    Thanks Rhonda--there's something so simple yet dramatic about the TATW isn't there?

    I loved the Trip from the time I started quilting 30 years ago. The Bear's Paw was hte first quilt block I learned to make and the Trip came not long after that. Here is a quilt I designed along time ago. I made it lap size. This one isn't scrappy but if you keep the values the same you could make it scrappy.

    I called it Trip Around Nine

    Here is a link that Julie in NM posted earlier. It is a 12 1/2" block that is made with 1 1/2" squares. I liked the block but do not normally cut my scraps any smaller than 2". So I thought if I made that block with 2 1/2" squares I may only need one block for a table topper. Here is my version with those squares. It comes out to 24 1/2" unfinished but I am going to add two more rounds of yellow and 1 more round of scraps. Thanks Julie.

    As most people know I am a miniaturist and I make small gift items. I also teach my own shortcut methods which can be used to make any size "block" or unit.

    I sew pieces of fabric together and then cut out a "block" as in a Boston Block or a Star Point block etc.
    This allows you to make blocks with small pieces within the cut out block.

    This is a good way to use up scraps!! Recycling the leftovers is what I do. We use larger scraps and make Boston Blocks or HSTs or my other blocks and the leftovers can be recyled into more of my Blocks.
    We make these up ahead and then you can just pick them up and use them whenever you have a project to make.

    Because the size is up to you then you can use a 1 1/2" template up to a 4" template to make anything you want.
    A 2 1/2" template will make a 12 1/2" quilt block if you use a design(one of mine or others) that uses 6 rows of 6 blocks.

    Here are a few more ideas of things I have made- I usually use a 1 1/2" or 1 1/4" template.

    I have not yet read all the posts but please count me in on this. I have several scrappy projects in the works but have 4 huge plastic tubs of scraps so won't run out for many years. I will try to post a picture once in a while of the scrappy projects I am working on. Thanks Rhonda for starting this.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    Hi all...I finished this tonight, all scrappy, even the binding was left over from a previous quilt. It's made mostly from 1 1/2", 2 and (8) 3" squares. And by the way Rhonda, your 2 1/2" template was used to make the four patches, and I really only know your way of half squares... I quilted it, but now I have to quilt a large quilt before I do more scrappy. This certainly didn't use up all my scrapps. It actually made me organize to 1 1/2", 2" and 3" boxes so I'll try to cut my scraps before putting them in another scrappy box. I'll be looking at all the quilts for more ideas.

    I just saw this thread tonight but love the idea of a scrap club for ideas and inspiration. Not making too much right now but hope to get into more in the coming months. Trying to get on top of a few things and finish piecing my dd quilt and then will hand quilt. but want to maybe work on some other things in between the quilting.
    I see it is up to 14 pages already so maybe I can catch up tomorrow night. ;-)

    What a darling quilt klgreen!
    This fall I decided to do something big with my scraps. I don't take a big chunk and cut it into squares--sometimes that chunk is just enough to be borders in my minis.
    I've gone through my 1 1/4" scraps and have a quilt about half done using from that bin cutting borders from my stash.
    Next went to my 1 1/2" bin--made some checkerboard square 8 x8 to put star points on. Also have 4 1/2" squares to put star points on. Finally a bunch of 2 1/2" squares for a larger 8 x8 checkerboard. All for one +90 x 100 quilt. Lot of leaders and enders for when I do other projects.

    And there's still stuff in the bins. I'm just going to keep at it for a while.

    I have to decline on this one. Still struggling to get Christmas cards ( and ecards) out but I still like to write a note in each one. Perhaps I will take you up on this challenge if you do one in January. :-)
