  • I figured out what to do with my long skinny Scraps!

    I was cutting strips for a quilt . The fabric store usually gives you 1/2 inch extra, or a little more if you are lucky. My daughter is always collecting up my scraps and playing with them.

  • Re: QCA Member Tip Contest - Post Your Entries Here

    January 2011 Tip Contest Winner! Instead of using just any scraps of fabric for your leaders and enders, use your 'scrap' pieces. If you have some 2 or 3 inch squares already cut up for your scrap quilt, use those pieces as leaders and enders while chain piecing. You'll be sewing two quilts...
