Lots of Scraps

It is dark and dreary outside today.  So I had to take my photos inside.  The colours are actually brighter than in the photos.  I will post another photo when it is done.

You'd think my scrap bin would be going down, but no!  It seems to be growing and I have even been leaving the lights on at night.  The good thing is that I have been able to get a lot of things constructed.

Here is my Scrappy Squares quilt.  It's a flimsy right now, but I plan to quilt it soon.  It's in line.   I have a couple of quilts that are ahead of it. 


I have also been working on a Crosses quilt.  Wanda from Exuberant Color has been making one and I just couldn't resist.  It uses 2 1/2 inch strips and I have lots of those.  This is about 1/4 of the quilt.  I made myself a small design wall.  It's not big enough, but I think it will work if I do a quarter of the quilt at a time.

Both are looking awesome. I like the strips you used for the border. I may have to borrow that idea!!
Cheers,

I sure do like that scrappy squares flimsy. Very nice. I think you should turn out your lights at night so the scraps cannot find the pile. :-0

We could all give away our yardage stashes and have plenty of scraps to keep us going for years, LOL! Or maybe we should give away our scraps and start cutting into yardage??
You have a good start on the crosses.

Good-looking quilts, Hetty! Keep up the good work. (And I don't understand how my scraps never seem to lessen, either!!!)

What a lot to catch up on. You had a very busy summer! I love all the things you made, the lovely bags and the scrap quilts look great.
Your kitchen turned out very well. It is beautiful and has so much storing space. Can't wait to see your stained glass pannels.
