    I didn't set a size but I imagine everyone is doing 12 1/2"
    I guess I just kind of assume that is what everyone wants.

    Oh oh oh...more pretties! You just can't enough scrappy in my opinion!

    Here is my latest controlled scrap quilt finished. It's for my granddaughter...doesn't even look like my stash was touched. But I did use a couple of new fabrics amongst my scraps. It's backed with a lavender flannel so she can snuggle with it. Purple is her favorite color right now.

    Your quilt block can be anything you like as long as it uses scraps.

    I wonder what qualifies as scrappy scraps? lol I figure less than a f8th but I am sure its up to interpretation. for me.. aside from the f8less than its also like fabric after I make a quilt and its the left overs.. some are bigger some are big old 5 inch wide strips but 8 feet of them.. is that too big to be a ..scrap? no you dont have to answer it was one of those ponder moments lol.

    ok and someone here just posted I have a tub full just like average. does everyone have a tub full? you guys are putting a whole lot of ponderous thoughts in my mind and well I really dont have a tub full. guess I could pull it off the shelf and fill an easter basket with them. I wonder has anyone made a scrappy valentine yet? getting time. or maybe a post card? scraps would be grand on those. I havent tried post cards yet.

    LOL I love showing them off. I try not to be obnoxious about it tho! but my mom has this habit of giving the hearts to friends and relatives every year so I am making more to replace the ones she gave away! LOL

    BTW the smallest velveteen heart is 3/4". I love challenging myself on them. I have a few more of them I just made in the last few days. they are fun to make

    Elsabrat...you asked, "ok and someone here just posted I have a tub full just like average. does everyone have a tub full? " I have two plastic bins full and still don't mind getting more. My goal by end of this year is to have it down to one bin full. Many of my scraps are 3 inches or smaller so I have a job ahead getting many of them used up.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    I'm the one with the "average" tub of scraps. I didn't say it well.....I have a tupperware tub of average size worth of scraps. I don't know what a normal amount of scraps is either. That's like asking what a normal size stash is I think.

    I want to try postcards too. I'm thinking of adapting some papercraft cards to fabric for that purpose. There are some great homemade card ideas out there.
