    I would be for a scrap swap but probably not till after the 1st of the year because we are in the process of moving.
    Quilting is an addiction that you can be proud of and enjoy.

    I started this last night, but instead of making it 60 x60, I'm making it a mini that will be about 32 x 32 I hope.

    I got up this morning and worked on my scrappy table mat. It is about 16"x16". My DSIL had already cut the 1 1/2" strips. I still need to finish the binding but, I have other things to accomplish today!

    Rhonda do we have to do anything special to sign up or will the Scrap Club be in the regular QB newsletter? Sounds like lots of fun.

    If you want to swap scraps then yes you need to sign up and send me your address. If you are going to participate in the daily fun then no you don't have to sign up.

    The only way this will show up in the digest is if it is active on a daily basis. So the more active it is the more often you will find it on the digest or newsletter.

    If you prefer you can click on Thread Tools up above and then click on subscribe and you will get notices when someone posts. You will also be able to find the thread easily in your subscribed threads list.

    To find the thread in your subscribed list just click on home. Look at the menu that goes across below the dark gray strip that has Home / Resources/Blogs etc and you will find Quick Links listed right below Members List. Click on Quick Links and the first menu option is Subscribed Threads. Click on this and you will find all the recent threads you have been using that you subscribed to. Once you've done it a time or two you will get used to it. I use it all the time instead of searching for the thread I want.

    Recap
    Click on
    Home
    Quick Links
    Subscribed Threads

    Then you can find your thread in your list

    Babylock is there. First column to the left backwards going up

    Thank you for the link to the free pattern. I really like this style and am going more this direction because most scraps I buy and they are of older fabrics that go with this style.

    Rhonda, I would like to particpate in this Club. :-) I find it so satisfying to challenge myself to use my stash and scraps. Thanks for the invitation to join and your efforts to get this on the front burner....

    So far I've used the wax paper bases, adding machine bases, and business yellow pages for scrap blocks. Now I need to sew them together so I will follow along with this thread. I have bags of scraps...and some drawers too.

    As I LOVE doing things with scraps...& they are abundant at my house!...this will be a good thread to join. I have more fun figuring out what I can do with scraps than I do with my extremely large stash!!! As a crafter that does craftshows, I'm always coming up with things to make for the booth that uses scraps. I am a "one of a kind" crafter, so never 2 exactly alike anyway...so scraps are right up my alley! Here's something I started making yesterday...use 24-2" squares for front (I used 4 each of 6 different fabrics--all small partial strips that I got 4 squares each out of), 1- 6 1/2"x9 1/2" scrap for back, 2- 6 1/2"x9 1/2" scraps of muslin for inside lining (1st I used a gluestick to glue a piece of lightweight vinyl to them--same size--...let it dry...then treat it as one fabric), a 9" or longer zipper, fabric or ribbon for the handle (12" long...to be folded in 1/2 & placed 1 1/2" down from top before sewing all together). I am very used to sewing on vinyl, but if you're not, here are a couple hints for doing it...use a plastic foot (not metal as it sticks), foot pressure to 1 (3 is for normal sewing), a little pulling GENTLY while feeding while sewing, pinning is done in seam allowance, & gluestick comes in real handy. I usually serge my seams, but not when using vinyl (sticks really bad) so just zigzag edges for finished edges (making sure zag goes to edge to enclose any fabric ravillies. Turn & enjoy!

    Pics are of front & back...

    Just wanted to tell you all how I make my scrappy blocks like the strip blocks or crazy squares I use light weight interfacing for the foundation.... that way I can leave it on the back of the blocks... makes for a stronger quilt top and will wear better. Count me in I love those scrap quilts etc.
