    Thanks for sharing! You've made me feel better about my sewing room. It looks like a work in process too and I actually am working on a quilt! Love your sewing machine!!

    Your scrap quilt is going to be fun and beautiful.
    I know what you mean about them growing like the "Blob". I have 12 drawers that are 12" x 12" x 7" of larger scraps sorted by color, 2 shopping bags of odd strips (one light, one dark), 2 blanket bags of smaller pieces ( one light, one dark). I have made 3 queen size tops and have 3 more in the works of scrap quilt and have barely made a dent. Oh, I forgot the box of hst's that I use for beginners and enders.

    I know from where you speak.
    I have that problem too. Yet I buy more fabric.
    I also have the blob in my cupboard..It seems to me that the blob keeps attacking the coffee mugs. I haven't bought a mug in more years then I can remember and yet they keep coming..lol

    I know what you mean about the scraps multiplying! I started quilting in 2005 or 06 and now have 14 plastic tubs (not the big ones, but middle size) of scraps separated by color. Thankfully, I love making scrappy quilts. Will by watching for your finished product. Going to look great.

    You need to be an athlete to get over your sewing bench to get to your machine
    I love your scrappy blocks and can't wait to see what you do with them. Happy Scraping!!

    I have been working on a box of scraps all summer, and it still doesn't shrink. I do believe that it multiplies at night.

    Your blocks are such fun! I have bins of scraps and no matter how hard I try they just won't go away. Maybe because I won't let them. I make scrappy quilts but the pile keeps growning. I think I have scrap fairies . Hooray for scraps!

    I love doing these blocks since I discovered them on this site. They are so me because there is no a accuracy. Just go with it and use a template to get the final accuracy. And I love your room! It is so real.

    I am convinced that the scraps just keep growing. I made have made 7 quilts from my scraps and still could make several more. Taking a break and using some yardage and adding more scraps to the others. I don't think it is possible to ever use them up.

    I wish I could say that is all I had was one basket of scraps. Many of the ladies give me there scraps, left over threads, and really anything they consider thrash. As a matter of fact I'm going through several trash bags of this stuff again today.

    They use to think I was nuts in sewing like I did but they all seem to like my pieces in the end and hence I get more scraps than I know what to do with. I am though going to make a concerted effort to smash that down in the next few months just to try and keep up.

    I use no patterns. I just sew scraps together and than decide how I am going to cut them up. I was stitching and slashing long before they had classes on it.

    I especially like to use these sewed scraps and embellish threads and the like on them. I really have no plan of action when I start and often times start seeing an object/picture in those sewed scraps that tells me what to do with it. I have yet to this day ever used a pattern for such.
