Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

Fabric “Scraps”


Last weekend my quilting buddies went to a quilt retreat.  I had to stay home and work.  🙁  But it wasn’t a total disappointment.  One of the quilt shops they stopped at had  “scrap bags”.  They bought several bags and then divided up the fabric, bringing me what is pictured above.  🙂

With the exception of one FQ in the bottom row, everything is full width, including one piece which is 120″ wide.  There are a couple of pieces which are 5 or 6 inches long, but most are in the 9 – 12 inch range.  One of the red pieces is a yard long and the bundle on the right consists of 3 pieces totaling 3 yards! And to think this is “scrap”!

The scraps above the full cuts range from strings, to 9″ squares.  The white fabric on the top left looks like it excess backing.

I can’t wait to start playing with this fabric.  But first, I’ve got a quilt to finish.  I’m 3/4 of the way through the quilting and with the help of my quilting buddies have picked a binding and a pillowcase cuff – all from my stash.

2 Thoughts on “Fabric “Scraps”

  1. You sure have nice Quilt buddies! Is this the Retreat you usually have done a Mystery for? Glad your almost done with your quilting.

    • No, this is a different retreat – it’s closer to home. One of the quilt shops in Lawrence sponsors it twice a year. There’s a waiting list to get into it. The one I’ve written the mystery for is in April. None of us are going to it this year. Instead we are going to a 1 day retreat sponsored by the shop that I do my quilting at (pure coincidence.) Our overnight retreat this year is the Kansas Trouble Quilters retreat in Bennington, KS in June.
