Scrap Happy!

I mentioned a few days ago that I'm cutting up scraps into little pieces for a new project. Here is the start of it. I was inspired by a quilt I saw called Scrap Happy #3 by Kathy MacCleary. Go to the link and scroll down to find it.

There is no pattern - I cut up scraps into tiny rectangle that finish at 1" x2". I also cut some squares that finish at 1". Like the inspiration quilt, I'm turning mine on point. There is no right or wrong way to do this...I just keep adding pieces randomly. Yes, the Christmas m&ms and the Easter chicks have made their way into this!

I'm hand piecing this - I know, a bit crazy. But these pieces go together very quickly and I like having this by my recliner for evening stitching.

Yes, it snowed! We think we have about 1.5 inches. We also got sleet, so the roads are icy. We will enjoy it from INSIDE except for taking the doggies out. By the way, Cooper LOVES the snow!

Have a great day!


  1. That's going to be a great quilt. Thanks for the link. It was fun to see all those scrappy marvels.

  2. I love scraps. And your project looks great.
