Scraps, Inc.

Scraps, Inc. - My Favorite Things by Amy Ellis - AmysCreativeSide.comI’ve mentioned this new book a few times, but today I have pictures to accompany all that talk! Scraps, Inc. is full of amazing scrap quilts, that you want to make! There’s also tons of inspiring photography, and great diagrams to make sure you know exactly what to do next.

For me making a scrap quilt is a bit of a luxury, but always a favorite. I love the reminder of the past projects all sewn into one beautiful quilt top. My quilt included in the book is a collection of my favorite blocks, colors, and fabrics. My Favorite Things:

Star blocks make up the center, then I have four-patches, triangles, lots of log cabins, and churn dash blocks to finally frame the quilt top.

I happily used bits of fat quarters, and random charm packs that I have collected, along with all my scraps, it was so fun to give them all a home in this quilt top. I wanted the blocks to be small enough to use the most special (read: tiny) of scraps.

I quilted it with interlocking circles of various sizes. It needed to stay comfy and soft for snuggle time! It measures 60″x78″ – perfect for snuggling under on the couch during our long winters!

      Thanks Carrie! It did take time, but the results are worth it – I made it in a couple weeks, but when I make it again, it’ll be a few blocks here a few blocks there as I have scraps and time available.

    Is there anywhere to see all the quilts in this book? I try not to buy a book unless I like at least 3 of the quilts in it. I’m hard to please, but I love your scrappy quilt!
