Scrappy String Quilt

TopTopI do love scrap quilts!

I save all scraps from all of my projects.  Several of my friends save their scraps for me too so I have an even larger variety of colors and prints.

My scraps are sorted into eight different categories and stored in plastic tubs.   The categories I use are: *Crumbs* --- pieces smaller than 2½" square, *Chips*--- pieces smaller than 4½" square, *Charms* --- pieces 4½" square to 8" square,  *Chunks* --- 8" square or larger, *Selvedges* --- narrow pieces of the selvedge edge of the fabric, *Strips* --- 2½" or wider, evenly cut, *Strings* --- pieces wider than ¾" can be uneven and *Strays* --- blocks leftover from a project or practice.

Snow Day

SquaresSquaresSquaresSquaresand More Squaresand More SquaresYesterday was a wonderful day.  It was a snow day! The Chicagoland Area was hit with a winter storm and with it came that most-wanted five a.m. phone call.  The official---school is closed today phone call which translates into the you can stay in your jammies, have an extra cup of coffee, add three extra minutes to your nice hot shower, throw in a load of laundry and go to your studio and play with fabric all day phone call. I'm not sure who likes snow days more.....the students or the teachers!
