I'm pretty scrappy.

Remember how Jodi had a Scraps-Along which I followed along with, entered the giveaways for, never sewed anything with my scraps? (Hangs head in shame.) I planned to, but right before the holidays is hard. Anyway, recently I went through my scraps and pulled out a whole bunch of strips -- all different widths and lengths. See them all ironed up and color-coded?
My quilting group wants to do a stacked coins quilt starting in January like the one I made from a jelly roll. I don't have a jelly roll right now, but I do have tons of scraps, so I decided to modify mine. They'll still be doing the jelly roll version. More to come on this project in the next little while. I'm so excited to be using up scraps! Better late than never.

Those are some gorgeous scraps, and that's a great idea to use them like a jelly roll. I think jelly rolls were suppose to resemble scraps anyhow weren't they? Lol*

I get excited about using scraps too. Can't wait to see the stacked coins.

I love scraps, it's so great to see them grow in a beautiful quilt. You do have great scraps.
