The Bags of Scraps

 Remember I told you about my Friend and her bag of scraps?

That is what the trunk of my car looked like!

I hit the jackpot!!!

When you get a windfall like this , what is the first thing you do?

So far the first thing I did was play in the browns.

See the design wall post from Monday

Then I remembered that RED was the RSC color for January - so I grabbed the Red bag.

and then!! I sorted thru and found the Patriotic colors

Those all went with my to my sew day - My Quilters HAD a BLAST playing with them!!

What would you do next?

PS - My Main Man - My main Squeeze says Hi!!!

And your friend had them sorted by color when she gave them to you, that's half the battle right there!!

What an awesome haul! I think I would open the bags and get them into clear ones so I could revel in the colors for a while until I figured out how to use all of them. SCRAPPY is THE BEST!

That is certainly a find! I love neutrals, so I think I would start there.

Wow! Exciting score of scraps! Sweet horse!

Glad you shared the wealth!

I would have been completely overwhelmed to have someone give me that much scraps! Glad it made you happy though, have fun stitching!

Lucky you!!! Although knowing you I am sure most o f those scraps will be turned into quilts and generously given away. Handsome Main Man!!! Bet he is a great ride (in addition to being a squeeze) as well :-D
