Oh Scrap! : Wanna Join Me?

Happy Sunday Everyone!

It is my favorite day of the week because I get to see what all of you have been up to with your scraps.

I am also excited today because I can announce that I am going to be an instructor on a scrap retreat  Yes, you can grab a friend and a pile of scraps and spend three days with me turning those scraps into some lovely quilts.

The venue is at the Stars Aligned Quilting Retreat.  It is located here in Eugene Oregon.  There are two lovely houses with wonderful room choices.  And a really nice crafting studio where we can let the scraps fly!

The dates are Thursday September 19th through Sunday September 22nd.  

Thursday evening I will be sharing my scrap quilts and discussing my inspiration, design choices and how I store my scraps.

The fun starts Friday morning as each student starts evaluating their own scraps and identifying the best scrappy design and color scheme for the scraps they have.  Yep!  Everyone is going to be making a different quilt designed specifically for the scraps they have!

Once everyone gets going, I will leave you to the sewing and be back Saturday morning for any further assistance.  Maybe I will come back to some finished quilt tops!

You can read more about the event here.  I would love to meet some of you in person.  
I think it is going to be a whole lot of fun!


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up: 

  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do! 
Quilting is more fun than Housework

I can hear your excitement in your post. It's gonna be so much fun!! and I would love to go but since I'm live in Ontario, Canada, it's kind of a long drive ... so I'll pass. :^( I so love what you do with your scraps and orphan blocks; I would love to hear what you think and how you see my scraps. Just too bad. I hope you'll take plenty of pictures. Enjoy! ;^)
