A mythical creature and a scrappy Quilt-Along!

If the Scrap Rabbit  ( distant cousin of the Easter Bunny, kind of a black sheep of the Bunny clan)leaves a basket full of lovely fabric bits on your front step what would you do!?!



I know what I would do...HOP on over to the Scrappy Stash Quilt-Along

Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts  is having a Scrappy Quilt-Along with all the treasures that the Scrap Rabbit left you or the little gifts you make yourself :o)

I know when my basket overflows with love I do to keep it somewhat under control :o)


I enlist the hands of young worker bees that can be bribed with ice cream, icarly or itunes...the i's seem to be popular in this house...

I sort out the user friendly pieces

The larger pieces go into shoe boxes

the smaller ones go into Ball jars ( thank you amylouwho...I LOVE YOU)


The MOST important thing I try to do OFTEN is share with friends!!!!!! I have had some pretty amazing swaps or sent some outta love...

Get your scrap together and HOP on over to Ellison Lane Quilts  to check out some of the very cool sponsors




and if you missed out on sneak peeks at other scrap stashes ( you know you want to) here is the list

Those jars of fabric goodness look amazing. It is good to see them all in front of you as the ideas start to form when you daydream about different combinations of colour and pattern.

No amount of bribery would entice my 17 and 20 year olds to help! Looks like I'm on my own!

Oh mine like to tip them out, not so keen on the sorting and putting them all back though!

Wendy said...

so organised! I love the look of the scraps in jars

Bribery fails in this house, not even the magic 'I' Works these days! Best send the gunnysacks helpers they could be here for a while!

You've intriqued me... what the heck do you do with all the smaller ones that go into your Ball jars? I desperately need to know as I bin all mine!!! (Gasp - horror - hangs my head in shame!!!)
