Doing the Purge

the Purge Rachel over at Stitched in Color here  has gotten me motivated to do some much needed "purging" of my sewing stash. I have scraps that keep multiplying no matter what I do it seems.

I have completed two rows of QAYG strips. 6 more to go to make the scrap herringbone quilt.  See tutorial here by Maureen Cracknell.

Bonus...I have scraps of batting to use up too.

So project #1 is well underway. I hope to get this done in time to donate it to the Quilts of Compassion drive. They are gathering quilts along with my Omaha Modern Quilt group to supply quilts to Pilger and Beaver Crossing towns which were hit by tornados this year.  Link to this finish is here

Here are the first two I made in this style before I knew that scraps multiply on their own and that these were not even a blip on the radar of my scrap stash! :)


  1. Ooooo love the diamond! The colors work really well, especially being from scraps!

  2. This is another quilt I want to try! I like both of these but the diamond is really neat!

  3. I love your Herringbone quilt as you go quilts!!
