This thread will be to help you bust some scraps.  We will not count scraps into yardage, but by completed projects. At that time, you should be able to tell if you busted some scraps.  Personally I have lots of tubs, and I do mean the 50 gallon size tubs full of scraps.  Let us all be zealous to complete as many scrap quilts as possible! 

Make anything you want to make.  Google search for scrap quilts or scrap projects; Pintrest, several books, be creative.  I am sure you have a pattern or two for scrap projects and quilts.  If you find a good pattern, please share. There have been pot holders made (2), purses, slippers, mug rugs(4), quilts (1), placemats (4) etc. The choice is yours.  The purpose of this challenge is to use your scraps.  Crump blocks make wonderful pot holders.

You MUST use scraps.  A scrap size is no bigger than a 10” piece of fabric.  If you have a fat quarter, that is not a scrap. No, a layer cake is not a pile of scraps.  If you have a couple left from your layer cake, that is a scrap to me.

Report on your progress each step of the way.  This will encourage all of us to get on the ball and join in the cause of busting some scraps.

If you can, and only if you can, post photos of your progress.  If you can't post, don't fret please.  It is just for us visual people. 

Celebrate at the end of a completed quilt or project. 

There is no actual start date so you may join in during the year. 

You may use, only from your stash, up to 3 yards of a base fabric for your scrap quilt/project. 

If you only use scrap fabric for your quilt, you get an extra bonus entry for the prize.

Orphan blocks may be used with your scrap quilt/project. 

Your quilt(s) will need to be completed this year to qualify for a prize. Yes, there is a prize in the end. (Will be disclosed later) No, not more scraps. LOL.  Quilters who have completed a scrap quilt this year, will have their name put in a drawing, and at end of year, will pull out of the hat and announce.  Yes, you may do more than one, ten or even 30 if you so desire.

Scrappy is always a hit with me! Good thinking, Carla! 

I like how deep the tuck is on this.  Seems to hug the bowl more/better.

good job Carla, I like it

My phone is not nearly as smart as they said it was. It keeps writing my words wrong. Lololol.

It must be a common disease in smartphones...trying to “guess” what it is we are trying to say...often quite wrong,

Are you truly sure it is the phone?

Carla, I need to make some bowl cozies...I will have to try this.  Have a BIG bag of scarps.  Love the look of yours.

Thank you. I think they would be so cute done like a ''crazy bowl'' lol.

Well, since I want to work on smaller projects....guess I need to see some progress on finishes LOL...I want to stashbust my stash.  I am going to try and make a cozy using those scraps...they look cute with the mix.

I just have a "dumb" phone. Old flip phone and I like it, all I want is to make and receive calls. Wonder if it is an age thing or if I am just too lazy to want to learn new fangle stuff, lol

I like old stuff. It generally works better and longer than new stuff. Lol.
