2010 Sew Scraps Along ...with me?

I've been sewing a bit these days. I've started 3 new scrappy projects; all using my fabric scraps. Yesterday I shared one of my scrappy projects with you. It's my 2009 Scrappy Quilt.
Scrappy 2009 Quilt
And I teased you about my 2010 Scrappy Quilt. Plus there are 2 other projects I haven't shared yet and I have some things to share in regards to my Grandma's Flower Garden project too. ;o)

Here are my scraps. For me, anything less then a quarter of a yard and/or less then a fat quarter, goes into one of these bins by color.
Work Station
The bins and shelving came from Target. The bins come in Black or a Gray Metal finish. I spray painted the gray bins, white. There are 9 of them.

1. Red, 2. Oranges & Yellows, 3. Black & Grays, 4. White & Cream, 5. Green, 6. Blues & Purples, 7. Brown, 8. Pinks and 9. Halloween
{I'm saving all Halloweenish fabric scraps to make a Halloween string quilt someday}

Fabric Scraps

I would love to share my projects with you and show you how I use my scraps!
What say you?
Would you like to follow along?
Would you like to Sew some of your Scraps?

Would you like to Sew Scraps Along with Me?

How bout, 4 {maybe 5} easy peasy scrappy projects ?!

These won't be Start to Finish projects. But that's O.K. because I'll show you how I organize my scrappy projects.
{most scrappy projects are a work in progress for a while}. It's all super simple and you can do it too.

{I'll help ya get organized, and get ya started on the project. Then we'll move on to the next project. We'll do this like 4 or 5 times! Then you'll have FOUR or FIVE uberly cool Scrappy Projects to work on whenever you get the fancy to.}


Oh. And I say 4 maybe 5 because I might just cave and show you my 2010 Scrappy Quilt I'm working on.

If you're game and you want to participate in my Sew Scraps Along;

1. here's a button to blog about and/or put on your side bar.
Sew Scraps Along


p.s. if you need a smaller button for your sidebar, let me know.

2. Please RSVP in the form of a comment on this post. I would love to know who's going to be following and playing along. Oh! And please ask any questions you might have, so I'll be sure to answer them.

3. Gather your scraps together in one place. i.e. a Basket, Box, Bins, or a plain ol free brown paper garbage sack. Whatever works for you.

All done? K. Get ready for about 5 weeks of Scrappy Goodness! Not sure how many posts I'll publish each week. But each week I'll feature a different Scrappy project and some other good stuff too!

At the end of each week, we'll have a little Linky Party where you can share the start of your Scrappy projects!
Or your scraps. Or how you organize your scraps. Or a previous scrappy project you've done! All kinds of scrappy goodness!

Okey Dokey? Make a List and Check it Twice. Today's list includes 3 things to do {see the list above}. And we'll get this Sew Scraps Along party started!

Oh and you just might be interested to know that some of my bloggy friends are joining in the fun! And I hear they're cleaning out some of their scraps. Wonder what they'll do with all those scraps? Wonder if they'll throw them away? Or maybe they'll bury them in the bottom of their closet?

You know what would be really cool?... If they gave them away. hmmmmm... Perhaps I just dropped a really big hint. {tee hee}

TO KEEP UP TO DATE on all things related to the SEW SCRAPS ALONG, click on the link in my blog header labeled SEW SCRAPS! You'll find a list of all the POSTS related to the SCRAPS ALONG, Give Aways, and much more!

See ya around...

I can't wait to see what you've got. I am currently 7 blocks away from finishing a scrap string quilt (maybe I should call it my 2010 scrap quilt) and have lots of other scrap ideas floating around in my head. Let's compare notes... :)

sue said...

I've never done a scappy project, but would love to learn. Sounds like fun.

Kim's Treasures said...

My sewing machine is still in MI. I pick it up on Oct. 23. I will follow along in spirit and start mine late. How fun! Thanks for doing this!

Quilty Conscience said...

How fun! I'm in the middle of a "Block A Day", not as a group, just by myself of a scrappy project. I'm ready for more. This is a great idea. I wanna play! Toni

Regena@QuiltnQuiltthings said...

