I Love Scraps!

I've had my heart set on making a scrap quilt for some time now... the memories in each piece... using up the final little pieces of treasured fabrics... finding a use for those "what was I thinking" fabric pieces... I love it all!!

I never thought I had enough scraps to actually make a whole quilt, but earlier this year I pulled my scraps from various bags, bins, and totes and color sorted them... holy scraps... that's a lot of scraps!

So what's a scrap lovin' girl to do... why make one of Katy's Scrap Vomit quilts of course!!

This was the last thing I finished piecing in 2011 (with a couple of hours to spare even).

Scrap Vomit


It's a little big (70" x 98") so I think I'll send it out to be quilted. Looking forward to having this one to snuggle under soon!
