So as I stated in one of the post below, I wanted to do something that was quick and didn't want to really start anything new...

so join me in my scrap bin diving!

Fabrics left over from Candy Cane Lane

I had wanted to make this one a king size quilt for the blog hop in January but ran out of the yellow Island Batik Fabric and could not find any of it online at all, just my luck!

So I made a second quilt since I had made all of these curves from the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful.

So here comes the extra projects from my scrap bin diving

No photo description available.
I just finished this small quilt 49 1/2" x 49 1/2".  I had several checker board blocks, so I just added them together.  I had fussy cut the quilt bove to get the reindeer just right so I had some fussy cut strips left over so I just used them here.  Since they were left over scraps from the fussy cut the reindeer just don't quite line up which gives the illusion of a wonky quilt.

What to do with all of the extra curved pieces?????    I decided to just blanket stitch them together, I guess I could have sewn them together and have gotten the same thing.  Added the reindeer and there you have it.  Love the curved ends.

                                                Image may contain: stripes

Here is a table runner with more curved blocks, trust me, this runner looks way better in person than here.

There projects were so fun and it certainly emptied my scrap bin of some unfinished blocks.  I still have curved blocks left, if you are reading them and want them, I would be happy to send them to you.  I think there are around 24 left.  That being said, I have just about used up all of the fabric line of Candy Cane Lane. 

Did it make a dent in my scraps?  NOOOOOOO but it was oh so fun!

I had almost purchased this book on Amazon but lucky for me my Sister Jeanette sent me this book for my birthday.  YEA ME!!

                                             Love this flower block!  Loved making it.

Love this Bee hive, someone on instagram said it looked like stairs but I didn't ask for her critique but I love this anyways.


                                                                       Crossstitch block


                                                                Pie and oven mitts

I just love this book, you have the option of 6" or 12 " blocks or both, also I love that you can make this quilt anyway you want.

I love the blocks. You were so creative with all of your scraps. That is something I need to be better at doing.

I feel as inspired after reading your post today as I am when I attend a quilt show. I love your quilts, scrap bin leftover projects, as well as new blocks. All are filled with #CreativeGoodness.

Wow, your scrap bin diving would be a year’s worth of projects for me. I have a friend who goes dumpster diving, and she always came back with treasures! Unrelated for sure, but it reminds me of her. I love all the wonky reindeer. Wonky is my style. Lol!

What great uses of scraps. You know that I love scrap quilts. I need to use more of mine before they overrun the craft room.

What a busy girl you've been! Since I work mostly by hand, not machine, this would be a couple of years' worth of work!

Why is it that scraps projects never empty our bins?! Cute stuff.
