The Scrap Bins Runneth Over
January 7, 2011 § 32 Comments
While I’m busy working on some Electric Quilt lessons for classes that I will be teaching later this month (that means there isn’t a lot of sewing going on at the moment), I thought I could entice you all to think about your scraps.
There are several reasons I have scraps on my mind…. a) I recently picked up the special magazine issue of McCalls’ Quilting called America Loves Scrap Quilts 2010. It has some really good ideas for making scrap quilts… b) The Scrapbusters Challenge Flickr group is challenging… er encouraging… us to make more scrappy quilts in 2011… and c) I keep moving around my pile of liberated wedding ring blocks while working on other projects, when what I really want to do is make more blocks!
So… to kick off the New Year in scraps… I’m thinking we should have a give-away. This is a large flat-rate box full of flannel scraps. At least 6 pounds of scraps! Scraps leftover from one of my very first quilts made more than 13 years ago. Scraps from another flannel quilt made probably 10 years ago. Scraps from some pajamas & pillowcases made several years ago. I even made this flannel quilt for my brother-in-law from some of these scraps. But I swear the scraps multiple at night while I’m not looking. There still seems to be as many scraps leftover as when I started.
If you would like to win this box of scraps, please leave a comment telling me about your scrap adventures/plans/goals.
I’m sorry to say that I must limit the give-away to U.S. residents only as the international shipping rate is outrageous.
