Scraps



The dictionary defines the word "scraps" as follows:


–noun
1.
a small piece or portion; fragment

For a quilter it can mean just the piece of fabric you needed to add that pop to your quilt. I use scraps alot since I do so much applique. A small corner can yield several leaves.

However, my scraps are taking over! Moda sends me layer cakes to design with pretty regularly and there is always something left over. At this rate I will never use it all. I have this basket of newer fabric scraps up for grabs. Some pieces are small, some are a whole 10" square. There is Blackbird Designs- Wild Rose and Antique Fair. Tons of French General as I work with those lines quite a bit. Some Buttercup by Fig Tree. You get the idea. If anyone out there would like to have this basket of scraps, (basket not included) leave me a comment and I will send them your way. If by chance more than one of you wants them- I will draw a name next Mon. 28.


I pulled some of it out to give a look at what is in the middle.

Happy Quilting, Dawn

  26. Well surely toss me in that drawing! Scrappy and Applique are my favorite types of quilts so the scrap bin is most handy!

    You just never know when you will find the perfect little piece of fabric in that scrap bin. That could be why I just can't turn loose of any piece of fabric. I even save DHs cotton shirts and cut them up for the fabric!
