Scrap mania!

I’m taking my time and being very thorough with the sewing room set up.  Yesterday that meant a major scrap sort!


Pre Sort-

And post sort!

Post Sort

I’m not great about using my little scraps but maybe if they are sorted by color I will? In any case, I have more than I’ll ever use and should give some to you. Comment with your two favorite colors and I’ll pick a couple of winners on Monday.  A scrap pack will then be on it’s way to you!  Good luck and happy weekend to you all!

    I will let you pick. There isn’t a color I don’t like. How is that for easy? Tee Hee.

    Blues and Greens…but I’m not picky.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Green for sure. And pink comes in second place. Need me some scraps for new inspiration!

    The purple and yellows seem to call my name. I love your scraps! Thank you for posting!

    Fun! Love green and brown I think! Maybe pink? So hard to pick. ;0)

  6. Jill C. July 24, 2010 at 8:33 pm #

    Green and blue……. or maybe orange. Can’t decide! Thanks for sharing!!

    Orange and green are so doing it for me right now. I can’t seem to get
    away from them.

    I love red and green!! Thanks!

    Greens and yellows ones that I’m usually drawn to…however, I can never pass up a good black and white pattern.

    I love greens and browns! Scraps are great – you need to make some scrappy quilts! :-)

  11. Jody July 25, 2010 at 4:27 am #

    I’d have to say orange and pink are my favs as I have a little one who adores those colours! Happy organizing!!

  12. Sandy N. July 25, 2010 at 6:21 am #

    Wow, I really need (I mean NEED) to do this, too! I am drawn to the red and orange.

    I just bought my sewing machine in the beginning of July…I’m currently working on a Dresden plate! My stash of fabric at this point is minimal…I am particularly drawn to greens and browns…I’m an earthy type of girl!! :)

    Love the organized scraps! Although they don’t necessarily go well together, I love purple and brown! Thanks!

  15. erica July 25, 2010 at 6:36 am #

    Wow, you’ve got a lot of great scraps! I love the blues and greens best! Thanks for the giveaway :)

    In the middle of a paper pieced hexagon quilt so yellows and purples would be welcome!

    Hi Alissa,

    It’s Kim from your quilting class at Urban Craft Center. So far, I’ve made my kiddo two quilts. Still awaiting his arrival- mid August…and two quilts for friends. Thanks for helping me!
    ps- i like orange & brown!!!

    You are so inspirational to organize my scraps and fabric. Am waiting for the cooler weather though, since it’s the top floor of the townhouse. Then in the fall, I’ll say, oh, it’s a bit chilly up there…. I am my own Goldilocks. Great idea for your giveaway. I LOVE browns and creams….colors of chocolate and a good cup of mellow joe!

  19. Nanna July 25, 2010 at 12:51 pm #

    Greens and Blues. Thank you for blogging, love to drop by.

    Your Green and Orange scraps are quite lovely! Sorting scraps, perhaps I should do that…

  22. Heather G July 25, 2010 at 4:58 pm #

    I love yellows and neutrals!

  23. val miller July 25, 2010 at 6:09 pm #

    Fun!!! I am liking the brown and green.

  24. Elisa July 25, 2010 at 6:30 pm #

    Wow, I need to learn a thing or two about organization from you! I love greens and purples :)

  25. Sarah July 25, 2010 at 6:40 pm #

    green and blue!

  26. Jeanine July 25, 2010 at 7:14 pm #

    Oranges and browns make a great combo

  27. Laura July 25, 2010 at 7:58 pm #

    GREEN & BROWN! my whole house is only decorated in them…sad to say. but they are my fav, especially together!

  28. Barb July 25, 2010 at 8:11 pm #

    I have my scraps organized by colour now and I’m using them more than ever. Good luck with yours. I love blue and orange!

  29. Megan July 25, 2010 at 11:11 pm #

    Greens and oranges are lovely!

  30. kerry July 26, 2010 at 1:23 am #

    I love turquoise and orange x Mine are not so well organized!

  31. Teresa July 26, 2010 at 1:49 am #

    What a good idea to sort scraps by colour. They look much more enticing and I’m sure will help with inspiration. My favourite colours are brown and orange!

  32. Rose July 26, 2010 at 2:36 am #

    Scraps are so addictive once you get going with them! My faves are pink & grey.

  33. Sammie July 26, 2010 at 3:48 am #

    I’m currently working on my first quilt, a very scrappy string quilt made of all kinds of scavenged bits and pieces, and my workspace is covered with piles of scraps sorted by color. Even though they’re among my favorite colors, I’m low on greys/blacks and yellows right now, unfortunately!

  34. Briana July 26, 2010 at 7:00 am #

    brown and green are particularly appealing to me today. Thanks for the giveaway!

  35. Summer July 26, 2010 at 8:23 am #

    How generous of you! :) I love purple and red comes in second! :)

    Once I took the plunge and sorted all my scraps and had them out where I could see them at all times, their usefulness went up by a thousand percent. I use them all the time now because I can see what I have. My favorites are green and blue, and they are what I have the most of.
