Houston trip scraps

I have a scrappy problem!  I can’t stop buying little bags of scraps!  But, I love sorting and cutting scraps, so I’m happy!


Our trip to Houston was organized by Sew Great Tours and I highly recommend you get on the next bus!  We had a fabulous time, made new friends and saw some wonderful sights in addition to Festival.  Yes, we did stop at a few quilt shops on the way, too!



The quilt show was incredible!  Lots and lots of quilting eye candy.  Here’s a link to the winners.

Paducah or Sisters, Oregon?  What’s next?

Thanks!  🙂 Linda


Design Wall Monday – What a Pile of Scraps!

Design Wall Monday – What a Pile of Scraps!

scraps from haley


Okay, it’s a design pile of future quilts!

I love that my 10 year old granddaughter, Haley, knows me so well that she’d give me a big bag of scraps she got at a garage sale.  And I love that when Haley  told the seller she was buying them for her grandma, she gave them to her for free!  What a great birthday present!


After all the company was gone, I enjoyed my quiet time sorting and ironing the scraps!  Here’s my sorting process.  sorted scraps

1.  Pieced remnants for Mile a Minute project

2.  1 1/2″ strips for Trash to Treasure Pineapple quilt

3.  Small strips and pieces to be cut into 2″ and 2 1/2″ charm squares for PSQ quilts and swaps

4.  Large pieces sorted by light, mediums and blacks

5.  Bright strips for string pieced Tummy Time quits

6.  Batik strips and pieces

Because I’m a scrap quilter, these fabrics will be used!   Most of the fabric is quilt shop quality fabric, too!  Haley did a great job!

This week is a Houston warm up!  It starts with a small group quilting retreat in Des Moines and the AQS quilt show.  Stay tuned for updates!

Thanks!  Linda 🙂
