Scrap-tastic Tuesday

Leanne and Nicky host a Scrap-tastic Tuesday, Angela hosts the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and I am trying to follow both!  I have SO many scraps... I just can't throw them away!!!   So I am reading the blogs, reading the tutorials - and... I still have scraps lol

Last Months RSC color was purple - so I grabbed my purple bin and just started cutting and trimming and making usable sizes.... My goal - make a block from the Galaxy Quilt pattern from Jaybird Quilts.

And I did.... And I still have scraps.... So my tip of the month?  Share the wealth!!!

So here is the block I made.... and I might have cut enough to make a block or 3 more just like it. New techniques require Lots of practice from me you know!

here;s the book - just in case you are wondering what a finished quilt might look like
I predict I won't have one finished for a LOOOOONG time and didn't want you holding your breath!

This is what is left in that little purple bin....
I did not know so much could be made out of one tiny bin

So.... do you want this?
If so, say YES in the comments - If there is more than one - 
I will draw a number and you can cut this till your heart s content!

Oh!! And over at Scrap Tastic Tuesday - you do a link up once a month
And they draw for cool gifts
I got a gift card to http://madaboutpatchwork.com/
and got to go shopping!!!!

Yay me!!
I even have a project in mind - for a child of mine....

If your interested in some more scraps 
I have listed some in my Etsy store too

Ha good plan to give away your bounty! Great block and hope that quilt doesn't take as long as you fear! I don't need any more scraps but I'm sure there are lots who do. Thank you for linking up to #scraptastictuesday

Yes please!!! I love scraps and always welcome more. I love the Gravity quilt and I have a feeling yours will be gorgeous in all its scrappy goodness.

Yes, I would be interested in your scraps. My scraps could use some more variety. Thanks for the chance!

YES! I am working on a scrappy hexagon Eye Spy and could definitely use some more purples in it. Thank you so much for offering it up. Phyllis ptl1957@hotmail.com

I knew I had a lot of scraps. Then I moved all my sewing stuff into one room and found 3 big tubs of scraps that I forgot about. I need to make a scrap quilt quick!

VickiT said...

Yes! I'd love to have those scraps. My favorite color is purple so I'd be nuts not to at least try.

Thank you for the chance

I would love some purple scraps! I'm working on two scrap quilts - they need more contrasting colors :)

Beautiful block. I'm actually in really good shape on purple scraps, but yours certainly are pretty.
