when life gives you scraps...make a quilt!
I hope your daughter's wedding went well. I'm a bit jealous of your lovely weather! Quiltmaker magazine is a fabulous way to get the latest patterns. We at the scrap squad, of course, make all kinds of quilts from a wide variety of patterns. But we will be highlighting a specific Quiltmaker pattern from every magazine. I find the magazine a great resource with both easy and challenging quilts.
Our latest project looks impressive, but is incredibly easy to make. Stay tuned to see more!
Hi everyone, I definitely subscribe to the Quiltmaker Magazine. It is my favorite. I do a lot of scrapy pieces but usually of my own design. I am from Arizona in a town with a small quilt shop. I used to live in TN where there were several quilt shops close by. Now i have to travel 3 hours to a large shop. OH well, it is lots of fun!!! I am looking forward to see what others are doing and the color schemes being used. My wish list contains a longarm machine. I am placing hints all over the house for the holiday season!!!
I would love to join this group but I can't seem to find any current discussions
i found y'all while looking at the different groups on the QCA site! As I have enough scraps to open a scrap store, I knew that this was perfect for me! M
i am Judi Reiss and I live in beautiful Bucks County, PA. We are located about 35-40 minutes NE of Philly on I-95 right at the Delaware River. I love saving scraps and am thrilled to know that I am not alone. I used to save anything that was 2 1/2 inches square, but since I discovered that I live making miniature quilts, I save almost everything.
PI am hoping to get ideas and patterns to bust my scrap stash. Something must be done as I am running out of space. I also old like ideas on how you organize your scraps. Color or size or both?
I live in Iowa and find scrap quilting is the best. I have been searching for a Quiltmaker magazine quilt pattern from july/aug 2009 magazine called " Thirty something scrappy quilt" for about five months now and have not been able to find it. I saw it in a quilting show and would love to make it. . A person from my church said to go on line to the QM scrap squad and maybe someone had a copy they could email me. So I joined and this is a great site. So many different things to see and learn. Still looking for this pattern and I hope someone had it. Great to be a member
I don't have the pattern but you can buy a digital version of it for $4.99.
My name is Sheri. I'm really happy to be here. I have quilted briefly in the '80s. Stopped due to a few difficult life events and recently got started again. I became rejuvenated because of modern quilt designs and fabric. I'm obsessed with Derse and Dubrawsky designs. I work as an ER nurse and have two grown sons.
