    Ok, here are some scrappy runners I did this week for the craftshow booth in a couple of weeks... The cow one is leftover scraps from Judy's 5th Mysterytrain. Also, does the purse count for scrappy? It's an old t-shirt my mom (now gone) gave me & a piece of microfiber fabric I found. It's my own pattern...4 pockets & a zip pocket inside, 2 pockets outside on the back. The purse is now my summer purse.

    I guess this counts too...my grandson's queen size t-shirt quilt. I used the BQ pattern & added scraps of sports fabrics to make the required 12 1/2" squares needed & the binding is just leftovers from the sports fabrics sewn randomly together. He loved it! It took most of my time these last few months. His Mom & Auntie are helping him hold it up for pic. And wouldn't you know that the football shape I quilted in it was the one I messed up & it's the one that shows in the pic??? Oh, well................

    These quilts are fantastic, love them all! Right now I am working on a quilt/bed spread. What is a quilt/bed spread? I have two boston terriers that sleep day and night on our bed. They are clean dogs but I just don't feel like they should be sleeping on my comforter. Plus I really have wanted to make a quilt for that bed.
    Thanks to the many ideas that every one here has come up, I am working on a quilt for that bed that I can also get washed on a regular basis.
    It uses strips from my stash and 10" blocks that I received in a swap, actually lots of swaps.Thats it.I sew the strings to the blocks and sew them together using Deter's method. There is no batting so not as much weight.
    I will send a picture if and when I can post one.
    Thankyou Rhonda for starting this scrap club, I have really enjoyed it.

    I so enjoyed seeing everyone's pictures, I particulary love the purse! And the t-shirt quilt layout is awesome!

    I've mostly been a lurker but now I guess I don't even qualify for that. DH was in the heart hospital for heart failure with AV block. (Basically heart rate was under 40 and he was swollen from his feet to his calf! They had to put him on mega doses of diuretics before they could put in pacemaker on Monday but this made his already compromised kidneys due to diabetes spiral downward. That crashed his iron level, dropped to 7.6! They wanted to give him a blood transfusion but I questioned it as the kidney specialist told me she didn't like transfusions (it makes it harder for a donor match if he needs a transplant). So, they re-ran the bloodwork and it was 8.4 which was only .2 below the day before.

    Finally got him home but he's on meds 4x per day and I haven't been able to work (no income coming in) because he needs monitoring. His stroke in 2008 caused some memory problems so I have to be sure he takes his meds! BUT he's still not back on the diuretics so his feet are starting to swell and I'm hoping the kidney specialist will let him go back on a lighter doseage of the diuretics on Tuesday so we don't wind back up in the hospital with shortness of breath and fluid retention.

    Work is piling up at work and home and I really needed to take this break today and catch up with you folks.

    I'll try to check in from time to time I love seeing your projects! Please keep Charles in your prayers. (He's only 60!)

    Rhonda, do you think it is possibly to have a string swap? Strings any where from 1 1/2" to 2 1/2". There are so many thing you can make with strings, depending on the size. I can picture a drestan plate block, any number of table runners, made with either 2 1/2", 1 1/2" squares or just strips. Of course there are pot holders, center pieces, candle mats etc.

    Love that t-shirt quilt. Nice job on the layout.
    Rhonda, is this the time for the orphan blocks to swap? That's what I thought it was from the post ealier last week.

    This swap is a SCRAP SWAP I can do an orphan block but I need at least 4 people interested. I also would do a string swap with the same 4 people need to be interested.

    I'm glad you all enjoy the club!!

    Okay here is what I have for the SCRAP SWAP ---

    If anyone wanted to be in the swap - let me know. If I missed anyone who told me I apologize. I'll be glad to add you.
    Please let me know if you have anything specific to send or anything you want in specific.

    ================================================== ======
    Marich52

    I have 1 1/2, 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 strips. Some 3". Not all are WOF and colors/types are pretty across the board.
    I don't have much in the way of novelty. I do have batiks.

    I don't want novelty, would love green 2 1/2 strips. I like brights and florals.
    ================================================== ===========
    lynnie

    i'm making a pink and white quilt, so I need pinks 2 1/2" wide. or anything else.
    ================================================== ===========
    Foxflower

    A scrap swap could be helpful to me. I need scraps appropriate for a crazy quilt, heavy on the blue and green.
    So, ribbons, wool, satin, velveteen, plaid, anything not too heavy. Would that work? I only have a a small
    sample of materials appropriate other than quilting cotton, and variety is good for a crazy quilt I would think.

    Judy5cents

    I am in Canada so would prefer to be matched with a fellow Canadian if possible to save on postage,

    I am currently working on a scrap grandmothers flower garden quilt and do crumb quilting so any scraps are perfect, I have
    lots to trade, just need to know what size envelope to fill.

    I am currently working on a strip quilt. all colors, anything goes. I have mostly short strips, 1/2 of the WOF or less, but not less than 8 to 15 inches. 100% cotton. Can do the complete WOF if needed. Also, not less than 1 1/2" wide. 2 1/2" would b e perfect.
    Rhonda, a PM will be heading your way!

    Judy, your fading charms is beautiful! The white sashing sets the colors and the fading colors are so subtle and exquisite. I look forward to see the finished project. OK, time for me to start cutting and piecing little squares .....
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
