Scrappy Sunday

At my  new guild, we are having a scrap exchange at the next meeting.  We are to bring bags of 2 1/2 inch squares.  As these things tend to progress, there was only a little interest at first, but as the day approaches, the event is growing exponentially!

This has been great for me, as I have a LOT of scraps.  I've been pulling out the smaller pieces and cutting them into squares.


If they aren't big enough for 2 1/2 inches, I've cut them into 2 inch ones for a leaders and enders project I've been graduallly working on for a couple years.

Once I cut a bunch, I sorted them into piles of 50.

 Three hundred cut so far, but I'm not done yet!

I have no idea what I'm going to do with all the scraps I'll be getting back in this exchange.  But I'm sure I can think of something!

Linking up with Mary at Sew Sunday and Kim for Scrap Basket Sunday.

OOOH! I love charms (squares)! Every time I finish a project, I cut scraps into squares. I don't want the sraps to take over my sewing room - LOL! I have lots of 2 and 2.5 inch squares... Saving for postage stamp quilts. :)

perfect size square to keep extras of. I have a couple projects now using them, one has blue squares and the other florals.

I love little charms. You could make a postage Stamp Quilt. They are fun to do. I want to make another one.

I made a Scrappy Double Irish Chain made up with 2" squares. It's beautiful if I have to say myself - though there are others who have told me that so I feel safe to say so too. LOL! Anyways between exchanges and other scrappy quilts your efforts of cutting will ultimately bring great results!
