I May Have A Scrap Problem... But Here's a Great Solution!


Hi, all!

There has been a serious lack of scrappy sewing around here lately, but it doesn't mean that I'm not looking for future projects!  You may remember the Scrap Mountain quilt and quilt-along that happened last year on Instagram...

Joy Martin at @themakingsofjoy designed this fabulous pattern, and I have to say it is one of the most creatively produced patterns I've ever seen.  It's fun to read and beautiful to look at - not your average pattern!  I can't wait to make my own version (although it ain't gonna happen any time soon, unfortunately!)

Well, Joy has been at it again, and has just released her second pattern!  

This one is called Pride and Prejudice, and while her cover version doesn't look super-scrappy...

...take a look at this scrappy version one of her testers made!  Isn't that fun?  And maybe you're looking at this quilt and considering your scrap stash with a different eye?  

Go forth and conquer those scraps!!




  1. I was looking for some blue batik today, and surprised to find that in the scrap containers, I did not have enough to do " Daddy Hex" from Becca over at Scraps are son valuable for quilts like those in your photos, and I do have mine sorted in like colours.

    1. Scraps are so valuable, oops for the word " son" fingers type ahead of my brain!!!

  2. What great inspiration photos! I really like the new pattern Joy has released!

  3. Goes to prove, simple blocks (when made with scraps) make great quilts. Thanks for sharing. ;^)

  4. A new-to-me quilter with fun patterns? Thanks for sharing!

  5. These are stunning.The blue one is my best fav

  6. Wow! What a neat quilt. I'll have to go check it out. Thanks for sharing.

  7. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for ,my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website:
