    I'm in !!! love scraps and have been saving and collecting for years.. I will retire in March and plan to attack my scraps!!
    I am looking forward to the ideas I will find here. I am working on 4 scrap quilts for hospice. But since I only work on them at retreats it will be awhile before I post pictures !!
    Am looking forward to swaps also

    If you want to do it, I think the pattern will only be up till the end of the month. Here is my version.

    This sounds like fun...I've just been watching my scraps multiply for awhile now. Funny story, I wanted to make a scrap quilt as my very first quilt. I was purchasing a ton of quarter yards at Joanns. The lady cutting asked what I was making. When I said, proudly, "A scrap quilt", she folded her arms and said..." I don't think you understand the concept of using up scraps..." LOL she was so right!
    Blessed Be

    I just read through all of this thread and I immediately went to my Christmas scraps and I am making a scrappy table mat! Talk about instant motivation! I should be ready to post a picture tomorrow! I love this scrappy thread!

    Count me in! I'm using some scraps right now for the current leaders/enders project from Bonnie Hunt. I love creating the little 3" spool blocks. I'm hoping to have enough by the summer to create a queen size quilt. I was also in a couple of swaps that have a scrappy look. I'm going to use my scraps to create more blocks and make the quilts larger.

    I always like new ideas on using scraps. I will share when I have an original idea also.

    Thanks Poker Diva for that link- I downloaded all of the patterns!

    I would love to follow along this thread. I am currently in the middle of what I call my "Scrap Abatement Project". I was being over run with scraps & decided to try to use some up. I am done with the center of the top & need to add some borders. I had to buy some of the navy solid for the stars but that is it. It will be a generous full sized quilt. I am piecing the back out of flannel scraps. I've had to put this on hold until after the holidays. Here it is as I was putting the top together.

    I have to add that I always had a hard time doing true scrappy buy with these sashings stars I thought added some continuity & for me was easier to live with!

    My first scrappy quilt but I'm working on another one that should be done by next week. I'm a relatively new quilter so I'm finally able to work from scraps. I do believe as I've read here on the board that when your working on a scrappy project to get them used up that sometime during the night they have a way of multiplying...it seems like there are more scraps when I finished than wnen I started....LOL.

    Maggiemay, I think you are right. I do that alot when making scrappy. Make one part (usually background) the same to pull it together. Love your quilt.

    Joining First Scrap Club

    I am interested in the Quilting Board's First Scrap Club. This is a very good idea, because we
    quilters always have scraps of gorgeous fabrics, and as the months and years go by, the pile of
    cherished fabrics increases. And then you wonder: what can I do with all these pieces of beautiful
    cotton fabric? We can use them in scrap quilts or trade them with other quilters.
    I live in Netherlands and have been quilting since 1997. I am a member of the
    Netherlands Quilters Guilde. I have 2 basic loves in quilts:
    1. Traditional quilts from 1700 - 1900. Traditional Netherlands and English quilts.
    2. Flower garden quilts, using Medallion Quilt patterns.
    My first love are Reproduction Fabrics from the old Netherlands Sitsen fabrics. I have several
    scraps of these beautiful Chintz style fabrics. From our famous designers Den Haan & Wagenmakers.
    I also am very interested in American Reproduction fabrics from the Civil War years. My favourites
    are from Marcus Fabrics, designer Judie Rothermel. I also have some interesting Reproduction fabrics
    from Moda.
    Who would like to trade with me: Netherlands Reproduction Sitsen scraps for Civil War Reproduction
    scraps? I also have lovely fabrics with Roses. Wishing you success with this new club, greeting from:
    Molly Michel

    This must be an answer to my prayers. I have so many scraps and always wonder what to do with them. I have utilized some of them but I have a lot to go. I tried to join your home page but the confirmation email is not coming up. Any suggestions? Thanks, LittleDi

    Rhonda, still trying to gain access to account. The message tells me to enter the confirmation code but two emails from Etsy and neither has a confirmation code. Help! What am I doing wrong and how do I join this group? Thanks. Little Di