Hey Jodi
I have your button on my side bar
and scraps are ready to go
Thanks
Regena

trish said...

Oh yes Jodi!! Count me in! I can not wait to see what we will do and I can hardly wait to get started! Thanks a bunch for your scrap along. I am going to post your button on my side bar for sure and blog as we go along, about what we are doing. :o) The linky party will be so much fun, I always love to see what everyone has created!!
Have a super day and please (oh please!) don't keep us in too much suspense with your 2010 scrappy quilt! ;o)
BTW - I am loving all your Mary Engelbreit fabrics in your scrappy quilt!! :o) I ordered 1 yard of cherry fabric from Joann's and was thinking about you!! I would love that to go in our scrappy projects. :o)
Sincerely - Trish

Angie said...

This is going to sound sad but....I tried to add your botton to my blog but with no success. I love the idea though. Would love to try and follow along. :0)

Petit Design Co. said...

I'll definitely be following along, not sure how much I'll accomplish though!

joliesjunebugboutique said...

I love this idea! And I mean LOVE! So excited! I always see such cute scrappy projects but I can never seem to get into it! Maybe this will help me out!

Kim W said...

I think a scrappy project would be fun! I'll start gathering and make sure I've got scraps to work with.

Sherri said...

This is going to be a lot of fun...I'll be organizing scraps today!

blop said...

I would love to sew along!! I have my scraps organized by color too, so it should be fun!

Marci said...

This sounds great! Thanks so much!

Deep in the Heart of Happy said...

I would love to play, but unfortunately I have no scraps in which to play with. I gave all my fabric away before we made that stupid move to Texas and now I have to rebuild it all......I could just kick myself AND if I ever think to do it again, I hope someone else will kick me. Seriously. WHAT WAS I THINKING?

Quiltingdaisy said...

I'll be watching along for great ideas that I can use starting next year to work through my scraps. Right now I'm too busy trying to finish up this years projects and clean things up for the holidays and a fresh new year start.

Trisha said...

I love the look of scrappy quilts but can't seem to get myself motivated enough to make one. I am hoping you will be the motivation I need.

Michelle said...

This sounds like fun! count me in - I need to get back to quilting now that school is back in full swing and I have time.

Lori said...

I am very excited at the thought of using up some of the scraps that have been accumulating in the sewing room. Thanks for the inspiration!

Phannie said...

I am so excited about your Scrap Along. I am what you call a pretend quilter. I don't really know what I'm doing, but I pretend. I have a ton of scraps. Scraps I keep because every crafty person on the internet says that scraps can make wonderful projects. I don't know how to use my scraps, organize my scraps, or come up with a project to do. I don't really know how to pick colors either. This Scrap Along will be perfect for me. Thanks

Julie said...

+-count me in. I have plenty of scraps
thanks julie

Tracy J said...

I am very excited about this. I made each of my daughters a string scrappy quilt last year. but I SWEAR the big bucket of scraps grew...each time I used a strip, 3 more magically appeared. The scrap bin is apparently bottomless, so maybe this will help me shrink it up a little. Assuming they don't magically reproduce again during this event!!

Robin Hill Quilts~Eileen G. said...

L love the idea of yearly scrappy quilts! particularly if they turn out lovely like yours! lol! I poated your sidebar and am counting myself in!!
♥ E

Robin Hill Quilts~Eileen G. said...

actually I posted not poated....ha!

Sequana said...

(2nd try)

I have no blog, but I'm joining anyway. I have a flickr account I use to show my stuff.

I'm ahead of the game. My scraps are already sorted (pretty much) and sitting in a grocery bag here, just staring at me. I need a kick to get going.

Barb said...

I'm in!

Jen O said...

I'm totally up for scrappy projects. I'm getting sick of looking through the same scraps in my bin, but I could love them again in some cute projects...and this could be my Christmas gift-making jump start. Yay!

Millie said...

Jodi, I will defnitely following you along with the "Scraps Along". This will be so much fun. Can't wait to get started.

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

I would love to join you, and may. Right now I'm up to my neck with school projects. I'm posting your button and hoping to squeeze in time for scraps. Great idea Jodi! You know, I may be your biggest fan. I love everything you do so bring it on! ;D

Tammy Jones said...

