Mail Call Monday - June/July Scrap Infusion

Welcome to the next edition of Mail Call Monday!!!  As you may know, I'm always up for a stash enhancement or a scrap infusion.  Both have occurred in the last several weeks.  I thought you might like to see.

Neutrals, lights, or low volume???

Whatever the term YOU use, I got a fun pack of them last week from Wanda @ Exuberant Color:


... Many pieces...

... That is took FOUR photos to get them all in:

Now, I just need to determine which project(s) these lovelies will be going in!  First world problems, I realize.

Also arrived, via carrier pigeon, at various other times...

Candy had a bag of scraps for me:

Just LOOK at those lovely Dark BLUE scraps (among others!!)  My RSC Quilter friends might be a tad bit jealous about that one.  :P

Ella presented me with a grocery sized bag FULL of scraps when I was at her house for Linda's outdoor Retirement Party.  This one included a couple of Thimbleberries patterns:

And from Diane, a produce bag STUFFED with delicious scraps:

I think I have a plan for these.  Off to check the cutting instructions that Needleb sent a couple of weeks ago.  We're having a QAL using a pattern that we got at Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival. I wasn't really into it when she texted me, but these scrap have me really excited about the project.

Then, as the month drew to a close...

I had a visitor...

... Who came bearing gifts:

Dee Dee drove by on the way to run her errands for the week.  Strips, Batiks, and Crumbs were added to my collection.

Wow!! Nothing like a bag of someone else's scraps to get one's creative juices flowing!!

Thank you, Wanda, for making up that packet of neutrals for me.  Quilting friends?  YOU kind and generous  enablers of my scrap addiction, a special THANKS to each of you!  I SEW appreciate you sharing your bounty with me.

Until next time...
Pass the scraps!!!


  1. Oh, I also love scraps. Yours are so beautiful. I buy fabrics, but seldom use them. I more love scraps. I don't know how to get enough.

  2. Wanda did not just GIVE them to you??? You paid for them, right? I noticed she had a pop-up shop.
    I call them low volumes!!! I am loving your haul, Joy. I am using a whole lot of them low volumes in my RSC Project#2.

  3. Looks like a lot of fun scraps. I look forward to seeing what you do with them!

  4. Whoa! LOTS of happy mail there! I know you are going to have such a great time with those! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with them all. :)

    1. Forgot to answer your question. I call 'em low volume too. :)

  5. It's so true that other people's scraps are just immediately inspiring! And the same thing happens when I finally receive an order of miscellaneous fabric that I ordered on eBay weeks ago. It must be the element of surprise that gets those juices flowing :)

  6. Lots of fun scraps to play with. You have very some very nice friends.

  7. That would be so much fun to play with someone else’s scraps. I’ve been enjoying scraps so much lately.

  8. Looks like you have lots to keep you busy now.
