    So are you ready for some more little ones from scraps. Made 5 mini's. Laughing as # 5 is the smallest and I actually cut 3/4" strips of fabric instead of randomly selecting pieces. Boy that was hard for me to do!!!Name:  031.JPG

    Those are wonderful G I alway love your minis! It's too bad that AAQI had to quit the auction.

    Your pot holders look lovely. How do you get such small pieces of to sew together? What size of scraps did you use?

    Thanks for the kind remarks
    Yes Rhonda it is a pie safe with a hutch like top--it was left in my old farmhouse basement by the family who had lived here for a long time (50 years for one generation; not sure how long the preceding generation lived here). When I brought it up it was painted with a green paint (silly me I don't care for green) but it's made with square nails. First I painted it blue and antiqued it (this was the 70's you know) and used it as open shelving for quite some time as the doors were gone. I should've never painted it because I'm sure that was an original "milk paint" finish--antique value just plummeted in one swipe of the paint brush! When oldest son was about 12 and in 4-H he punched the tin designs for me and then nailed them to simple butt jointed frames. Fast forward 30 years and it's time for a redo. I'm thinking of having DS oldest son (now 12 yo) make new oak frames and put the tin designs in properly as a 4-H project. Somewhat of a circular project don't you think?

    I had the 9P's made--sometimes I just mindlessly sew scraps together into 9P's or 4 P's. These I used 1" scraps on for a 1 1/2" block. The strings were just that--strings and odds and ends foundation pieced to a 2 inch square to finish at 1 1/2". The log cabin uses 3/4" wide pieces. The Hole in the Barn door blocks are also 1 1/2" finished.

    Glad I contributed to you smile count today Ronda!

    Yep I'm sure it was the old milk paint. Too bad you painted over it but if I didn't like the color I probably would have too. I have a large bookshelf that came from an old barn that has the green milk paint on it. I considered repainting it but decided to leave it alone. I love all sorts of old cabinets.
    they are especially great as backdrops to the mini quilts

    I have decided I won't be making anything with my selvages. I'll swap narrow strips (1" the smallest) for some. Got a busy week and weekend ahead so can't do it immediately.

    I'd be willing to swap depression blocks- do you only use tone on tone fabrics in your blocks? and what size of half square triangles? I have a ton of HSTs right now, all different types of fabrics, and been looking for a pattern to use them in. They are all 3.5". Do yours all have the same background, as in the picture? And the same color of corners, like the picture? I'd also be willing to swap some of these HSTs. I don't just have all cream or white backgrounds, but I'd rather my scrap quilts didn't. I also have other sizes of HSTs.
    I'd also be willing to swap some shorter strings; I don't have 42" strings.
    it would probably be easier for me to do side swaps, as I need a little extra time, due to my health constraints.

    That was just an example of the Depression block. We (or Rhonda) can decide the details.

    Did this swap take off? Or is there still interest ? I'd be willing to swap some of either patterns or another if agreed upon. Send me sizes, types of fabric, civil war, depression whatever. thanks, jerilee

    I could swap depression style squares, any size of square of mixed style fabrics. I have drawers full of every size from 1 1/2" up to 6 1/2", and quite a few HSTs in many sizes up to 3 1/2". I just can't do a group swap, due to postage costs. I have a few civil war fabrics that I would like to get a few more pieces of different ones, and I'd like to swap larger pieces of white on black fabrics for a sampler quilt I'd like to start. I am open to swapping with several people to get different fabrics exchanged in my size drawers.

    Here is what I've been doing with scraps lately. This is a homemade greeting card. One of you fabulous ladies inspired me with a homemade card in one the the swaps. These hexagons have 1/4" sides. I'm working on an actual quilt project with 1.25" hexagons using I-spy type scraps and pieces from larger fabrics.

    Swap Sign Up

    Okay here is what I am seeing.
    Looks like Oksewglad and jclinganrey can swap strips -selvedge for 1" strips
    Goldendog55 /jerilee/ Janice and jclinganrey would like to exchange blocks.
    Ladies on the block swap give me a concensus if you'd like to each do the same block or each do your own choice block.

    so anyone else interested in joining in a swap??

    Foxflower, Love your homemade card. It is a great way to use up those scraps that are just TOO small for anything else. I have found that the small strips of Steam-a-Seam work really well for tiny scraps. Thanks for sharing your talents in a picture. I am passing on any swaps for now. I am in a round robin and that along with trying to get quilt finished for DGD's graduation next May is enough for me for now but I will enjoy watching what all you come up with. Please post pictures. :-)

    I have and love Christmas fabric, so if anyone is interested in swapping, I'm in. Working on 2 English Paper Pieced Scrappy throws for the 2 ladies that took care of Dad before he passed away. So I will need a change SOON.

    The selvage swaps are on the side. Let's get going with a scrappy block swap. My 1st choice would be the Depression block - - -quick & easy. You choose the size. 2nd choice is the White House steps block.

    Phyllis I'm fine with setting up a 2 1/2" if we have anyone interested. No problem at all.

    Golden as long as your partner is fine with it the mailing date can be open ended.

    I'll wait until this next Fri for sign ups and then we'll set up the swap. So if anyone is interested jump in!
    the rules can be as lax as you all are willing. I'm easy to work with.

    1. goldendog - block/ HSTs/ strings/fabric swatches
    2. jerilee - block
    3. jclinganrey- block/strips
    4. Janice McC - block
    5. oksewglad - 1" strips
    6. sunrise450 -2 1/2"
    7.
    8.

    Okay I had this list ready to post before I saw jcling's post. so we can do a block swap first and then if anyone is interested a 2 1/2" swap.

    sunrise450 is that squares HSTs or strips?
