    I forgot to mention that my other favorite quilting link is to: Free Motion Quilting Project. It is just amazing; such a young girl, under 30 yrs old, and so educational!

    I need some ideas and patterns on what to make using fabric scraps ranging from 1/4" to 1 7/8" please. I just do not want to toss them in the trash. They are all in different shapes.

    I just came across this article titled "Scrap User's System" that I thought was very interesting. I thought it would be very helpful since we work and store a lot of scraps.

    The reason that was a problem was because when it posted one row was left off. if you can't find it that is why. It was because of the pdf printer I used. I went back and reposted it later on so go look for the second version.

    Mary I have seen where they have used those scraps and placed them on a piece of fabric and covered them with a light mesh then sewn over it to quilt it down. It is an interesting treatment.

    You could sew them together into a crumbs pattern. I don't use a backing but you can. I just sew them together and trim where needed. Just keep adding them together any way you like til you have a bigger piece of fabric

    Here is my tutorial on my confusion method(similar to the crumb version) -http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...on-t30920.html

    Of course if you want to you can also use my shortcut blocks. when you cut out a half square or Boston or Star Point you can use whatever scrap has enough size to it to make a 1 1/4" boston. only takes enough for 1/4th of the Boston for a scrap. We make them 1" 1 1/4" or 1 1/2". the size scraps you ahve to use would work fine for this. Maybe not the 1/4" scrap pieces LOL but the larger ones would.

    To use my methods you sew the scraps together and then cut out a square with a template so it is easy to do. These below use Boston Blocks HSTs and Kansas Dugout blocks.

    Oksewglad, I like your courthouse steps. If they are made of crumbs they could be called "Crumbling Courthouse Steps." Our county court house is beautiful, but some of the masonry is crumbling around the edges. We are also in a succession pro county, so the liberated courthouses make sense around here too. You definitely got my mind going.

    Thanks foxflower. Crumbling CH Steps--perfect! Generally the liberated quilting leans toward modern quilt fabric, but what a surprise for me to see these country fabrics adapt to this style. Will definitely use this technique again when I'm not in an "anal" mood!

    Anyone want to swap 2.5 inch squares ? I cut hundreds out today from freshly ironed scraps with my used accuquilt I bought myself off of ebay for my 50th birthday . I just sent a med flat rate box of crumbs out today and have lots more . PM me if interested in crumbs and strings for postage, or in swapping charms 2.5 or 5 inch squares or even scraps . I have not bought any fabric for a couple of years and love to trade around . What I consider crumbs are pieces I can not get a 1.5 inch square from or larger pieces that I am sick of seeing lol. I may not be able to mail until after my next stretch off work. ( I work six 12 hr nights in a row , so all I do these days are sleep and work lol) anyone interested PM me .

    LOL Izy!!! I was just browsing through and looked through the pics without looking to see who posted them. I got to the last and its a bookmark and I'm going I KNOW that I've seen that bookmark before!!! I think it's the one Izy sent me the pattern for along time ago and I've never made yet! LOL and then scroll up and find it is YOURS!!! LOL I've always loved how you make yours with the tassle and all. All of your projects are beautiful my friend!

    A BIG THANK YOU to everyone for making this such a successful fun thread. I really appreciate all the postings and pictures!! Keep it up!! I'm glad I started it! and enjoy seeing all the ideas right along with you all.

    Tho the thanks goes to a friend of mine who mistook what I commented to her. I said welcome to the scrap club as you would say welcome to the grandma club(not a real club!) so I thought well if she wants to join a scrap club let's just start one!! So I did. So thanks Ms C for the inspiration.

    Anyone wanting to trade or swap 2 1/2" squares? If we have at least 6 I would organize it for you if you like. any less than 6 and I think you can pair yourselves up.

    To organize it the rules are

    minimum of 6 people

    set of 10-- 2 1/2" squares
    100 % cotton fabric
    all diff fabrics per set
    as many sets as your partner agrees to

    Mail out within 7 days after partners are assigned

    If you'd like to make it more than 10 per set I can change that.
    If anyone is interested that is international we would need someone willing to mail international

    please let me know if you are interested

    I have a huge supply of selvedge edge strips, if anyone wants them for the postage cost. If you do, I'll have to figure out what size of box they will fit in.
