Scrappy Stash QAL {or Scrap HAPPY}

Jennifer at Ellison Lane Quilts has put together a Scrappy Stash QAL for all of us that LOVE scrappy quilts ( ME! ME! ME!) or for those of us that just have too many scraps and don't know what to do with them but put them in a pile...in the corner...and watch them mulitply ( ME! ME! ME!) I hope you will all join in on the fun of sewing with your scrappy stash! We're going to be digging into those scrap bins and putting those precious pieces you've been hanging on to, to use. It's about time, right?! 

So, first things first: go sort those scraps! Over the next week, you're going to have sneak peeks into scrap organization from a slew of talented quilting bloggers. Take notes, pin ideas, just get busy. 

You are going to need your scraps sorted by color. We're going to be sewing fast and loose- no measuring, nothing exact. Freedom and liberation while we dig into those scrap bins. 

What kind of scraps get to play? Well, anything 2" x 2" and larger. We'll be using strips of fabric in widths 1.5" - 2". 

What are we making? Monochromatic Improv Log Cabins! 

Ready to sew? Good! The QAL kicks off on October 9 with giveaways, special sales, discounts and all the details to get you started. 

Sponsors: 
The many prizes offered to those of you that join our quilt-along are graciously donated by the following sponsors.

Oceano 2. 16. As a result, for the Straight To You shows,Groban will continue to interact with the audience and perform favorites from his best-selling albums, including his self-titled debut, "Closer," "Awake" and "Illuminations." I've loved them from the moment I heard Paul Simon's Graceland."
