Scrap Bags.....

Wow, I think we are all being very busy this month. Emily’s Wedding quilt is coming along nicely. It is basted and I have started to hand quilt. I love how it looks. I am afraid my posts will be sparse for awhile as I want to devote all my extra time to her quilt.
I have however started a daunting task!!
As many of you know I love scraps. I love that what someone thinks is a scrap could be a treasure. Therefore, if I like scraps; I thought you might like them too!! I have a ton; yes a ton, of end of bolts pieces of fabric. I keep saving them for a rainy day; but realistically I have enough to last a lifetime. It is time to share. I have made scrap bags for my eBay and etsy shops.
I started out with my black and white fabrics, they have been ironed, cut and sorted into piles for you to purchase. These are pictures of an actually scrap bag, some fabrics may vary. Each scrap bag will contain one fat quarter.
The next challenge will be my 1930 prints, many, many, bins!!
But for now please take a peek at my eBay or etsy store and start scrapping!!
Here is an example………

I hope you come, take a peek and shop for some scraps!! It is amazing what you can do with them!!


  1. you really are scrapping it......good luck with the sales...and with your wedding quilt....can't wait to see it totally done!!

  2. Isn't it amazing what we can amass? How wonderful it must feel working on a project of love. Looking forward to seeing the completed quilt.

  3. Scraps are the best! You never know what might become of them.

  4. Can't wait to see the wedding quilt.
    Great idea for your scraps.

  5. I'm intrigued with Emily's wedding quilt... can't wait! I couldn't believe how many scraps I've accumulated in such a short time ^_^

  6. I love scraps! And probably have enough for 2 lifetimes! :-o If I actually bought scraps my hubby would probably be calling the guys with those little white jackets with the extra long sleeves! :-o LOL Good luck finding new homes for them! ;-)

  7. (heehee) Why did you have to go and do this? I am trying so hard to de-stash!!! [more whining and general grumbling mumbling]

    Seriously, tis cool. I will go look. A quick look won't hurt, will it?


I always love to hear your thoughts!
