    Ssnare, I love your scrappy quilt idea and the bright colors you used up.

    Rhonda, you are such a kick. And, wow, now even more ideas are popping through my head. Count me in for the club but at this point not for the swaps. Looking forward to all the fun this 'club' has to offer.

    I love making hexies & can usually use scraps to make some very pretty hexie creations. My LQS has scrap bags for sale on occasion - a gallon Ziplock bag that is full of beautiful, sometimes coordinating scraps for... wait til you hear this... TWO DOLLARS! I buy every one up when I'm there. I've made some really fun things with these scrap bags. I'm excited to follow along with the group.

    This thread will be a lot of fun so I'm in. I play all the time with scraps and love minis so a mini quilt made of scraps swap sounds so interesting. Look forward to sharing my scrappys and ideas for scraps.

    Here's a stupid question:

    For those of us who aren't into the miniature houses and stuff, what to you do with the mini quilts? Mug rug? Kitchen decor? Just curious what you guys do with them after they're done. They are far to pretty to stash away somewhere...

    Ok Rhonda, I'm back with you. I love scrappy, and want to use up a lot of my scraps. But I have about 9 lap sized quilts to actually quilt. So I'll be following for a little bit, then I'll be jumping in. Already did the Word Search. I love them too. Don't want to swap at the moment. You know my luck with that. 2012 I did to many BOMs and BOW's, so 2013, is going to be a bit slower.

    Just finished my first mug rug when I saw this thread...Rhonda, you are amazing...don't know how you do it. I will follow along but not ready for swaps...my last few were so so. So here is my scrappy mug rug for Sat. gift exchange.

    Thanks for all you do.

    Katie, I am like you. When I cleared off the bed in the guest room so my DD would have somewhere to seleep when she visited for Thanksgiving, there were 14 quilt tops waiting patiently to be quilted. One of them is Rhonda's BOW that I was in. That is my goal for the new year. Finish quilting everything that was on that bed.

    How did you know this is my goal for next year? I want to use up my scraps from all the UFOs that I finished this year. I have two 55 large gallon tubs full, two drawers of bright kid prints full, then several boxes of scraps that are a bit more organized by fabric type, such as flannel, plaids, florals, etc. Once I get these sewn up, I will have little to now fabric stash except batiks which are in their own tub and the Christmas are in their own tub as well.

    Now, are we allowed to mix any fabric we want or do these scrappies have to be matchy matchy? If we do the matchy matchy thing then you will all hate me because i grab and sew.

    Currently one of my ufos is a star quilt that is just Buggy Barn fabrics and I did stragically put scraps in a color formation. It is more work yes, but will show picks once I uncover it from the Christmas stuff I am getting done so this may be a couple more weeks.

    I have been using scraps to make some of my gingerbread men and peppermint twist runners, also the scraps have been used now for a border on a wall hanging for the second wall hanging swap Rhonda is hostessing. Worked great to put those in so i could rid myself of 1.5" strips and pieces.

    To tell a story here, the family's favorite quilt is a scrap quilt made of flannel strips and pieces that were left over from several projects of earthtone prints and fishing, that is all I had in flannels, I used one of those polyester cheap blankets from walmart that were getting pilled for the batting and just put on a flannel pieced back and it is the most used one in the house. Also made one of those log cabins in Christmas scraps years ago to make a Quillo that is loved at Christmas. Just some ideas. Will post a few photos later.

    Will love to follow along here. As for a swap, not up to that, I love my scraps and do not need to trade them out. The mug rug swap was loads of fun and enjoyed that.

    Ok, here are some scrap ufo finishes I did get done. I stacked all my fabric into boxes which dd classified as ufo because I had a plan and the pattern was with them as well. I am sure some of you have seen them. But this is putting those scraps to use. I also use them for the DQ swap so ladies join in the fun there to utilize both threads.

    No mistake, I cut so much fabric up that I ended up with two quilts and two scrap quilts with the scraps of them. Yes, those scraps do multiply in the cupboards.

    Oh yes, and then Fraew posted a scrap star quilt made with scrap squares. It is in the UFO thread near the end. i think she posted it around the beginning of November. It is absolutely stunning. I want to do my squares up like it.
