    Here that one jtquilts. I am in awe at the wonderful "scrap" quilts that you ladies have posted. No quilt police better come to my house to see mine, they do not look that good. They are just that, scraps thrown together and quilted. yep that is me just a random goof.

    Did anyone see that on Aboutquilting.com they are doing a mystery quilt with scrap fabric requirements? Thought might be a good idea to do that one for yourselves to rid of scraps.

    ok another scrap trade idea: send your partner a block you have that well is in the ufo pile and see what they come up with turning it into say something larger finished that they determine it should be? food for thought

    OK, just to clarify: These are supposed to be a quart size baggy of scraps, correct? And when are we supposed to ship?

    I LOVE Brat's idea!!! I have squares and pcs left from all the quilts I made my grands. I keep thinking I will put them together some how and make a lap quilt for myself. Prob is the color and/or theme for each was soooo different. This might just work!!

    Here ya are. Forgot to add that. I started a thread over in the main area for chitter chatter. I have enjoyed doing the mystery quilt and this one is going to be great for the scraps.

    Here is an idea for scraps that I just saw on this board.
    Several months ago, someone posted a link to "Pure Comfort Wraps". I talked w/my DSIL (she works at an assisted living facility) and we decided to make them for Christmas for some of the residents that didn't have anyone that visited them. We needed 12. So, my cousin (made 1 2/3), her daughter (made 5), my DSIL (made 3 1/3), and I (made 2)decided to do this. I quilted all 12, and my DSIL bound all of them. So here are some of our pics.

    The pure comfort is a quilted shawl that you wear and these ladies made them for nursing home residents for Christmas. They gave them to residents who did not have any family. I have made these out of fleece before with a yard of fabric. Sherry

    I like them. The white keeps them uniform with all the beautiful colors. Now come get my scraps in order so I can just sew them up also.

    Like those pure comfort wraps ssnare. They seem more practical because they will stay on them instead of slide off the wheel chair and if they are with walkers, they will hang nicely as they walk back to their rooms. Nice of you to do them.

    Couldn't have said it better. I agree.

    Where I stayed at the convelescent home they took things to wash but half the time did not return them to their owners. They would get back other things instead. Is there anyway to put one white strip in those if you do them again and this way when gifted could have the patients name put on there with washable marker? better shot at getting them back to their owner. just food for thought.

    I am off to check out the mystery quilt. There is a scrappy mystery train coming here in the block of the month Dec 29th just a three week mystery quilt project for those who are interested.
    I keep my little scraps dont laugh sorted by color on my bookshelf. If its smaller than a f4 it goes on the shelf and I use them for my swap blocks all the time. Hows about you send me your scraps Quiltermomma.. glad to sort them.. and quickly shove them on my shelves. lol (ok it was a good try you must have oodles of scraps!).

    I am so ready for this swap. I have lots of sizes. I do mini quilts use as small as 1-1/2" to 4" and larger. Working on a quilt the largest pieces are 2-1/2". I have up to 10" pieces and all between. Some pieces are novelty kid prints and flowers, solids, even holiday prints.
    Kindergarden stayed with me, I still color, paint, draw and cut things up.

    Elisabrat, I wish you much happiness and thank you for your wonderful suggestion to put a white strip on the comfort quilts for nursing home patients. Why or why did I not think of that years ago!?!? The strip identifying the owner with the standard laundry marking will be ever so useful and there are other applications, as well. :-)
