couple of people..and I've also passed on scraps, or squares to others.. It's a little funny, but I don't have many pieces with yardage..Most of what I have is under a yard, but that is okay, as I really like working with scraps..
    I presume this is the way it used to be, and all the sharing that went on in other generations..

    It is fun to hear what everyone does with the scraps they get. A friend and I make "chaos" blocks for charity quilts. They are quite a lot of fun to do but a fair amount of sewing.
