    Taming of the Scrap Piles - first project of 2013 :)

    Before I was going to start any new projects on my list this year I was going to "tame my scrap pile" Using the Majic Square pattern from my guild I decide to get to work. Here you will see the two containers that I stuffed with scraps and the 5 quilts I made from the scraps. 2 of the quilts will go to my guild for charity quilts, one went to my quilting bestie, one to my sister in Canada to use at their cabin in northern Saskatchewan, and one to stay here to remind me of all the beautiful fabrics/quilts I have made in the past few years. I took lots of pictures so if any of you would like a tutorial please indicate and I will get one posted soon here.

    Did you use a foundation? paper or cloth? I love string quilts and these are beautiful! What do your scrap boxes look like after?

    I love them all. I don't have enough scraps to make a scrappy quilt. Yours are beautiful.

    Wow, you were very productive. That was some very fast quilting since the first of the year. Great work.

    Lovely quilts - did you just dive in and pick fabric randomly? I can see how they are put together but a tute would be much appreciated if you have the time

    That's three in favor of a tutorial. You're amazing to make these five quilts in 23 days!!! They're wonderful.

    Good job. I tamed my scrap pile by giving it away to someone in the area on Freecyle. Once I had it all organized I had 5 printer paper boxes stuffed full. Even after I spent the last 2 years making scrappy quilts. I gave up and it went away. Then I made an annoucement at my quilting group that I don't want scraps anymore.

    Very pretty quilts. Is it Bonnie Hunter's strip twist http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/strip-twist.html ?

    Your quilts look great. I am working on scrappy quilts, a resolution for the new year. So a tutorial is something I need.

    I don't think I have quite that many scraps but I need to make one of them too.
    Blessed are the quilters, for they are the piecemakers.

    I would love a tutorial on this "Magic Square" quilt. Were all the strips cut to the same widths, or did you just dig into the bins?

    Look forward to seeing the tutorial you post!

    You did a fantastic job, it is a perfect pattern to "try" to empty the scrap bins. I keep making scrappy quilts and for some reason my pile seems to grow, I think there is a scrap monster in my bin that sneaks them in from other quilters bins.
