I May Have A Scrap Problem... Inspiration!


Hi, all!

It's been a busy week around here, with not much time for scrap sewing.  With a full roster of t-shirt quilt orders, I'm making hay while the sun shines and knocking them out as quickly as I can!  Today one of my customers sent me a picture of her daughter with her new quilt...

And that's why I love making memory quilts!  It's wonderful to see people react to a tangible, useful recollection of their treasured items.  

That being said, I haven't had much time for scrap sewing (although I've been making a lot of scraps!) but I did find some really cool inspiration on Instagram this week.....

Look at all those wonderful tiny scrappy houses and trees!  I cannot imagine the work that went into this, but I sure can appreciate it!

And look at all that glorious color!!  I definitely need to find out if there's a pattern for this one...

Isn't this one fun?  It's made of shirt fabric!  Such a great way to repurpose those old shirts.  Men's shirts show wear at collar and cuffs, but usually the rest of the fabric is still in pretty good shape - and there's a LOT of fabric in an XL man's shirt!

But this quilt is my favorite of the week.  I love a snail's trail block, but I've never seen a quilt made of scrappy snail's trails - isn't it wonderful?  This one is definitely going on my bucket list!

That's all I've got this week, but hopefully I'll be able to do some personal sewing soon - I just have to decide which project to work on!

Go forth and conquer those scraps!




  1. Those are some very colorful quilts! Snails Trail is also on my list of someday quilts to be made but so many quilts, so little time. Happy stitching!

  2. That is one happy quilt recipient! As for that second picture, I'm thinking I read recently that it's in the process of becoming a pattern, and she has a really cool design called "Everything Goes" that's fun.

  3. Scrappy sewing is always fun. Keeping track of scrappy is not sew fun.

  4. Oh, it's nice to touch people's lives through our quilts!

  5. Love, love, LOVE that recipient reaction, Sarah!!

  6. 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:
