HMQG Scrap Jar Challenge

This year the Houston Modern Quilt Guild started a new giveaway/challenge... the Scrap Jar.

HMQG Scrap Jar

This jar, which is STUFFED full of fabric, is passed around the guild each month. The person that "wins" the jar for the month has to make something (anything) from the fabrics. Whatever she makes is given to the next person that "wins" the jar.

So in July I won the jar and this cute pincushion made by the previous person.

And I pulled out a bunch of the blues to make this fun quilt-as-you-go dumpling (a free pattern from Michelle Patterns).

It was such a fun challenge! And now I want to make lots and lots more of those cute Dumpling Pouches.

What a really great idea. I love the dumpling pouch you made, it's just beautiful. I must have a go at making one myself.
