    WOW...I'm in. I just found this thread and it is fabulous. Since this is the second year I joined the Fabric Mortatorium, this should be fun as well as a challenge. Love it, Love it, Love it. Thank you "quiltmaker 101" for this wonderful idea and to encourage us to stretch our imagination.
    Added Note: yahoo...page 101 and the 1001 post.

    I had some scrap fabric left over from making baby quilts. So this week I took the scraps and made 3 more baby quilts and still had enought to make a doll quilt as seen in Picture #1.

    Scrap quilt challenge

    After I finished the 3 baby quilts, I still had more small scraps and this is what I did with them:

    I made 2 burp clothes from left over flannel

    The small pile of scraps will be saved for our scrap dive at our quilt show

    The large pile of scraps will go into the yellow pillow to make a bed for a kitty or puppy at the shelter for them to sleep on while they are there and also to take home with them when they go to their new home.

    All my scraps go into making doggy and kitty blankets for the animal shelter downtown. I get rid of the nuisance pieces and the animals get a nice cozy bed. It's a win win.

    I just love getting to use every scrap of fabric by making puppy bags. I feel like I waste nothing and like you say the puppies & kitties get something warm. It is diffently a win! win!

    Here's a leader/ender scrap quilt I did at my daughter's house while I was there for 3 weeks May '11. Scraps & stash only! I am doing the UFO challenge also, so this was one of the 2 that I posted in that challenge too. I am vowing to get lots of UFO's finished this year...alot of them are scrap quilt tops or tablerunners. So will work on them all while working on other things too. I actually love how this one came together...just pulled colors I liked together in 2 1/2" squares & (4 1/2" squares & sashing came from stash). Backing/binding from stash, too.

    This is my lastest quilt made from scraps: The Cut-up (www.piecedtreepatterns.com) I used left over fabric to make this quilt (front & back). This quilt will be donated to Hospice to auction off at their annual ball.

    Doggie Bags

    Here are 6 more bags to go to the puppy pound for the littles one to have a bed. Most of the scraps are donated by our quilt club members. The outsides are made from wonder fabric (wonder what I was thinking when I bought this).

    That quilt is smashing!! Never have i seen this pattern before. Did you make it up or is it a pattern that you found? I really like it a lot!! (I guess you could tell that!)

    i like scrappy quilts. always on the lookout for new pattens to try. I save all my scraps as the tops I make from them and taken to my church group to be tie knotted and bound for nursing homes, homeless shelters and crisis nurseries. i have been working on reducing scraps out of my Rubbermaid bin that i use just for scraps. A couple months ago I took all the strips left over from sashings, bindings,and end of rotary cut strips. I pieced them together into 8" x 10" blocks. was going to alternate with plain blocks but had so many strips left I doubled the number of blocks i did and made twin size quilt of those string blocks. I have made 3-4 scrap quilts since--still bin is overflowing. the scraps multiply worse than bunnies on fertility drugs. but I will still keep stitching.

    I'm in as long as I won't be flogged if I can't get it done by Christmas.
    A quilt is a hug for future generations.

    Thanks.

    I'm wondering too! I have been soooo good for 2 yrs to NOT buy anymore fabric! But here & there if something is really cheap, its gone. Such as: found 5 yds of a pretty pink for $2 at a thrift store! Seems like the stacks don't go down very fast.... I need to tell my kids what to do with my STUFF when I pass. They'll have no clue.,,,,
