Scraps, scraps, scraps......

I have a massive bag of scraps that I just can't bring 
myself to throw out, I love every little bit, all those wonderful
fabrics, colors, patterns, just way too nice to waste.
So a scrappy quilt......
I love scrappy quilt & its time I made one.
Sorted the bits into colorways as best I could & got started.

I love it, fun, fun, fun.....yep sewing is fun!!!!!!
I'm gonna love this as a quilt

I predict lots of sewing, crazy bad weather so I need mega amounts of 
cheering up, bless that sewing machine of mine, she a peach!!!
Have a sweet evening
Lots of love Karen xxxxxxx


  1. I agree with you...what fun! The heat has me in front of my machine as well. I think I know just the scraps to make me a scrappy quilt, too.

  2. Girl, where do you find the time for all these projects? But I'm so glad you do, for I so enjoy everyone of them you post! Keep up the great work, wait - keep up the fun!!

  6. Those look wonderful!!! I love a scrappy quilt too. I hate to throw any of it away when I am sewing. I keep baskets near by to toss the small pieces into, and I sort them by color. I am sorry your weather is ugly. But at least you have your sewing!!!
