    I finished the quilting on this one today. I just did a simple stitch in the ditch. I tried to think of something a bit more challenging, but it just cried out for SITD. I still have to hand sew the back of the binding on, but another one off my list of to-dos. I left the scissors to get a gauge of the size. It's lap size.

    Love this Candace. I just finished the 3rd scrap tumbler for the kids at children's hosp. This is a fun pattern. Is yours the 3 or 6"? It goes fast doesn't it?

    When I read the post title, I was thinking it was some sort of container that lets you pick out a piece without seeing it so it would be random. Well, that's the way my mind works.

    Now that I see what you did, I have to say I love it.

    These are probably about 5". Actually this one went very slooooow. I've been collecting the scraps to use it in for about 6-7 years! LOL. I make sure each block or pattern I use in a scrap quilt is a different fabric.

    :> Though, that's usually how I put together my scrap quilts. I very randomly choose the next one in line.

    Of course it still needs to be washed and all shrunkified. That's my newest, favorite, made-up word.

    At a local shop during shop hop. The information on the package www.comequiltwithme.com
    $13.00 for the 3" and $8.00 for the 1 1/4. Yes I bought both but don't think I like the small one. I have cut out 280 (all from scraps) 3" ones cut out in 2 days. (Plans for 3 charm wall hangings) and extra's.

    Very pretty! This might be a dumb question but here goes... Did you sew it by hand or machine? I purchase a template from the MN quilt show but haven't tried it yet.

    I did it all by machine. And my template is much larger. Probably 5 inches. I'd prefer to do it with the larger one since it would take less time;>
