starting a scrap quilt

I love a stack of handmade quilts.
I'm, particularly, in love with this stack.


Quilts are comfortable, welcoming, and a little bit country.


I want a stack of my own.


I have a lot of scrap fabric left over from previous sewing projects; some of it was even passed down to me from my grandma.  I've always dreamed about making a scrap fabric quilt...on a whim, yesterday, I decided to start one.

It may take me months to finish it...lets set next Spring as my deadline, m'kay?
It's going to make a perfect picnic blanket once that last stitch is sewn.
I'm pretty excited to watch it come together.

Do you have loads of scrap fabric sitting around?
Do you have plans for it?
Or do you like to keep it as an "emergency" stash?  


  1. Oh Allison how exciting! I can't wait to see your beautiful quilt come together :o)

  2. I need to do the same!!!! I think mine will have a simple pattern....squares maybe, LOL? Maybe I can start it after some other projects are taken care of first...and finally bust through my stash!!!!
