I May Have A Scrap Problem... Your Daily Dose of Inspiration!

Hi, all!

Well, if you saw my post from Monday, you know that I haven't had much sewing time in the past week!  But I have had a little bit of time to haunt Instagram and find some new inspiration for us - so that's what we've got today!  Take a look at these beauties...

I am SO in love with Wendy's mid-century modern piece - I really want to dig in my solid scraps and see what I can find to make one like it!  

And aren't these bowls amazing?  I couldn't find a pattern or tutorial, but I think I could figure this out with a little trial and error.

The sheer scrappiness of this quilt makes my heart happy!  I love the repeating elements of the star and the hourglass block.

Wouldn't this make a beautiful Christmas quilt?  I may start making red and white nine-patches in anticipation of next year...

And this one pleases my soul on so many levels!  I love the colors, the arrows, the movement of it, and yes, of course, the scrappiness!


I hope you've found something to inspire yourself in one of these beauties.  I'll try to do better by next week and get back to sewing - I really miss it.  My poor sewing machine doesn't recognize me!




  1. Wow, so many pretty quilts and bowls. I am going to check some of them out more for sure. Hope you have more time for sewing this week. With the holidays coming, everything seems to be rushed.

  2. indeed sarah...the red/green burgoyne surrounded block caught my eye immediately...have seen it before and it always makes my fingers itch!

  3. I need to cut out some fabric for another quilt! These ideas are pretty-especially the last one!

  4. Oh, Sarah, thanks for the highlight! I had a blast making my Mod Peels, so I hope you give it a go. Those fabric bowls are so cute! Love that star in the center. I've been watching your kitchen progress; it's a ton of work but the finish is so rewarding, right!?!

  5. If those quilted baskets are as big as they look, I'm making one right now and can recommend the tutorial at BubzRugz blog. I've made quite a few of them. They are a no fuss way to use up some scraps!

  6. Yes, they were inspiring. Thanks for sharing. Hope you find time to sew what you want to.

  7. If you do figure out how to make those bowls, would you put a tutorial together or brief instructions? I wrapped clothesline with 1/2" fabric and stitched it into a small dish, but wasn't pleased with the results. I think these bowls would work much better as a gift.

  8. Anyone is stunnung.The bowls and the reds nine patch one my best favorite.Thanks for sharing.

  9. I contacted the source of the fabric bowls and found their tutorial and fabric choices:
