    SO... I Started a Scrappy LOL

    This Was My Plan To Finaly Use the Fabric in My 'Scrap Basket'. IT was Very Very FULL! I thought if I make Say 24 blocks that would make a Good size 'Dent' Silly ME!
    As you Can tell from the Picture Not even Close to a Dent. As a matter fact I think ITS Growing Like the 'Blob' in that old Movie!LOL I think I could Sew for a Year and IT will Still Be there! Its a Magic Fabric Basket. HELP! I'm posting 2 Pic's one of My hall with the 'BLOB' and the Blocks so far.

    I love your scrap basket and your blocks. It looks like fun to just dive in there and grab some scraps. I make string blocks with my scraps and find it very addictive. There is a soothing quality to just grabbing and sewing.

    Great start on the first of many (smiley face) scrap quilts. I like the different shapes you used on the colorful blocks. I have tamed my scraps by cutting blocks and strips. Rather ho-hum as contrasted with your blocks showing such movement. Quilt On!

    LOL...Every time I use some my scraps I end up with more. I had one large tote and said that was all I was alloying myself...then there was two....and now I've a box and a basket I've added to the pile. So you're right It multiplies!

    You do know that those scraps multiply when left alone in a sewing room don't you. LOL I have lots and lots and love them all! I love making scrappy squares. I make a lot of potholders out of mine. I have a quilt top done but haven't started the quilting process yet.

    What a great scrap basket. My Mom loves to come to my house and "play" in my scrap basket.

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one whose scrap basket looks such a jumble!!! I start to sort it out and then loose the will so they all end up getting tossed back in - but having seen yours I know I can do it and try to make some blocks that look as good as yours so keep us posted with your quilt progress

    My guess is that you have enough scraps for 5-6 scrappy quilts if all that I saw were the scraps you can use. So, never fear, it feels like they multiply when you aren't looking!

    Good reminder..I just bought some more fabric for a quilt, but I think I will first make up a bunch of scrappy string blocks first. To to use up some of my scraps. I have been making hook rugs, which has really helped alot. May try making another one of those to.
