Scrap Busted

 I told you in a previous post I had been sewing up a storm ? 
Here's some of the things I made. 
 I was on a mission to use up my scraps..... 
Then one day I had this great idea, so I called my friend Nancy. 
"Hey Nancy, you want to come over and help me and sew some baby quilts ?"
So, sew we did....that day she and I made 60 string blocks. We had a great time ! 


 Over the next couple of months I worked on my scrap stash of squares that were anywhere from 3" to 6" and 2 1/2" strips along with those "ODD" ones we all have. 
I wound up with 36 baby quilts, 5 bed runners and two table toppers. 
Some baby quilts are for charity and some are to sell. 
These pictures are from my booth at our guild's quilt show this past weekend.     

 I did manage to get rid of most of scrap stash....and let me tell you.....
 "IT FELT WONDERFUL"
Now I'll buy more fabric and start a new scrap stash !   
Invite a friend to come sew, it's fun quality time well spent !
Until next time,
God Bless you !

You did an amazing job at sticking with sewing up your scraps and have a wonderful pile of quilts and runners made. It must feel so good to have accomplished using up those scraps, with the excitement of creating a new fabric stash as the reward. I have to confess.... I give my scraps away!

Wow! What a great fete! They all look so impressive hanging together. I've been stimming on scraps, too, but using up all those little pieces that are so difficult to throw away from my summer sewing. I've been making zippered pouches. My goal is 12 before I leave and I'm up to 11. Honestly, though, zippered pouches don't make much of a dent ! Have fun replenishing your stash!
