    As some of you know, I'm in a war on my scraps. I've been trying to cut up all my misc. pieces and find bags or boxes appropriate for them. But, I grow weary of only cutting, so I've been sewing as well.

    I started to cut up the big pastel pieces that became the main part of the first pastel scrappy, and then I decided to use it whole and then make a strip of 1.5" pieces that coordinated (loosely) by looking in the bag of 1.5" pieces that I have been cutting for pieces that coordinated. You can see the end result. The off whites that are the 2.5" strips are also scraps/leftovers from various other projects. They don't match exactly if you could see them closely. :)

    The green bordered scrappy is once again 1.5" inch pieces. This is the "fraternal twin" to the red bordered one I posted not too long ago. I'm pleased. I suspect I'll do a black bordered one and then if I get brave, a yellow bordered one. Did I say that I have lots of 1.5" strips? :)

    I still have tons of scraps. Why? Well, Dec. and Jan. we finished up 80+ charity quilts and much of these pieces are leftover from those quilts--fronts and backs. I still have lots and lots of strips and squares but almost everything is chopped and sorted now. :) But I'm working on a couple more tops as well. I'm not sure if they will be charity quilts or not. We'll see. They probably will be. :)

    Wow! You are busy. Love them both. Isn't it funny how the more scraps you use the more they seem to grow. Almost like those little guys are multiplying right before your very eyes!

    Curious?
    What are you doing with all these quilts?
    You mentioned completing 80 in the winter for charity?
    Are these two for yourself or more for charity?

    Lucky Charities to have you as a their special friend.

    Both are beautiful, it's amazing how different they look coming from the same scrappy home. I really like the big print you used for the outer border on the first quilt, now that's an unusual fabric that looks fabulous when used in a scrap quilt.
