Scrap Basket Sunday

Kim, at Kim's Big Quilting Adventure, is hosting a Scrap Basket Sunday.  Every Sunday we can link our posts to her blog and share with each other what we are making from our scraps. 

The first thing I thought of were my watermelons that I showed you on my design wall HERE.  Although it's been almost a year ago since I started making them, I still haven't finished, which isn't unsual for me! 

Kim asked us today what our deffinition of a scrap is.  My deffinition is anything that I have left over from a quilt project, or anything less than a fat quarter.  These reds are left over from a heart quilt that is still in a UFO box, and my scraps of Civil War prints.  I have my half square triangles sewn together, and maybe I will get the chance to square them up today to be sewn into cute little shoo fly blocks. 

There are several other quilters who are sharing what is in their scrap basket today.  You can see them HERE at Kim's blog. 

By the way... what is your deffintion of a scrap? 

Have a great day! 



  1. Sounds like a good description of scraps to me. My situation in life is different, I'm retired and home a lot due to my husband's health issues, so I start and finish quite a few things. I probably should slow down a bit and concentrate on learning different techniques and such though.

  2. PS I love your header. You have made some beautiful quilts and it shows that you have many varied interests. Also, thank you for your visit to my blog and your sweet comment.

  3. I like your definition of scrap. I think I would have to say the same. Can't wait to see those little hst's all put together. That's going to be great! Have fun with it!

  4. I had seen those watermelon blocks on your blog before--I'm glad you've decided to get back to them because they look like a great project! I'll look forward to watching it progress.
