WOW! I'm seeing some Gorgious pictures in here! Beautiful work, Ladies. I could so-o-o- snuggle up in those yummy creations!!

Last night i had an idea that I thought i might share. The lieklyhood of me ever getting around to this particular project is slim, but makybe some of you will like the notion...

WHAT IF (I do love that phrase) you were to take you scraps and turn them into yo-yos? In my minds eye I am seeing a perfectly darling handbag made out of scrappy yo-yos. MMMmmmm Yummy!

Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.

I like your scrappy quilt Wendy. I have a hard time with scraps too. My brain likes order. I'm making a scrappy DJ though. It's easy since each block only has 2 fabrics.

Joanne:

You know, I could never get into doing a scrap quilt, although I do keep them all.  What's the secret?  Do you just have to be a scrap fanatic?

I have only done a few scrap quilts but I really hate dealing with scraps...they are so messy...the scrap management system really keeps them organized and ready to make a variety of quilts....so I guess the answer to your question is "no" you don't have to be a scrap fanatic to make a scrap quilt.

Can you give a little more detail as to 'scrap management'.  Mine are just thrown in a large plastic tub - just in case I need a small piece of something . I   am really out of control.

There is a thread  called "A  Quilters Lumberyard" A Scrap Management System" filed in "Quiltmaking" on this site.

That thread explains the system and gives you a place to buy the one pattern that has been printed so far.  The last I knew "The Quilting Bee" in Yuma, AZ had the pattern with a 20% discount.  That pattern explains the system.

Wendy:  Love your split nine-patch using strip scraps.  Great use of light and dark.

The scrappy quilt is really nice.  Good use of color and light and dark.  I have done a couple scrappy quilts, but like the idea of the lumberyard management system.  I give most of my small scraps to a friend who uses everything.  She has made a postage stamp quilt and another that is just odds and ends sewn togeth - sew and flip style, then cut into 7" blocks.  The quilt is heavy because of all the thread, but really colorful and interesting.
