I May Have A Scrap Problem... Bringing In The Season, Scrappy!

Hi, all!

Well, the holiday season has arrived, and with it more things to do than there are hours in the day!  So I haven't had time to do any scrappy sewing this week, but I did find some wonderful scrappy inspiration on Instagram, all of it designed to ring in the holiday season.....

A beautiful triple Irish chain in Christmas colors...

One of my favorite versions of the snowflake quilt that is floating around the internet these days!  I love the scrappy red background!

This quilt and the next are made by the same pattern, and both are scrappy, but what a difference color choices and borders make!  I'd be hard-pressed to choose my favorite between them...

Isn't it amazing what you can create just using simple patchwork and half-square triangles?  This wreath is so fresh looking, and I love that it appears to be all scrappy!

And last, but certainly not least, some really cute holly blocks!  

And now I want to go play in my scraps again... but it will have to wait until I get past some Christmas obligations!  If you have time, play some for me, ok?




  1. I love them all too! The are all on my ever growing list.

  2. I love all these ideas, maybe I'll try one if my mojo comes back soon. My fur baby is having health issues and that seems to have zapped my creative energy :-(

  3. I really like the snowflake quilt! It would look good with all kinds of blues in the background, too, and I have more of those than red! lol

  4. Oh wow, Sarah!! Thanks for all the scrappy holiday inspiration. Those quilts really make me want to go SEW... Right now!!!

  5. Scrappy is the best, isn't it? The more I quilt, the more I love scraps. Time to pull out my scrappy holiday quilt from last year :)

  6. Great examples of scrappy. And better yet small squares. Right now my 2” squares are overflowing.

  7. Sarah, thank you for the feature. This quilt has been so much fun to put together and has done a lot of travelling. The fabric was cut in Nova Scotia, the top was sewn in Seattle, then it travelled to Florida before returning home to Nova Scotia. Merry Christmas!

  8. Great way to use scraps !! I too have lots of blue scraps that I think would be good for snowflake, please, could I have the pattern? Happy scrapping!!
