    Quilting Board's First Scrap Club

    Welcome to the first ever scrap club on the Quilting Board!

    We all love to use up scraps so I thought it would be fun to get together and share ideas on a
    weekly basis. Every week I am going to post a fun word game for everyone to do. I think it would be
    great to see some tutorials on some fun ways to use those scraps and share lots of ideas.

    As a member of the Club you will get to share tips on using scraps/ view tutorials on using
    scraps/have fun with puzzles/share your ideas on using scraps/ and show off what you make with
    those scraps!

    I may add more things to the club as we go along. I want it to be a fun sharing atmosphere with
    lots of good information to share.

    I am open to a swap each month of scraps if anyone wants to do that.
    I primarily want to share info so we all have a place to find lots of good ideas.

    If anyone wants to do a scrap swap I am more than willing. Just didn't want to overload you all with scrap swaps if anyone else is already doing one.

    Are you SURE about the puzzle you posted? I can find lots of the words - but Babylock is giving me some trouble ( actually all of the "B" words but I'm giving up). There is only one "Y" in the puzzle and I am not finding the work I am looking for! A scrap lover's thread will be a wonderful addition. Thanks Rhonda!

    I'm loving the idea of uses for scraps... especially market-able ones. (DH thinks this is just a hobby that is going to COST him $$... I'm set out to prove him WRONG.)

    I am also interested in future scrap swaps.

    So count me IN

    The PDF version is missing the first column of letters. If you look at the lil picture it is in that first column, however the PDF is missing it. Hope that helps.

    LOL Yes I assure you they are all there! I did it myself without cheating and I found them all. Kenmore was one I didn't find right away. I think it was the last one I found.

    I'll post the answer to it on Fri.

    Hmmmm wonder what happened to the pdf? I did it in full size and then changed it to a 5 x 7 so it wouldn't take so much ink to print.

    This may explain why you can't find a few words cwessel47!

    Oh well the full page one has the first line in it so here is the full page size pdf

    Thanks Yosamitesa for pointing that out!

    For those interested in a swap I was thinking of 10 scraps none any smaller than 3 or 4" unless someone specifies differently. It can be a partner swap or a random swap where I just send you an address to send to and you wont' know til you get them who sent them. Either way is fun so doesn't matter to me at all. I have tons of scraps so would love to swap no problem.

    It might be fun to swap an item made out of scraps too or instead of the scraps.

    I'm in. Probably not for the swaps however due to postage. But that might change at some point as well. Thanks for the revised puzzle.
    Here is a quilt method I've been working on. Finished one and am about half-way through another. This is a great way to use up longer strips.

    You don't need her fancy rulers to cut into triangles. Missouri Star Quilts has a tutorial to cut using regular square rulers -- just search for "tube quilt".

    Mine asked me when the quilt spending would stop... I told him when I died.

    I like the idea of small scrappy items... I heard someone mention a while ago about wanting another mug rug swap. Belfrybat's link would be great for that!

    Then there's the 'make your own material from scraps' tutorial that was posted. Might be kind of neat to make our own material from scraps, swap, make something, then swap that item. (or swap back?)

    My first one was a sort-of success. (It didn't fall apart or anything, but I totally free-handed it instead of planning out my quilting, because I was just playing around. But it works for me!

    This was not any pattern. I just matched lenghs of fabric and if it looked ok together, I sewed it together. I just picked bright fabrics from my stash. This is a queen size quilt. I just finished a king size quilt with scraps on the back. I will take a picture and post it.
