I know what you are thinking. Man, I have to clean up my sewing room. I should really sort all these scraps. How on Earth did I get all these scraps? I can’t throw this scrap away, sure, it’s only 2.5″ square. But I might NEED it. And this is good fabric! I can’t just TOSS IT OUT! No! I will keep it for a project one day.
Today is that day! Well, okay, not today. But how about January 12th, 2012? Does that work for you? Hey, that’s not the first of the year! Shouldn’t we be starting then? Maybe. BUT January 12th is a magical day! It’s my birthday! (And, this gives us all time to ACTUALLY sort through the scraps) My birthday gift to you is a super-fun-scrap-busting quilt along with all your Bloggy and Flickr friends! I’m calling it:
Get them out, get ready to sort them and get ready to use them up! Here is the quilt pattern we will be making:
Cool huh? The smallest scrap is 2.5″ square for your reference when sorting. I will be putting the final pattern touches together and of course there will be giveaways and coupons and such from Pink Castle Fabrics!
What’s that? You don’t have scraps? You are still new to quilting? No worries! My shop scraps are OVERFLOWING! I will be making bundles for sale and giveaways. AND this pattern is charm pack friendly! (the lap size shown uses 4 charm packs) Don’t worry if you are a quilting fledgling this pattern is easy enough for a beginner!
I know, I know. You are just as excited as I am! Here’s a button for your blog:
