I THINK I AM FAILING SCRAP MANAGEMENT...
although I did tidy this up before taking the pic... it was overflowing all over the floor - now it's just stuffed into this bin.
I have an image of this bin all cut up into the famous Bonnie Hunter scrap management system... and I DID buy all those rolling drawers, and labeled them by size... and they are nearly full... BUT I STILL HAVE ALL THESE SCRAPS.........&*()(*(*&(
and they are GROWING..........(*&)(*&)(*&)(*&
Actually, I guess I'm being too hard on myself, and will exercise the old Bell curve (knowing all of you have bins of scraps, too), and upgrade myself to a C..
So - on this beautiful lovely spring day - how about you? What grade will you give yourself on scrap management???? Come on now, it's time to fess up - Leave a comment and a grade...
A - almost no scraps - all cut up and put away
B - a pile of scraps smaller than shoebox
C - scraps bigger than a breadbox
D - scraps as big as a garbage can
F - scraps as big as Rhode Island

What a cute little block!!!!
I made this little block this morning, after discovering the instructions on the Sew Wonderful website at http://sewwonderful.blogspot.com/2010/02/disappearing-4-patch-or-4-to-9-patch.html
It's really easy - starts with a simple four-patch, and quickly turns into this lovely little block.
Thanks, Sally, for the instructions!!

Company Came !
Wow - some people visited my blog! This is starting to be fun...
This photo is a lovely Mystery Quilt I made last year on New Years Day with a mystery from the Quiltbug Shop ... they are on the web at http://quiltbug.com, so please visit! They do mysteries on holidays like New Years Day and SuperBowl Sunday (ok, I know that's really not a holiday)... great days when all is quiet and I don't have to work!
I am constantly amazed at all the generous and kind people in the quilting world... like Kris Driessen who runs the Quiltbug Shop and does these wonderful mysteries... thanks Kris, and others like you, for these wonderful events!
