Organizing Scraps, UFO’s and Patterns for Sale

My organizing is coming along very well and  yesterday I decided to look at my boxes of scraps of batiks.  When I was working on Squared Away I had to really dig through my Batik scraps to see if I had a small piece of purple that I had used in the first block.  I was unsuccessful – darn!   I do not have a lot of scraps but enough batiks that can be used in quilts or maybe even some applique projects that need to be cut into squares of different sizes.  Whenever I make a quilt, I put the scraps that are worth saving, in a bag in case they were ever needed to repair a quilt.  But the little boxes have added up and it is time to do what other Bloggers have been doing – cutting up squares and triangles!



Progress from yesterday afternoon:

Cutting up scraps is a  great project to work on when it is foggy, drizzling rain, and cool and when a quilter needs a break from thinking!  LOL

My  UFO 2007 BOM can wait a few days while I complete the organizing and cutting the batik scraps.

I still have a few PATTERNS FOR SALE:  Raw Edge Applique Patterns – McKenna Ryan’s original Petals of My Heart – the complete BOM with 2 sets of note cards and 3 patterns from Bigfork Bay Cotton Company by Toni Whitney –  Deer, Eagle, and Horse;  Kreations by Karen Story Book Quilt;  Irene Blanck’s Mosaics and Tuplia; Missie Carpenter’s Gardens of a King; Editar Sitar’s Common Bride, Sunnyside Sampler, Vicksburg.  All patterns are new and not used.   I have decided that I will not be making them in the future.  (Dancing Dollies and Sweet Surrender have been sold)

My 2007 BOM UFO blocks are ready for fabric selection.  I may even be able to make them with the scrap box clean out that I am in the process of working on.

Have a great week-end – I do believe that I will enjoy Spring more than ever this year – at least we will see some sun!  San Antonio received all the heavy rain we are still in the sprinkles!  Guess it is best not to complain, the grass is growing and turning green…. Spring is coming!

  1. Good Morning!
    Wow, great progress on those scraps. I try to cut up scraps as I make them, into 2.5″ or 2″ blocks. Of course, that worked well until the stack of squares mysteriously disappeared. Sue put them some place safe, and unknown to both of us. ~smile~ Roseanne


  2. I did a large scrap project this morning after I did my February camping block, which turned out hilarious. (The camping block, not the scrap project.) I’ll probably put it up tomorrow!😆 Your batiks are looking quite fab in those little boxes, I’m sure the inspiration is pouring from them!


    1. Well, at least I am an organized quilter!!!! Whatever that means other than going blind cutting squares! LOL. I have had some of those blocks in my quilting years! I am saving larger pieces for applique and now at the point if it will only give me one block, it might find a new home in the trash can! OOPS! Have a great weekend Kathy!

    1. I found one box that already had some cut! Nice to know that those were done long ago.
      The larger pieces are being kept for my applique projects, those too small are going bye bye!
      I am getting tired of doing this, BUT so close to finishing! YEA! Have a great week-end.


  3. Good for you for getting organized. I never am. I hate cutting!
    And no signs of spring here in Iowa yet. Crocus blooming in the lawn is the first sign here.


    1. Well, the best thing is that it emptied about 4 shoe boxes full of scraps that would probably never be used. Worse comes to worse, a scrappy quilter may get an unexpected gift!!! LOL


  4. Great organization! I’m jealous yours is finished and mine still has so far to go. LOL Your projects for this year are wonderful plans, too.
