Would You Like Stripes With That?

So my friend who has her own surgical-cap business has given me several bags of her (very cute) fabric scraps.   And now that one-third of my children are gone every school day, I’m tackling a new project.  It involves taking these piles in the library


these piles on the sewing room floor


more piles on the guest bed


and more piles in sacks


and taming them into this


in order to make something like this:


And that, my friends, is my very own brand of masochism.

    Thanks for the encouragement! The fabrics are so fun to work with, maybe I won’t notice that it will take me 3.5 years to get the quilt done!

    From the efficiency of your scrap sorting, and the neat piles they’re in – you’ll have that baby done in no time! Can’t wait to see the finished product!

    Welcome to Stashbusters – you’ll be truly inspired by the group. Looks like you’re pretty good at taming scraps – maybe being a mom of 6 gave you a headstart!
