WHAT IS GOING ON TODAY AT CAMP BEJEWELED RETREAT?

Oh you guessed it....my scraps are in revolt. They heard me complaining about their breeding habits.....

Get back you scrappy beast...get back!!!


I need to teach them a lesson...so out I pull my go cutter....oh yes....we have a camp day with Mr. Go....
While I was in my cutting frenzie, Krista came over....I stopped my scrap busting and let her cut out the drunkard's path for two quilts..... While she was sewing (showed her how easy the curves were) I took her scraps and busted them all up...no scrap breeding at her house.


Then at the end of my cutting....this is the results....Ahhhhhhhhh feels sooooooooooooooooo good.


The scraps are not overflowing the top of this basket any more. If you want to see what it did look like, just look on the post below. Until another day you scrappy beast....and let this be a lesson to you....no scrap breeding tonight. If you are over flowing in the morning...there is going to be a cutting......mark my word..... Be afraid....be very afraid.

You really did tame that pile of scraps! I can't wait to see what you do with them.

Way to GO, Barb!

Sherry said...

You always make me smile.

Tracy said...

Oh, that stack is so pretty and well-behaved! I am SO impressed by your mastery of the scrap. It's VERY inspiring!

alice said...

Hee hee hee!!! I am glad I'm not a scrap. L,A-

QuiltSue said...

Long Live the Go! cutter. Now I'm looking forward to seeing what you make with all those tamed and tidy pieces.

It does seem like those pesky scraps breed. When I get my Go or studio I plan to keep my two scrap bins down to one. What is bad is I have several stacks of squares cut in one of those plastic roll around drawer thigy's. I just have way to much fabric.

Gene Black said...

Excellent Barb! You are ready to make more quilts. I am just wondering if you will sew as much when you move off the island.

Rumi said...

WooHoo! Great job. You had some nice sized scraps in there too. What a fun toy Mr. Go is!

JustCindy said...

You showed those scraps a thing or two. Now show us what you did with all those squares. ;)

carmel said...

Rachel said...

Holy scraps! Great way to tame that monster! Now whatcha gonna do with all those neatly cut pieces, huh?

Tangos Treasures said...

OMGosh!! you stopped them dead in their tracks!! LOL

Robin (rsislandcrafts) said...

That's one of the good things about the Go! cutter. Banish the scraps!!

onlymehere said...

So, I take a break from blogging a bit (life's busy crazy right now) and your scraps decide to breed! I'm glad you tamed them and it looks like they're going to be some beautiful quilts now!

Yvette said...

Now that is much better!

I hope your turning that Go with both hands. LOL

sewmeow said...

We just gotta keep up with the beastly scraps.....or they take over our sewing areas. The GO makes it easy to use them.

hetty said...

Wow! You sound serious! If I was scrap at your house I would definitely stay home and not party tonight!

Mary L. said...

Great job!

Just Ramblin' said...

You make me laugh! However, I do believe scraps are just like bunnies, multiplying every time you turn around.

sewmeow said...

Great job on those pesky scraps. They do reproduce when we aren't looking, though...so watch out. You'll have lots more in a couple weeks.

Pat said...

Between the scraps and the Go, sounds like you've got quite a day.
Happy Quilting!

Patty said...

I guess you showed them! The little scrap happy scappies!

Susan Entwistle said...

love the tall tidy pile of GO cuts. i'm sure you're feeling extra good about your accomplishments.

Little Lady Patchwork said...

Thanks,

Way to show those scraps who's boss!

SewCalGal said...

Very cute post. You are not tossing the scraps in the basket are you? Clearly, you need to get the flower and/or tear drop die. The tear drop die consumes even very small scraps!
