Scrap Attack 2018 - January Report

I can't believe it's already time to report on what I accomplished for January's Scrap Attack and to set a goal for February.  I was glad my grandson pulled "Cut Up Blues" from my bag of goals last month.  I knew it would be easy because I am definitely not a blue person, and I don't have much of a blue stash.  This is what it looked like then .....

It looks like I had way more than I did, mainly because when I unfolded them most of the pieces looked like this .....

.... and this.

It didn't take long to press all of it and get to cutting.  See what I mean?  Lots of odds and ends and bits.

Anything about the size of a fat quarter or larger I kept in the stash, and the rest got cut into squares and bricks, a few strips, too.

This is what my blue stash looks like now.  I don't mind one bit that there isn't a lot.

February is here so it's time to pull a new goal from the bag. None of my grandsons were around, so it fell to Hubby.  As long as it wasn't "Cut Up Greens" I would be happy. Anything else, anything else, anything.......

Well, Phooey!  I guess I'd better get busy.  I have a lot of greens!

At least it looks like some of them are the size of a fat quarter or larger.  Fingers crossed, maybe most of them are!

Linking up with Confessions of a Fabric Addict Scrap Attack.



  1. Well, one thing I can say is that you will enjoy making something with your greens.

  2. Green, huh? The color of luck or money. Think of it as saving your money. You will something all ready to sew, and not need to buy for a new project. Maybe just in time for St. Patty's Day next month? Trying hard to give you a good reason for all the work here! You're doing great just by sticking to your plan.

  3. Cut up blues was just to get you warmed up, and Cut up greens is the main event! Or maybe it's like that old adage: Eat a live toad every morning and the rest of your day will always be better than breakfast! At least by March you won't have those greens hanging over your head for the rest of the year :)

  4. You'll be glad it's done when you go to make a quilt and all the pieces are cut.
