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!

    Your oranges and reds look lovely! I don’t know how you can bear to let go of such pretty goods, but I wouldn’t complain to be on the recipient end of such treasures….

    Ha ha this is great! I love how you organized them by color. I love greens and blues, and have some ideas for scrappy quilts. Thanks for sharing!

    Oo thanks for sharing! I’d have to say those pinks and greens are calling to me! Crossing my fingers :)

  4. Amber July 23, 2010 at 5:39 pm #

    Greens and pinks… quite fabulous!

  5. Amanda R. July 23, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    How exciting! I think the red/pinkish group looks fun or the greens.
    Thank you.

    Orange! And Purple. Patchy potholders, perhaps? Love them!

  7. Amy July 23, 2010 at 5:44 pm #

    I love scraps. I prefer working with scraps over large pieces even! I’d honestly be happy with any of the colors. Thanks for the chance!

    I know it’s all about the orange for you…..I’ve told you my childhood aversion to orange, what with Holly Hobbie’s orange haired friend bedroom decor and an orange-rust shag rug. So I guess it would have to be blue & green for me (I’d say purple but I am pretty sure you have no purple).

  9. Andi July 23, 2010 at 6:18 pm #

    Pink and red for me please!!!

  10. rebecca July 23, 2010 at 6:18 pm #

    I love greens and orange or greens and browns. I love to make scrap quilts so this is such a great idea. I hope you pick me!

  14. Munaiba July 23, 2010 at 7:42 pm #

    My favourites are purples and turquoises. It’s interesting that everyone seems to be sorting scraps these days. It must be infectious!

  15. Jackie July 23, 2010 at 7:47 pm #

    I’m in a pink and orange mood these days when it comes to gathering fabrics.

    Congratulations on sorting through your scraps. Being really thorough as you unpack will take more time but you’ll really be happy that you did it.

  16. Carrie L July 23, 2010 at 7:49 pm #

    Blues and oranges!

  17. Bryanna July 23, 2010 at 8:03 pm #

  24. Angie July 23, 2010 at 8:47 pm #

    My scraps are not so nice and organized, yours look so much better! I would say blue (aqua) and brown. I have two projects that could use some scraps in those colors! Someone will be so happy to get some of your lovelies!

  25. anne July 23, 2010 at 9:06 pm #

    Wow what a great way to organize your scraps. I like the browns and greens. Thank you for sharing

  26. Andrea July 23, 2010 at 9:11 pm #

    Orange is my new fav color…but the brown is intriguing too…trying to expand outside my usual color scheme these days!

  27. kat castaldi July 23, 2010 at 9:43 pm #

    Wow… I love your scraps. Of course they are just snippets from all your gorgeous quilts! The browns are really calling my name. I think that the reds would be quite lovely with them.

  28. Linda July 24, 2010 at 12:26 am #

    Great organisation! Love the brighter pinks(are some people saying they’re orange!) & the greens.

  29. Alexis July 24, 2010 at 12:50 am #

    Unfortunately I’m “taking my time” sorting out whole house after moving nearly a month ago!! Just finished the study for hubby’s return. Loving scraps, and would love to add to my collection! I’m on a blue boy vibe at the moment (even though I’m expecting another girl – and should probably be making a pink quilt for her.

  42. Kait July 24, 2010 at 6:52 am #

    Yay! I love scrap swaps, what better way to improve my stash? There are ideas swirling for what to make… I’d say green and purple would be my color picks. I’m not crazy about purple but I’m trying :)

  48. Meg July 24, 2010 at 10:46 am #

    I’m currently really into aqua and brown together, especially for “guy” quilts. Your scraps look fab!

  49. izzy inspired July 24, 2010 at 11:23 am #
