Scrap everything and sew blog hop

Hi and welcome to the final day of the scrap everything and sew  blog hop.

 When Pat @ mentioned she was doing a scrappy blog hop I new I needed to join.

This is a pile of scraps setting by my sewing machine

Today I am sharing a couple of projects that are ongoing and long term.  Every quilter ends up with scraps, right?   And it can be hard to throw them away, especially since you know what fabric costs.

A few years ago I came across a really good site for using scraps and this lady has a system set up called the scrap users system.  You can read more about it at  Bonnie has a wonderful system and she even has free patterns available that uses scraps.  Through following Bonnie she has taught me that it is okay to even have your background scrappy.

So on to my projects.   This one is one that I am working on from a swap group I was in.  It is called the spider web block.

Thus one came from a website called .

Both of these blocks are basically the same, you just start with different sizes of foundation squares.

Another thing you can do with your scraps is an English Paper piecing project.    I love EPP.  It is very portable and fun to do.

Please check out these other bloggers who have posted throughout the week and see what they are doing with scraps.   You just may be inspired.
