I May Have A Scrap Problem.... Some Inspiration!


Hi, all!

Well, it's Wednesday night, the day before Thanksgiving, and I've been cooking all day.  Didn't think I'd have anything to share today, but as I glanced at Instagram in a down moment, I saw two pictures I just totally fell in love with!  And wonder of wonders, they are both scrappy and therefore perfect to share with you....

This first quilt was made by a local acquaintance who truly loves to make scrap quilts.  If you need inspiration, her Instagram feed is definitely the place to check out!  She calls this her Bitcoin quilt.  I've seen quilts made like this before, but wasn't too interested - until I saw this one.  For some reason all the color and movement just sings!  This will definitely be going on my list of quilts to make.  After all, I've got all those strings already cut out!

And our friend Emily, of Em's Scrap Bag, posted this beautiful picture - beautiful for both the quilt and for the sentiment!  Emily's blog is another great place for inspiration but this quilt was totally new to me. I'm already seeing lots of possibilities with this one!  

So that's all I have today - I'll try to do better next week!  Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, and if shopping is your thing, a safe and productive Black Friday and Small Business Saturday!




  1. Not so much Thanksgiving celebrations down here, but we do have so much to be thankful for. Blog friends, friends here, family, and the sunshine, blue skies, and fabric to choose from for the next bag I will make.

  2. The Bitcoin quilt is a Bonnie Hunter pattern called "Bitcoin".

  3. The Bitcoin quilts is brilliantly done to use the scraps.

  4. Here's hoping that you had a fabulous Thanksgiving, Sarah!!

  5. Good inspiration--it has been hard to spend hours in the sewing room with Thanksgiving plans!

  6. The BitCoin pattern is on sale this weekend on Bonnie Hunters blog page under her shop tab. You do need a code to get the 25% off and it's on all of her patterns not just this one!
