Scrap Happiness

Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict is hosting two fun projects.  The first one is her annual Hands 2 Help charity challenge.  Every year many quilts are made and given to wonderful charities.  You can even win prizes just for participating.  It is not to late to join so I hope you will consider joining.  The other project Sarah is hosting is I May Have A Scrap Problem.  I know I have lots of scraps and every year I participate in H2H charity challenge.  This year I am combine the two projects.  I found a scrap pattern called Scrap Happiness Squared by Linda Lehn.
                            This is my finished H2H quilt for Happy Chemo. 
This scrappy quilt used 108 - 4.5" squares and 540 - 2.5" squares but I still have lots of scraps.

I thought you would like an update on my 1.5" squares project.
I have used some of the 16 patch blocks in this quilt top.   It does feel good that these little squares have become a pretty quilt.  I still have many 16 patch blocks. I keep looking for another pattern to use them.

There are a few less scraps in my sewing room.

  3. I love scrap quilts, it's like getting something for free, or low cost. I used a lot of scraps in my Sugar and spice quilt, check out my blog post

    It has appliqué on it but the basic quilt is easy and straightforward. It may give you some ideas anyway.

  12. Oh, I love both of these scrappy pieces! You have a great eye for color.

    I just saw on Sarah's site that you are donating some goodies for H2H prizes. Thank you so much for being a sponsor!

    I live in a place where I have almost no access to guilds, classes, or quilt shops, so I really appreciate the online quilting community. Knowing that there are like-minded folks out there, ready to give something back to the world, makes me so happy.

  16. What a neat idea to combine the scrap project and the H2H project. I'm in the process of reorganizing my sewing stuff, and I know that I need to do something with my scraps. This looks like a fun pattern to help me get my "problem" under control.

  17. Well I am glad that there are a few less scraps in your sewing room...when I make a scrap quilt, and I've made several, the scraps just seem to multiply! I think they're like rabbits lol. Very pretty, both quilts.
