Cut the Scraps!

Thanks to everyone who is following along! And Thanks to everyone who posted about the Sew Scraps Along on your blog! It's been a fun first week!

I wanted to share a book with you today. I just received it this week and I'm loving it!

Have you heard of it? Do you have it?

There are 20 irresistible Scrappy Projects in this book! Some super great tips for sewing with your scraps. AND how to organize them too.
Cut the Scraps

Joan organizes her scraps just a little bit different than I do. I'm seriously thinking of giving it a try. She offers step-by-step instructions for cutting your scrap fabric stash down to size and ready to quilt! mmmm. Definitely something to think about.

The quilt on the front cover of the book is what sold me right off. It's totally going in my inspiration file and on my "To Sew" list.

Two other quilts going on my "To Sew" list are the Something Fishy quilt and Bloomin Steps. I really love the scrappiness of both these...

Cut the Scraps
Something Fishy

Bloomin Steps

You can find the book on Amazon



Happy Scrappy Sewing! ooxx`jodi

I have enjoyed the first week of your Sew Scraps Along. It has been fun and informational. I can't wait to see the tutorial for the mug mats. They are just too cute!

I love the fishy scrap quilt. Might have to get that book too.
I have posted and liked your page on facebook, but do not have a Twitter account.
Keep the ideas coming. I will settle on one soon, as I have finished 3 tops and have another one almost complete, so my scrap piles have grown again.

Beth said...

I "liked" Pleasant Home on Facebook. That book looks like something I could drool over. I love reading your blog.

Kim said...

This book looks great! I love that fish quilt. I am really enjoying the scrap quilts. I will be back later to do the other stuff!

I posted on my FB page about Pleasant Home! I really am enjoying Sew Scraps Along! I have been cutting up scraps like crazy! LOL The sad thing is, I need more to be able to make these awesome projects you have shown! And, since it has been a few years since I did any quilting--I am finding that the colors in my stash aren't as appealing to me now! :(

I wanted to comment and tell you that my 26 year old son gave me Cut the Scraps book for Christmas!!!! How did he pick that out all by himself??!! I'll have to tell him he did a great job...it was the first time I'd heard of it and now you're recommending it. I've had a chance to thumb through it and really like it, too!!! Thanks for the Scrap-Along.

Katrina said...

Deonn @ Quiltscapes said...

Hi! It was so nice to come up on your blog, wonder how I ever missed it?? Everything you do speaks to me in some way. Love your style. I'm still trying to figure out mine. I "Liked" Pleasant Home on FB both on my home page and my Quiltscapes page. Thanks for this fun campaign to organize/sew with scraps - I'm ready! Got my studio all cleaned up, scraps bagged and binned, now my next step is to begin to cut them into useable pieces, and I found you! Can't wait to get started. Gotta get organized - so many things I want to do, and just added another passion to the mix (singing with THE big choir, you know the one, I believe too.) Thanks for all you do.

Vickie said...

I liked you on Facebook, but forgot to leave you a comment. Love the blog postings so far. Great ideas.

Very inspiring posts - I am joining in to stash bust and use up very old scraps (think vintage as they belonged to my late Nanna) very excited to actually be using my fabric rather than looking at it ;)
