Scrap Vortex Progress

No automatic alt text available.

This is a picture of my Scrap Vortex quilt pieces, so far! I've had 3 sessions working out of my scrap bag. It doesn't look too good right now but I'm hoping it will improve as I make more progress.

This is a picture of my scraps after 2 sessions of playing with my scrap bag. I still have a lot of scraps to wade through. I'm sure once I continue, many of these larger pieces will be cut down or sewn together with other pieces to make a block.

The directions for week one are to put together pieces of like sized scraps. I think I'll be stuck on that first week for a little while. I would love to get rid of that scrap bag!  It's also fun to see what your scraps will look like when they're all thrown in together! Fun process so far!

  2. Your building blocks are coming out really well. I think my scraps multiply overnight--even when I use them--when I open the baskets they are STILL overflowing somehow--strange. ;000 I try to do a semi-controlled scrap melange mostly...like picking 3 or four colors and having dark and light versions of them...hugs, Julierose

    1. Thanks, Julierose! Not sure what this will look like but I'll do anything to use up those scraps! They do seem to multiply all by themselves!!

    1. I think I've let mine accumulate for too long. I've got to do something to control them!

  4. Looks like fun! Scraps quilts are some of my favourites! I tend to keep mine as they have bits of fabric from so many projects, they're like a fabric photo album! :)

Slab Runner Quilted

Here's my slab table runner. I'm enjoying the process of sewing down the binding. It's a great excuse to watch television! ...
