Quilty Fun Scrap Buster

Quilting fabric often has a secret life. Like the three big bags of scraps that have been growing under my bed for the past seven years. I though it was time to bust out the scraps and make something. Luck would have it that my friend Kim who blogs at told me about the "Quilty Fun" book by Lori Holt and a great Quilt-Along.

  • So I am quilting along in hopes of reducing my scrap pile to something a bit more manageable. The Quilt Along is in its third week and I am all caught up. Photos of  completed blocks can be posted on the Flickr Quilty Fun Sew Along site. And get this.... There's a drawing each week with prizes for the folks that post photos of their completed blocks . Now who doesn't love a chance to win a prize?

 So here's hoping that I win a prize before it is all over. If you think you might like this quilt-along check out the blog on You'll need Lori Holt's book too and can get it super fast from Fat Quarter Shop. Mine came in two days.

These are my completed blocks and the Quilty Fun book by Lori Holt.
