Scrap Bustin'

Scrap Bustin' is one of my finishes so far this week. 
50 x 60 approx.
My scrap drawers are full of strings and crumbs but I also found partial Fat Quarters and thick strips in some bags laying around my sewing room. I decided to use more of the neutrals I had and cut them into 6" squares and then logged around them with random sized strips and then cut them up again and sew them back together in a cross type pattern. 


More scraps and an orphan block used up on the back along with the strange purple print fabric I had in my stash. 

I am so happy that I was able to bust out and use up a bunch of scraps but I will just admit that I have so so so many more scraps to use. How about you?

My new Babylock Jane!!! I love this baby so far. This is an industrial machine very similar to the Juki 2010. I love the fast speed and I love love love that it sews over different thickness and doesn't break the thread!  I bought this machine from a local dealer here in Lincoln at Sew Creative. If you are interested in knowing more about this machine call and talk to Paul he will hook you up. Really this machine is so wonderful. I actually quilted this one and a small crib quilt in the same day.

  2. This quilt is just gorgeous! I've been doing a bit of "scrap bustin'" myself lately. It's great to be able to use up every last bit of treasured fabric and have it last forever in a quilt.

  13. Good for you! What a lovely way to use up those scraps! I am always so impressed when I see beautiful quilts like this from people's scrap bins. I always assume that my scrap bins would never generate such lovely results!
