Scrap Happy's have been a little silent lately with all the other projects going on.  I hope to get a new project in the works sometime after the first of the year.  I would like to have input from all the scrap quilt lovers as to what type of project you would like to do.  We could do something using the Lumberyard system or another from Quiltville or anything else that anyone has a desire to do.  Please give some suggestions and I will work on getting something going.

Nana, using something using the Lumberyard system sounds like a good idea. I have been very lax about cutting my leftover scraps so that might be the incentive I need to get in the habit. In the end, after I got over the stress lol, I loved the Bag Quilt and am even keeping it for me! So another Bag type quilt would be fun as well. I am trying to get caught up with some UFOs so I can be ready for the new projects that are coming. My name is Pat, I have the quilter's disease, ROFLOL!

You finish your Boxy Stars and have fun doing it.  If you are ready for another project by the time I get this one going you can join us on it as well.

I am with you, finally finished my boxy stars.  Had to it is a gift for one my daughters for Christmas.  Decided this year all 3 were going to get quilts for Christmas,  what a stressful decision that was.  Putting the border on the last one this evening so I can send it out to a long arm quilter.  Will show pictures when I get it back.

Can I sit on the fence a bit before I commit? I'd like to do the lumberyard, too b/c just like Pat with the quilting disease, I am not faithfully cutting scraps either. I've been throwing them in the basket under the cutting table.

Which leads me to sitting on the fence b/c I have so many nice UFO's that I want to finish but I want to do a scrappy, MQ#4, anything QAYG, The Farmer Sampler, Gini's blocks that she sent, Birthday Blocks, too. I've got two commissioned quilts to do. I think a hive just popped out of my head......I don't really get hives. :o}

Nana,

I am going to be working on Bonnie Hunter's current mystery quilt "Roll Roll Cotton Boll". I think Carol is working on it as well. I'm in the fabric selection process.

Bonnie also has a new quilt up called "Christmas Lights" it's really pretty. Great way to use scraps with a controlled component. Click here to see it.

Diane,

We really must meet.  I'm always telling people that I'm getting a rash over things that bug me.  Hives/rash same thing.

The Roll Roll Cotton Boll is a mystery quilt isn't it.   Could we use the steps in the group and do the project as a group project?.....  Maybe.....

Nana, that would be a great idea - it will use up stash, and she always has good directions, I think (I may be just a little prejudiced, I really like her stuff!~) I have already started on this one, it sure looks like fun to me.  Also, Kris, I did the Christmas Lights when it apeared in the Quiltmaker magazine,  and so did my friend - they both turned out great, it's a pattern I also recommend.  But like I said, Is there any quilt we don't like?  Also, the lumberyard system is a good one, too, any thing we do with scraps, I like!!  LOL

The first scrappy project we did in Scrap Happys was Boxy Stars from Quiltville.  I love her stuff too.

Yes, I know, I made two of them, and they are now quilted, waiting for bindings!

I'm seriously considering doing Christmas Lights this spring after I finish a few projects.  It would be a good one too.
