Scrap Happy Summer with Em's Scrapbag :)

This morning I am guest posting over at Emily's as part of her Scrap Happy Summer series.  Emily is such a sweetheart and a wonderful friend.  I was so excited when she asked if I would share a bit about my scraps.  I mean, who doesn't love scraps!!  And, as part of my post, there just may be a new completed scrappy quilt top ;)  You remember this Star Value Quilt Block . . . Well pop on over to see the entire quilt top made with the blocks from my wonderful Beejeeber's friends :)

Thanks again Emily for having me!!!  It is almost as much fun talking about scraps as it is playing with them.  What is your favorite thing to do with your scraps??
Pin It!


  1. Thanks for being a part of Scrap Happy Summer. I love this quilt. It is on my bucket list.

  2. Thanks for sharing this, Melissa! I have always admired your Star Value block on Craftsy and keep plugging it on my facebook page. It was nice to see a quilt made with the block. Glad to meet Emily, too!

  3. I seem to give away a lot of my scraps. I don't do a ton of paper piecing, but I know a lot of people online who do, and friends of mine online who've never been much into quilting (so, no appreciably stash) have slowly started moving in that paper piecing direction, so I like to send an envelope full of fabric scraps to people who need it. I've done it four or five times now, and somehow the scrap bin doesn't seem to empty out, so I think I need to keep it up :D

    (I'm forever saying that I'm going to make a string quilt using scraps one day, but I haven't ever gotten around to it. Someday, though...)


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
