The Quilters Knitting Group on Ravelry hosted an International Scrap Swap. My packages have been received from...
These are particularly special because they came all the way from New Zealand!! I even got a little Kiwi fabric lesson when the arrived. LOL!! Bonus... Can YOU spot the one Australian fabric?
She included a bunch of novelty prints. Fun!!! :o))
I also received a package from...
Bowie, who had some project leftovers that I thought would be useful in any number of my own quilts:
It's QUITE surprising just how much can be fit into a Priority Mailer!! In case you can't make out the writing... that label indicated that there are 156 - 15" x 2" strips. That's in addition to 156 - 5" squares and 30 - 2" x 1.5" rectangles. ALL very usable!!
The last package came from Sandy at Sew... This is My Blog, who wrote the following in her January Scrap Attack post:
"... I've started with the smaller pieces, pressing and stacking. The plan is to cut them into 2", 2.5", 3", and 3.5" squares, and 2.5" x 4.5" bricks. What's left will be cut into strips, and pieces less than 2" are going into the trash. (Don't tell anyone.)..."
To which I responded:
Happy slicing and dicing!! I have to tell you though, I wasn't happy to hear that you throw away pieces smaller than 2". I about had a panic attack thinking about those poor 1" to 1.5" pieces!! They must be SEW frightened in that big dark trash can. :o((
That is so funny! I knew there were people out there who use teeny weeny scraps so I thought I'd get caught! lol
Seriously - If you want them, I'll start saving them for you.
This is what I wrote back:
LOL!! We all have our limits, I suppose. As for saving them for me...
I would LOVE that!!! Maybe you should do a monthly drawing for your leftovers. That way I won't have to feel greedy. :o))
Here's what I got in the mail:
You will be happy to know that I've already rummaged through the gallon sized Ziploc bag and sewn some of these together!! See???
Look!! A ton of "twosies" for an unspecified project:
But WAIT!! There's more...
I won't mention that I have won a giveaway. Oops! I suppose I just did. LOL The blogger hasn't announced the winner yet, so I will check back with you once my prize has made its way to my door.
Until next time...
Wait for it. Wait for it!!