I'm in too! What a great idea! :)

Ariane said...

I would love to join this sew along!!! I've been trying to just use my stash for a while now! I have a lot of scraps too!

Kathleen Grace said...

I will most certainly be following along. I don't know how much I'll get done (school and work darn it!)but I'm here to watch, learn and be inspired:>)

dquilts2004 said...

This is just the thing that I've been looking for as my scraps have been sorted and ready to go for a year or so! Let the projects begin!

Tina said...

It will be great to use up some scraps! Thank you for starting the challenge!

Sants said...

I usually give my scraps away to my more talented friends. I think I'll try this time.

Madame Samm said...

Karen

karen said...

Jodi, I will defnitely be following along with the "Scraps Along". Can't wait to get started!!

The Clip Cafe said...

Sounds like fun :-)

Brenda said...

I think i would love to play along or at least look at what you are doing. I don't have a lot of scraps so unless the scrap fairy smiles at me, I'll just be enjoying all the neat projects you are going to share.

di said...

Oh yeah! I am SO there! I have a big laundry basket full of scraps that need to desperately find a home. I can't wait for this! :-)

Janice said...

I'll sure be following along in spirit. Can't wait to see what everyone is going to do.

Dana said...

I would love to play along. I hope I can keep up! Seems here lately, my best laid plans for sewing have not worked out like I thought. Even if I can't keep up, I can't wait to see what you are going to share!!

Anonymous said...

Looking so forward to your post. Now if daughter and slow down with the preeclampsia!!!!! Baby due Nov. 22, but we are hoping for 2 weeks!

meri_drake said...

Yes, please! I'd love to play along! Scrappy is the best and I look forward to using up some of my scraps!

Terry said...

This is great! I love to use up scraps! I've added your button to my sidebar so count me in! And thanks! :0)

Deb said...

I definitely want to follow along and start using my scraps. They need organization so badly!! I love how you've organized your color bins. Please count me in, but i may need to wait a week before starting. And i'll put your button on my sidebar--I need to ask my daughter how to re-size. Thanks!

Tiffany said...

this sounds like so much fun! count me in!

Annette said...

I'd like to play for sure! The more I sew, the more my scraps seem to multiply. I could use some fresh ideas. Thanks.

Lori Holt said...

I'm in.
And it's gonna be a blast!!!
Thanks Jodi...from one scrapaholic to another...
xx
lori

VickiT said...

Oh how fun. I will most certainly be checking out all these projects. How fun. I only wish I had all the gorgeous scraps you have. Sadly, I have very few. Is it bad to just cut up fabric to make it into scraps? LOL

Rachel said...

Okay, I'm curious... and I have scraps. So, I'm going to try to play along, at least until other responsibilities take over.

Sounds like fun!

sewingseedscraftylife said...

Count me in...I may be a little late getting started but using up scraps sounds like a very good thing.

KarrieLyne said...

This definitely sounds like fun. I just don't know if I have "enough" scraps yet. Seriously...LOL! I will definitely keep my eyes out for this! :D

Renea said...

I would love to play along but don't have a blog. I may just follow and watch. Sounds like fun and I do love scrappy quilts. I have a string quilt sitting on my quilter just waiting to be quilted. Maybe I will get that done as I follow along.

EJ180 said...

I'd love to follow along. I have my scraps organized already. Just waiting for motivation to hit me. Hopefully you are it!

EJ180 said...

Oops, forgot to add I don't blog either.

Becky said...

In! And I am involved in a scrap swap so soon I shall have new pickins from jolly old England!!!

Gonna to my blog to put the button in the sidebar.

This is gonna be sooooooo much fun!

Thanks Jodi.

Sheri said...

Me???? I don't have any UFO's (snicker). Just why are you starting this when I have so many other projects to get done? Hmmmm......to join or not to join?

Darlene said...

YES!!

Candy said...

I already have some of my scraps ready. I am looking forward to see what you will be doing.

Peaceful Piecer said...

Count me in...I'm a new quilter, so hopefully I can keep up with you all. Thanks

Cheri said...

I have sooooo many scraps. I can't wait to play with all your great ideas!

Laura said...

I have your button added to my blog, my scraps all in one bag, and will keep up the best I can! I love having several scrap projects going at the side - it's too fun to end up with a quilt's worth of blocks without realizing how many I've made!

Kate said...

Sounds like fun. Love how you store your scraps! I did a scrappy 9 patch last year (er, except the 3 inches of binding i need to finish sewing on) and loved it.

I'd also be happy to giveaway a bag of scraps--I've got some fun stuff!

Libby said...

This sounds like so much fun!!! I love scrap quilts but I'm never sure of what to do with my scraps!! I am in a bad habit of making a quilt from one fabric line which is expensive and getting kinda boring! Thanks for doing this!
Libby

PunkiePie said...

Hmmmmm. Maybe I'll join too! I think I have a good pile of scraps going. Count me in!

Patchwork and Play said...

Hi Jodi- am I too late? I am playing along, but have been away! Can't wait to get started! Some many scraps, so little time!

Wendy said...

Hiya,
I might want to play along, but as a new sewist, I don't have very many scraps at the moment, I'm going to follow and see if there is anything I can join in with as I have a lot of charm squares...

gnee @ Singing With Birds said...

Hi Jodi,

It's Friday and your "Sew Scraps Along" made this week's Top 5 Hits. No only is your quilt adorable, but I wanted to help get the word out!

Hugs from Idaho!

Dorothy Thornton said...

I love scrappy projects and quilts. I have so many of them. Looking forward to sewing with you to manicure some of them.

Chris said...

I would love to join - but no blog. Not sure I have enough scraps. Thanks for doing this!

muffinandme said...

Love this idea and would DEFINITELY like the sew scraps along with you. Can't add the button yet as I don't have a blog yet but will be redressing that in the next few weeks so will do so then.

Peggy said...

I've never made a scrap quilt so this will be my first. I am ready to learn.

Gari said...

I'm going to try to sew along with you. I have one scrappy project going (strip squares) but stil have lots of scraps to work with. This will have to be done in conjunction with my Christmas gifts (2/3 done), 2 BOMs, 1 Christmas applique project, plus one new quilt. Oh, my!!

Cheryl said...

Okey, dokey! Ready to play. Looking forward to what you have in store for us! I have lots of scraps!

Christy said...

I'm a little late to the party, but I'm SOOOOO in! Can't wait!!

Ann T. said...

Hi Jodi,
I think I have fixed the e-mail problem. Thanks for pointing it out. I would love to join your "Sew Scraps Along" project. It will help me organize and get my scraps into a project or so.

Janet said...

Yes I'm keen, ready and waiting...

Karen said...

What a wonderful idea. I just love using up scraps although I'm sure they multiply when I put them away for a while. I am currently making the BOW on the Quilt Show and have only purchased background fabric, all the rest has come from my scraps. I looooove scrap quilts

Karen said...

Karen again I forgot to mention that I would love to have your button a bit smaller for my sidebar. I don't know how to make it smaller so need your help with this one. Many thanks

Kate said...

Hi! What a great idea! I can't wait to participate, and I LOVE the way you organize your scraps. Is the bookcase with your scrap bins also your cutting table? I may have to get myself one of those!

Chelley said...

free indeed said...

Yes, I want to make a quilt or two...am anxious to see what patterns you have for us. I may not begin till I see one that sings to me! :)

Mary said...

I'm in! I love scrappy projects! I have plenty of scraps, but it's always so interesting and fun to be able to use somebody else's scraps. I'm anxious to see what you have in store for us.

Briarside Lane said...

Hi Jodi... I am going to join in too! Made a post today and will put the button on my sidebar. Thanks so much! Karen

What a fun idea! I love your blog and can't wait to get started on thinning out my scrap pile. Thanks for the motivation!

Miranda said...

I would love to sew scrap along with you! unfortunately as I am still new to the quilting world, I don't have a lot of scraps so I'm not sure how many projects I'll get out of them!

Susan said...

Ok, I'm in! Got my tub of scaps, though they sure aren't organized:)

I can't wait to play along and see what kind of quilt you come up with!

Judy said...

I love scrap quilts!! This idea sounds wonderful. I am finishing a scrap flannel quilt. And I am using all the leftover flannel pieces to make the backing. I have added your button to my blog and I am ready to get started. Thanks!!

Ila said...

Mmm. Scrappy...

I might have to clean out some UFO boxes so I have room for more.

Shannon Hillinger said...

I would love to have new ideas for my scraps. I've made a couple of Log Cabin quilts and I'm working on a stripey one out of my scraps, but somehow I ended up with more scraps then when I started.

jednoiglec said...

I should definitely sort out a problem "scraps everywhere in the house" - I hope I'll find some tips to do it:)

Colleen said...

Im so excited to join you!

Janine B said...

This sounds just what I need to get kick-started into using my scraps. I don't have a blog but have a flickr account. Hope you'll let me play!!

luckymom said...

This sounds like such fun. I just finished up my daughter's baby shower so I've not done alot of sewing lately. This would be a great way to get back to it. Thanks again.

Debb said...

Sounds like fun... I'll try to follow along and hopefully be able to finish something pretty along the way.... thanks..

Needled Mom said...

Sounds like fun, Jodi. Count me in too.

Kasey said...

Count me in, please!!! I love my scraps so much... I'm getting ready to move, so the "organization" is going to change.... preferable onto shelves and off the kitchen floor... I'll have no excuse since my husband have already given me domain over the third bedroom of the house we're buying. :)
Hooray for pretty little scraps and all the memories they hold in such a small space.

Kelli said...

I just committed to the scrap vomit quilt at www.imagingermonkey.blogspot.com, so I'm not sure how many scraps I can possibly still have when I'm done cutting for that one, but for everything that's not 2.5" to be squared, I'm in! I'm all for reducing my stash so I can restock it!!!!

Miss White Wall said...

I am so excited for this. My scraps are not as diverse as they could be but I'm sure I'll have enough to get me started!

Carol A. said...

Count me in! I'd love to get rid of my fabric scraps. My husband has been asking me what I'm keeping them for and why I don't make quilts for birthday and Christmas gifts. I figure if I get rid of scraps, I can buy more fabric!

Cindy said...

Please count me in! Sounds like a lot of fun. Got your button and have my scraps gathered...the scraps aren't organized and pretty but they're together!

Becca said...

I am so excited for this! I have been collecting scraps on my table... and they just keep growing.

Lois said...

I love the "scrappy" look and have my scraps organized in just about the same categories as you have done. Sure makes it easier. I also save leftovers of binding in a basket and sew them together for scrappy bindings. I look forward to your ideas.

Charity said...

Is it too late to join in. There is nothing that I love more than scraps. Currently all of my scraps are in a tote of their own.

I can't wait to see all that you do with scraps.

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

Jodi, I'd like to join in if I am able. I had a back injury 8 weeks ago, and I've not started sewing yet, but I am getting better. So I'd like to try. Thanks.

Oh I totally want to do this. It's right up my alley. But I have a lot of deadlines right now. Don't know if I can fully participate, but I want to see what people are up to and I have recently just organized all of my fabric so I'll try to participate as much as I can. Great idea Jodi!

I am sooo excited about this sew along. Scrappy quilts are my favorites and I have so many scraps and don't seem to get them sewn into quilts. You are rescuing me and my sewing room. I have blogged about the sew along and am ready to get sewing. Thanks so much.

I'm excited! it's been so long since I've devoted time to my sewing machine and I miss it so! This sounds like an excellent opportunity to get it humming again!

this is awesome! can't wait to play along! my biggest problem is how to store and sort them. should i cut them into strips, squares, etc? or just save them by color? or both? i love your bins, might have to hit target tomorrow...

Well I love the looks of what you've done with your scraps. It's hard to imagine mine looking like something I'd want to keep, but I'll give it a try.

Sarah said...

I don't have an many scraps as you but I'm sure they would make into something useful. Please add me to the list! I can't wait.

Oh, I really need this! Motivations to actually do something with all those scaps is always helpful.

I'd love to join but not sure that I can keep up. What happens if I fall off the wagon? Beside embarassing myself.
