    Scrappy Quilt for SIL

    I was determined to use up scraps so decided to try one using as much of my scraps as possible. I made this for my SIL to help her recover after a car accident. I was able to use all scraps with the exception of the border and put together using QAGY method so the back is scrappy too.

    That's wonderful Vicki, I just love scrappy quilts. And I love the back as much as the front. I think this year, I have to get my UFO's finished, and not buy any more fabric, and next year do a scrappy or three or six and use up all my fabric, so I can buy more. I make little quilts a lot so it doesn't use up my stash very quickly. So hope you don't mind if I start with some of my scraps and copy you.

    Such striking quilts folks! The blue border in the triangle quilt sets it off so well--and yes the back is great as well.

    Scrappers, I have 12 6.5" squares of Sponge Bob fabric (blue background with sponge bob and the starfish character, fairly large print) that I want to pass to somebody who will use them. I'll send them no-charge to the first person to PM me with their mailing address.

    this was a mystery quilt but can't remember who sponsored it. If I can find the pattern again, I'll post a link. It was actually pretty easy, although I did turn one of the HSTs the wrong way but, hey, you'll NEVER notice it with all that's going on in that quilt.

    And, yes, she did love it. Thanks for all the sweet comments.

    regina I made an off hand comment to a friend about being in the scrap club meaning like you'd say welcome to the grandma club! not a real club. So when this friend wanted to know what the scrap club was like it got me thinking about creating a real scrap club! so you have my friend to thank for the idea! LOL

    So who is up for an item swap????? I am going to update the scrap swap here in a few mins and get it going. So if anyone is interested in making an item and swapping then let me know here or in a pm.

    As to what the item is I thought maybe that could be the partners decision together rather than making it a specific item taht many may not want to make or may not need. so if you partner wants to do a hot pad and you want to do a mugrug then you can agree or find a compromise. What do you think?

    there are enough set swaps out there I'd like this to be a bit more unique and have more options.
    but I'll go with the flow and what everyone wants to do is fine with me.
    If you all prefer to set a particular item as the swap I'll be happy to do that too.

    We could also make it a blind swap and everyone make something small as in mug rug size etc and then I give out addresses so noone knows what is coming til they get it.

    scrappy squares

    Hi everyone.............. this is one of the ways I use my scraps. I have 49 - 10" squares done. Almost enough for a quilt. My next quilt to use scraps is going to be a string quilt of some sort. There are so many beautiful scrap quilts shown on QB and I love them all........ scrappy quilts are one of my favorite to make.

    Finaly sorting my scraps into colors. What do I do with the ones with busy prints? Some do not seem to fall in one color group.

    Elisabrat, I have 12 1/2" spring blocks I will trade with you if you want to.

    Rhonda, when you did the braid quilt, how wide were your stips?

    I just knew I would get goldendog 55 for a swap partner. Yippee!
