Scrap Basket Sunday

It was a last minute kind of thing... I had been trying to catch up on some blog reading and
I started reading a past post from Kim's Big Quilt Adventure.
She's starting a Scrap Basket Club?
I wanted to ignore it... as I had just made a promise to myself not to start something new!


Don't you hate it when you make those kind of promises?
It's one thing to think them but once you say it out loud...
you're kind of committed.
So on my last post I simply meant to do a shout out about
the club... but then I started thinking about a bag of scraps that
I unearthed earlier this month.
And thinking about a friend of mine, there was a quilt that she made that I am in love with
... which I posted about
recently also.
That's when I caved in.
I have this book, Scrappy Fireworks from Edyta Sitar.
I flip through it constantly.
So, yesterday I woke up and decided I was going to join in!
So I grabbed that bag of scraps and started cutting.



Here is my progress.
I made an even dozen of the 4 1/2" blocks.
Recently a quilt shop, In Between stitches, offered this quilt as a
block of the week. They would send out fabric every week, enough to
make 12 blocks. So, I'm kind of going with their plan.
In 10 weeks I will have the 120 blocks needed.
But since I obviously don't stick to the plans I make...
I might get it done faster.
Because there are more quilts in the book I want to make...
all with SCRAPS!

Thanks Kim for letting me join in!

I'm joining in, too. I must say that I forgot all about Edyta's books. I may have to flip through them when I get done with some other scrappy projects.

I figure that if you are using scraps, it's ok to start something new!! Edyta's books are perfect for using the scrap - sounds like you have a great plan there - I look forward to watching your piles grow. I've linked up to Kim too - a great idea, I think!!

I firmly believe that if you're making something with leftover scraps, you're not making something NEW! LOL! I'm glad you decided to take the plunge.

Uh oh! I see a scrap rehab in your future. I'm going over to check out the details of this one. I think I can scare up a few scraps. :-)
