Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
This thread will be to help you bust some scraps. We will not count scraps into yardage, but by completed projects. At that time, you should be able to tell if you busted some scraps. Personally I have lots of tubs, and I do mean the 50 gallon size tubs full of scraps. Let us all be zealous to complete as many scrap quilts as possible!
Make anything you want to make. Google search for scrap quilts or scrap projects; Pintrest, several books, be creative. I am sure you have a pattern or two for scrap projects and quilts. If you find a good pattern, please share. There have been pot holders made (2), purses, slippers, mug rugs(4), quilts (1), placemats (4) etc. The choice is yours. The purpose of this challenge is to use your scraps. Crump blocks make wonderful pot holders.
You MUST use scraps. A scrap size is no bigger than a 10” piece of fabric. If you have a fat quarter, that is not a scrap. No, a layer cake is not a pile of scraps. If you have a couple left from your layer cake, that is a scrap to me.
Report on your progress each step of the way. This will encourage all of us to get on the ball and join in the cause of busting some scraps.
If you can, and only if you can, post photos of your progress. If you can't post, don't fret please. It is just for us visual people.
Celebrate at the end of a completed quilt or project.
There is no actual start date so you may join in during the year.
You may use, only from your stash, up to 3 yards of a base fabric for your scrap quilt/project.
If you only use scrap fabric for your quilt, you get an extra bonus entry for the prize.
Orphan blocks may be used with your scrap quilt/project.
Your quilt(s) will need to be completed this year to qualify for a prize. Yes, there is a prize in the end. (Will be disclosed later) No, not more scraps. LOL. Quilters who have completed a scrap quilt this year, will have their name put in a drawing, and at end of year, will pull out of the hat and announce. Yes, you may do more than one, ten or even 30 if you so desire.

Where's the LIKE / LOVE buttons ??? hahahaha This is awesome :)
Thank you, Dee!
Just adorable, Riana! Your gr'daughter did a great job on her embroidery! Love the shadow quilted bananas with the monkey!
Working on this and will get caught up here.
Going thru "stuff" and found a template for a braid quilt. That ought to us up some scraps for sure. I have a lot of patriotic fabric. That should make a great quilt for one of the Grandsons.
Riana, what a talented grand daughter, that makes it so much more special.
I have everyone's last entries in. Will have a drawing here shortly, be on your toes. LOL
I have some ready for next year. LOL
I am in for this year. Last year turned out to be a bad year for our family and myself but, this year will be great. I am using up lots o scraps using them to make hexagons. I have used up most of my thirties scraps for a grandmothers flower garden. I have loads of other scraps for more hexagons in a more modern looking quilt. Also found a pattern for a braid quilt with the template in the package with the pattern. All great scrap projects. Got lots of UFOs in the works, but, that's another group' some of it may overlap and that's fine. Mostly this year will be getting things done and using up what I have on hand. Well there is those two BOMs that I signed up for, but it's only two blocks a month and that will give me something new to look forward to when I'm working on all the other stuff.
