Design Wall Monday–Jan 14, 2013

I spent my t.v. time the past couple of days sorting and organizing some of my scraps.  There is still a large bin needing attention, but now I have some plastic shoe boxes with pre-cut strips and squares ready to be used.  

One of my goals for this year is to drastically reduce the amount of scraps I’ve collected.  In order to accomplish this I plan to add the making of a scrap quilt to each month’s agenda.  I also have a lot of fabrics in my stash that I’d like to use as well. 

The pattern I chose to do this month is a Mystery Quilt, “Bittersweet”, that was sponsored by Missouri Star Quilts on Quilters Club of America in March of 2012.  Yes, I’m a little late in getting started.  Anyway, this pattern calls for (628) 2-1/2” squares so it should give me a good start on my goal of using up those scraps.  So far, I have nine of the (24) 16-patch squares done.

I've also started collecting all my serger and fabric clippings as well as bits of batting which I plan to use as stuffing for a kitty bed.   Maybe I'll piece the bed cover and use up even more scraps!

I'm linked up with Patchwork Times, Design Wall Monday.  

Happy Quilting,

  1. I'm going to become a follower so I can watch your progress of using up those scraps. I too have way too many and have started a smilar project. I'm always working on string blocks because I'm way behind on cutting my scraps into squares!
