It was brought to my attention earlier this week that I missed my Wednesday "I May Have A Scrap Problem" post - oops! It's been so busy here, and Tuesday night, by the time I sat down on my sofa to write the post, I just fell asleep! Then Wednesday I hit the ground running and completely forgot I still needed to do a post.
But today I was looking through some pics on my phone - actually, Emmy was looking at them... she's fascinated with pics of herself and will go back through months of photos to find herself! Anyway, I spotted some pics that I had forgotten to share, and as they are right up a scrappy alley, they're perfect for a little bonus "I May Have a Scrap Problem" post! So grab a cuppa and enjoy!
Back in June, I received an unexpected package in the mail. I love surprises, and this one was a doozy! When I opened it, I found this note on the top...
Mina, who blogs over at Kinda Quilty, sent this wonderful note (a definite encouragement to me!) along with some fabulous scrappy quilt tops for the quilt ministry!
Take a look at this wonderful quilt, which would use up lots of tiny scraps! Here's a detail shot so you can see it better...
Just think of all those tiny bits you can't bear to part with - they could be part of a quilt like this!
And how about this lovely scrappy rainbow? Now that would make a dent in those tubs of scraps...
Here's a great design if you have lots of strips, or I think you can also do it with 10" squares cross cut into fourths and alternated with white strips!
I think this is such an interesting quilt - I could look at it all day! There are lots of orphan blocks in there, and such a feel of improv - definitely one-of-a-kind!
And finally, my favorite - a whole city full of scrappy houses! These are so cheerful in their bright happy saturated colors - it makes me smile every time I see it!
Mina definitely knocked it out of the park with these quilt tops - and now I have so many new ideas for how to use my scraps!
How about you?
Thanks again, Mina!
This Wednesday is the last Wednesday in August (how in the WORLD did that happen?) so it will be time for another linky party to show off your scrappy progress for the month. I hope you'll join me - and I promise to remember to write the post this week! See you then!
