Scrap Quilt Challenge is less than two weeks away

It’s almost that time of year again!

Time to dig in those scrap bins and create a new masterpiece from what you have!

We are excited to announce big (make that BIG) new things with this year’s challenge. 

All the challenge details will be announced the first week of July.  You will be happy.  You will be very happy!  (but you have to wait…)


In the meantime,  grab your favorite scrappy books, magazines and patterns, then start planning your quilt. 

Is your sewing space a mess?  Now’s a good time to get in there & make some piles.  Make your scrap quilt from the biggest pile! 

When my bin starts to look like Medusa,

I tame those scraps by cutting them all into one size.  2.5” strips & squares are my favorites.


Check out the creations from past challenges in our flickr groups:
