Are you drowning in fabric scraps??
Have unused jelly rolls left...or parts of jelly rolls left over??
Are new to quilting and not sure where to start?
or just want to have an old fashioned quilting bee with friends?

Come join us in making two quilts..the Scrappy Trip Along and the Postage Stamp quilt!

Both quilts are quite popular on the quilting blogs right now and are easy to do..limited only by your scraps and time.

And both can be made in any size from cushion cover to king size bed!

The Scrappy Trip Along requires fabrics 2.5" x 16" and the Postage Stamp strips are 2" x 7", if you are using left over jelly rolls you can get 2 STA strips and 1 Postage strip from each one.
Some examples:

and another one

and one in progress

Let's dive into those scrap bins or use the Easy Street leftovers and get started!

Jann- Can I jump in with my zebra quilt? It's not scrappy, but it is quilting.

I don't have a cotton stash yet. I need to come up with an idea for using knit scraps. I have loads of those. I wonder if a crazy quilt pattern would work? Any ideas?

The Scrappy Trip Around the World IS taking a trip around the quilting world!!! It's a hot pattern and quick to pull together. Those links are great. I'd love to join maybe I can make this a Leader and Ender quilt because my goal this years is to work on UFO... Right now I am doing an applique project

Jump on in! Years ago, in this area there was a woman who made quilts from knits..I don't recall what type, but several people I worked with bought some. Why don't you try a couple of blocks? Try cutting the strips so the stretch goes lengthwise, then if it stretches too much, it will be cut off when the block is squared up.

As you know, I'm just starting my quilting stash also, but I've used lots of cottons for tops...bear that in mind when planning your summer wardrobe

Great!! I know that there is a Flicker group and lots of bloggers, but I don't do Flicker or blogs and wanted some company!! These looked to be easy enough and fun enough to do a bit when time allows and still end up with a good looking project.

Thanks for starting this jannw -- it should be just what I need to get started on some quilting projects for the grandkids. I'm hoping to get one done for each of them before Christmas. I've been going through cotton remnants from years and years of projects and should have more than enough to do a quilt for each of them without shopping -- I think I might even have enough larger pieces for backing. The only thing I'll need to buy will be the batting -- time to start watching for a sale on that.

Can't wait to see everyone's projects.

I just recently picked up this baby... June Tailor Shape Cut Plus I think a good way to cut scraps.

As much as I'd love to get a Accuquilt. I can bring myself to spend the money on it.

If you like Hobbs, it's on sale through February 18 (they extended it) at Connecting Threads...30% off. I did get a roll, but haven't used it yet..since I don't drive, I really liked the delivered to my door aspect of it!

Finally got my Flash fixed on the computer so could see this..you are evil!! I just ordered it!! Looks like fun and so helpful for the larger pieces..I've been folding everything so I could cut with my 12".

They had a big sale on the Go Baby at Christmas, but I chickened out also...whether I'd use it enough and if the tiny size and expensive addons were worth it..this looks better and cheaper..more fabric money!

I hate cutting strips so I know this will make it easier.
