Back To The Scraps

in quilts, Scrap Organizing

First off – don’t forget tomorrow early evening the give away for the 3 patterns to 3 winners ends.  Go to this link and leave a comment on that post.

Last night I decided to sit at the Sew-Ezi table and get in some cutting of scraps.  There wasn’t much to watch on tv so I just put some old NCIS shows on – I have already seen them and do not need to watch every move they make – something for the background noise.

I think I had box #3 on the table when I decided to empty some boxes in the wicker basket so I can not longer tell you how many boxes have been gone through.  What I can say is that whatever had been dumped out on the table (I believe it was #3) I finished with last night.

When I got done with them, this is what I had – 5 inch blocks, 4 inch blocks, 3 1/2, 3, 2 1/2 and 2 and lots of little 1 1/2 inch blocks.


I am going to try to continue working on scraps at least several times each week – but chances are it will be well into summer and I will not be done with project.

Some have asked do I have any projects planned with the scraps?  Not yet  — I think I want to see what I have before I decide. This will make it much easier though to finish off the Pineapple Square quilt.  With all these pieces to go through I can easily make a round robin type of quilt.

Last night when I finished the scraps that had been on my table I got them all organized in their boxes and then went into the living room to settle in on the couch and work on circles on Joseph’s Coat.  I got a good amount done and I will show a photo of the quilt later today – maybe I will take it outside and lay it on the ground to get a photo -

Isn’t it fun to see all those little blocks? I finished my scraps last week, then my husband suggested i make a quilt for his cousin who is homebound. Off to the scrap blocks! What a great feeling to have precut squares to grab and go. Cutting is my least favorite part of quilting. Keep it up, it’s so liberating to have those scraps organized!

I’m with ya on the “NCIS thing”. Had it on last night, also, and for the same. reason. Had my blue, monster prom dress I needed to finish, so I put the TV to something that I have seen numerous times and could ‘tune in/out’ as needed. Continue to watch your progress with fascination! Sometimes I think/know that if I didn’t have a blog accountability (of some type of forward movement!) I wouldn’t get near as much done. Having said that, I had better get to the hand sewing on that blue pile of fluff so it can truck out the door…soon! Tonight is no sewing but a concert in La Crosse,WI,….Trans Siberian Orchestra. They put on one spectacular show: fab music, laser lights, pyrotechnics….the whole “nine yards”! Hugs, Doreen
