Only y'all would understand......

The hubs thinks I'm nuts.  But, that's a moot point.
My scrap box is busting at the seams.  I'm not normally a scrap keeper, but for some odd reason, I can't seem to throw anything away anymore (I draw the line at anything under 1'' strip, LOL).

So, yesterday, I took out the smaller pieces (minus anything that had pink), and have been sewing them together making new ''fabric''.  I am going to be cutting my centers for my scrappy Swoon quilt for the Swoonalong from this 'fabric'.  The bigger pieces of scraps in my bin I will save for the rest of the quilt.

I love that these small pieces will be of use.  I thought (briefly!) about making the whole quilt (except the background) from pieced 'fabric', but I'm not THAT crazy, LOL.  Or am I?.........  NO! hehe.  I am going to make this one entirely from the scrap bin though - except the background.  I haven't decided what I'm going to use for that yet.  I'm thinking about a newspaper print (which I'd have to order).  I have some white on white random dots in yardage, but I don't think I have quite enough :(  Anything I choose, I will have to buy unfortunately....

  1. Just yesterday I saw a blog post (sorry I don't remembere which one) where the quilter "made" fabric, then used fusible web and cut out hearts to applique on squares. They had a really cute crazy quilt look about them. Love your new fabric! And I AM impressed, I draw the line at 1.5 inches, LOL.
