Scrappy Quilt Along?

How many of you have scraps?  OK, stupid question.  How many of you have scraps you want to use?

How about a Scrappy Quilt Along?  And we can make some fun things with the scraps.  I have 2 1/2 inch strips that will make a beautifully wonderful zig zag quilt.  Not that I need more quilt tops.

But I think we all need to get our 2 1/2 inchers out and do some zigs and zags.  How about it?

The Scrappy Bargello is still on my design wall, Dan and Amber's quilts are still on my chair to be quilted and the Neighborhood is still needing the extra block and quilting.  Then the Elephant quilt is needing its borders, but that is simple.  Maybe tomorrow if I feel better than I did today.

Sort of a zig zag
I thnk I might make that zig zag quilt and send it home with Patsy and Chuck after the cruise!  Yes.

Let me know if you are in for making your own Scrappy Zig Zag ( or controlled color, it doesn't need to be scrappy but use your stash stuff).  You can use dark and lights or complementing colors or all Kaffe fabrics.  Any which way you want to do it.  I am sure you will have more imagination than I do.

Are you in?



  1. I always need to bust some scraps! I only have three big bins full!

  2. Let's do it! Sounds less complicated than the quilt I am doing with DD. When are we starting?

  3. This sounds like fun! I just need to buy a background. Thanks for the idea. Always have wanted to make a zigzag quilt. I will work on it on my days off and commit to one hour each dayoff.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
