Have you noticed over on the sidebar under Books We're Reading that I'm reading a fun new sewing book--Cut the Scraps!?
My son, Jonathan, picked it out for me for Christmas from Patchwork Plus, our local quilting shop. I'm loving it, and I'd never even heard of it before! How did he know to buy the perfect book?
The first chapter is titled Fixing the Scrap Problem...hmm, I might be bogged down there for awhile!
You can read all about the month long Scraps-Along here and get involved in all the scrap projects each week! Or at least follow along and bookmark some of the projects to do later.
Here's a great post Jodi wrote on Organizing your Scraps.
Later this week Sarah's teaching quilting to a group of friends, and we're gathering up some scraps to practice making quilt blocks. Jodi linked to Freda's picnic scrap quilt, and I will, too. It looks like a simple block for beginners and great for using scraps.
