Joining in on Scraptastic!

Over on the She Can Quilt blog there is a Scraptastic event going on. Every month you can link to Scraptastic Tuesday-so I am linking for the first time ever to the December one I have lots of scraps to put to wonderful use for some donation quilts. I have finished a few flimsy's this month and lots more to work on. But why I need to join is I have a few tubs that look like this and I need to get them organized. So my plan is after Christmas I am going to pick 5 scrappy quilt patterns out and then start to cutting my scraps according to what I need for those 5.  Since not all quilts require the same size strips I am hoping by picking 5 patterns it won't be so overwhelming-well I can hope anyway, LOL    I am going to bribe a friend to come help me press and cut in exchange for some quilting!

Here is a UFO flimsy I finished up last week.

 This one I blogged about the process on Monday and now it is offically a 42 x 42" flimsy.

I really am hoping to join in the monthly Scraptastic in 2015!!  Wish me luck, haha.


  1. Beautiful flimsies Vicki and that does sound like a fun linky party! It is always great to use up scraps and.....keep them organized!

  2. Wow, the green just pops in your black and white quilt top. I love it. Funny, how we always seem to have so many scraps. Great use of yours.

  3. Looks like you do need us! Similar problems to Leanne and I and the reason we started this. Good luck with the five projects and we will be watching and learning I'm sure! Thanks for linking up with #scraptastictuesday!

  4. I love how you used up those triangles. Your tops are great! And I wish you the best with your scraps.

  5. Good luck! You have a great start.:)
