I May Have A Scrap Problem... And A Time Problem!

Hi, all!

Well, once again I have not had time to do any scrappy sewing this week - but I don't feel too bad about that, because Instagram and Pinterest have been FULL of some fabulous inspiration that I really want to share with you!

First off, let's see what Instagram has to share...

Look at this fabulous string quilt Meredith made!!  And I have a feeling that wouldn't even make a dent in my strings...

And Meredith was really on a roll this week - look at this fabulous scrappy creation!  I believe she said she made it with 1800 2" x 3.5" rectangles - that's a lot of scraps!

Tracy, a fellow Middle Tennessee resident, was totally inspiring me  with her rainbow scrap challenge blocks and tops this week!  Solid scraps always abound at my place, but I don't think I could do anything as gorgeous as this!

This one, though, I think I could do!  Now to go dig through the solid scraps and see what I've got...

But first, maybe we should have a little heart - or a big one!  This quilt makes me so happy, not in the least because it would be so simple to make with stuff I have on hand....

And now let's turn to Pinterest - another treasure trove this week!

These two quilts have much in common, yet each has its own fabulous flavor!  Lots of little pieces - scrap buster score!!

 And finally, how about this fun triangle quilt?  I am pretty sure this one can be built on the kaleidoscope block pattern I used for the 12 Days of Christmas in July quilt.  Isn't it amazing how different color placement can change a block?  I want to make a whole quilt like this!  I love the vintage look it has.

Inspired?  Me too!  Let's go forth and conquer those scraps!!




  1. The two scrap beauties of Meredith makes my scrappy heart sing. I saw them on IG also.

  2. WOW! Love the quilt in the last picture and the vintage look this quilt has. Love every thing about it. Yep! This one goes on my to-do-ever-so-long-list. ;^)

  3. That first string quilt went right into my inspo file! The angles in the center just make my heart sing :)

  4. The solids are beautiful quilts, aren't they?!

  5. Wow!! Now I have THREE new with I want to start. Right now!!!

  6. Lovely group of inspirational quilts!
