Scrap Attack!

Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict has put forth a Scrap Attack challenge for 2018.  Here's how it works.  I have chosen twelve scrap projects for the coming year, written them on slips of paper, and put the strips in a little gift bag in my sewing room. At the beginning of each month I'll pull a slip from the bag and that will be my scrap goal for the month along with whatever other project I'm working on at the time.  

Here are my twelve.

1.  Make something using some of these 2.5" batik strips.

2.  Make a string quilt from my strings basket.

3.  Use up all the strings in these large containers, then recycle the containers. 

4.  Make at least one baby quilt from these Tom and Jerry prints.  (I cut out pajamas for my grandsons about 9 or 10 years ago and never made them!)

5.  Make at least one quilt from my overflowing supply of novelty prints.  (Yes, there are stacks behind the stacks!)

6.  Use these leftovers from Savannah and Sahara's baby quilts in a project.  (You can see their quilts HERE.)

7.  Use strips to make a quilt like this one on Carmen Geddes Quilts Facebook page.

8.  Make something with these fat quarters given to me by a friend.

9.  Cut up green scraps into squares.

10.  Cut up blue scraps into squares.

11.  Cut up pink scraps into squares.

12.  Cut up yellow scraps into squares.

All this is in addition to my plan to finish Josh's T-shirt quilt, finish Debbie's batik quilt, make Aaron a rag quilt, and make A.J. a black quilt.

Whew!  I think I should probably ask you to wish me luck. Looks like I'm going to need it!

I'm linking up with Sarah's Scrap Attack 2018.


  1. I'm shocked! I didn't think you had that many scraps. ;D

  2. Lots of fun projects in this list! I really like that Carmen Geddes quilt. It would work with any strips and look good. Best of luck tackling the scrap monster :)

  3. Good Luck! I'm looking forward to participating as well.

  4. Yummy batiks! I look forward to seeing what you do with the novelty prints. My sister retired from teaching kindergarten this year and gifted me a rubbermaid tote of kids prints to use in charity quilts.

  5. Won't you need those containers for MORE scraps?!?!

  6. You do have some fun projects here! A word of warning on that Carmen Geddes quilt - it doesn't work out quite the way she says it will, you'll need to be flexible - but it's a fun quilt to make! Good luck!

  7. You really do have more scraps than I thought you had too. I guess you are going to want to know what I'm going to work on using my scraps too? Mine don't look as exciting as yours, but they are all scrappy goodness. I just have to get busy listing them.
