Well, a new year means a fresh start - and new goals! I had so much fun last year with this series, and I did accomplish a lot as a result of it. But I've still got a ridiculous amount of scraps, so I need to make some goals for the year to help get rid of some of them, too. Here's what I'm hoping to do this year, scrap-wise...
Scrappy Quilts for the Stunning Stars Quilt-Along
I'm planning six different quilts for the Stunning Stars Quilt-Along (January 29-March 5) and I want to make at least four of them using scraps from my stash. I think this is feasible, and a great example to set for charity quilting!
Using my Latitude Scraps
Remember this lovely pile of scraps that Kate Spain sent me from her Latitude line of batiks? Well, I really want to use it to make this great quilt designed by Rachel Hauser - isn't it gorgeous?
Do Someone A Solid!
I have a growing stash of solid Kona scraps that I want to turn into a quilt - I'm still searching for a pattern, but there's a great quilt in that tub just waiting to see the light of day!
Continue the Great Scrap Bin Organization
Those scraps under my long arm frame are still there - and secretly, in the dark, I think they are multiplying! So the end goal is still to sort through all those tubs and turn them into usable pieces of fabric. I'd like to get to at least a tub every two months, pressing, folding and cutting - that would make a great dent in the stash!
That's not nearly a comprehensive list, but it is a good start for the year. Are you planning any great scrappy incursions this year? Tell me about it in the comments below - that way we can cheer each other on!
