I May Have A Scrap Problem...

Hi, all!

I will confess, I haven't had much time this week to work with my scraps - Hands2Help has been taking almost all my available time - but I did have a chance to finish the flying geese blocks for the Long Time Gone quilt that I had only started last week...


And see that plastic jar in the back?  It's got a bunch of bonus HSTs left over from the making of these three blocks - won't they be fun to play with?  And here's a few ideas that would be great for them....


This quilt is the creation of P., who blogs over at The Way I Sew It - I absolutely love it!  You could use any size HST for this!


And this one - so simple, but just gorgeous!  A great way to use up scraps.....

And now for some scrappy inspiration that I ran across this week...





Is this not the cutest I-Spy ever?

Hopefully by next week, I'll have carved out some time to work on my Long Time Gone quilt - I don't want to lose momentum on it!  So tell me - what are you working on to help tame your scrap monster?

Hugs!

Sarah

  1. Inspiration indeed!!! Those HST make that quilt really stand out with the colour changes, and a cat's face just there, delightful.Thanks for sharing those.

  2. Not much going on here although I did manage to get the binding on the top of one of the ministry quilts but still have to do the hand work. I also pulled out a UFO and sewed a little bit on it. I'm going to try to work on it as I have time. Happy Stitching!

  3. I really love that first quilt in the scrappy inspiration list, I think part of the reason is I see it using up so many scraps.

  4. Ha! What a hoot to see my flimsy, Sarah. I should send you a better quality jpeg than the FB version. Anyway, thanks for brightening my day with all the scrappy goodness. I may actually get around to blogging about that today, lol.

  10. I'm finishing some blocks to send Cynthia who is guest quilting for CIL this month and working on swap blocks for a group challenge making wonky log cabin blocks. But I really must also get out in the garden while we enjoy a few days without rain or heat.

  13. It amazes me how different scrap quilts can look. Lots of inspiration here. Perhaps the most fun is little kitty keeping an eye out for scrap quilts.
