Scrap-A-Palooza Quilt Gallery



Welcome to the quilt gallery pages for my Scrap-A-Palooza scrap series.  You will find helpful pictures and links to all the projects should you want to sew up some of your own scraps.  There is a button to grab on the right margin if you want to share with your readers what you are up to.



Why Scrap-A-Palooza?  Because Quilting is more fun than Housework! 


Here are some general posts for working with scraps. 



***Note:  With each quilt, you will find the quilt stats on my quilts in the "Finish" link (usually Part 4).  This will give you information on the size of my quilts and the materials that went into it. ***

What are the dimensions of your Horizontal Bar Scrappy Quilt? I'm finally working on mine, and think I will make it a baby quilt size. Trying to decide how long my bars should be!
