Well that is a lot of CRAP...I mean SCRAPS...yes scraps = material!

Winner #95 Shannon, please connect with me, with your address...will be sending you 4 spools of Aurifil...
congrats and thanks for such great comments for Jenny...she was thrilled...and loved the perks..
YOU peeps Rock... nighty nite mdm samm



Hello everyone...I'm Jenny and I blog at Cut.Sew.Iron.Repeat.  I must confess...my post today is an experiment I have just cooked up.  I have been overwhelmed by my scraps and after shipping off 5 USPS Flat Rate Envelopes full of scraps to my blog readers, I have not even dented my scrap piles.

So...being a quilter, I thought...why not just sew them all together?  That is what I have done.  I started with a pile of scraps.






Mostly strips and squares.

I then chain pieced them together at the machine...not paying attention to fabrics or what piece fit best where.
It took me 5 rounds of sewing...ironing...and trimming.  Each time condensing the scraps into larger blocks.
This picture shows, in order, trash scraps, potentially usable scraps for small projects and then the next three piles are my groups of blocks sewn together.


This picture shows my finished product along with a few blocks leftover.

So I am excited and encouraged by the fact that I went from a pile of scraps shoved into a shoe box to a usable piece of fabric nearly the size of a fat quarter!

I have seen other quilters use this method in their piece-work...the first that comes to mind is Victoria at Bumble Beans. She does some incredible work...and my Flickr friends have pointed me in the direction of Completely Cauchy who also does amazing things with scraps.

So if this idea interests you, why not give it a try.  Nothing ventured nothing gained...and who doesn't have a few thousand scraps lying around?

I know this is short and sweet, but I also have a giveaway...
I KNOW, leave me a comment here, 
 what color is your dominant scraps...
( I would have said orange for me)
and please come and see me at my blog and leave me a comment too...
so I know you came to visit...

GIVEAWAY is some THREADS from Aurifil...
4 of them...like some? not necessarily these colors..
but 4 threads in different thread counts...
Thanks to Carola for the giveaway..
I don't want to wear out my welcome..
 so thanks for having me..
Jenny.

  1. I love scraps! I happened to be sorting mine yesterday, and most of them are blue.

  2. Purple is my dominant scrap color because I use it often! I love what you did with the blocks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  3. My dominant scrap color is definitely blue. I am definitely going to do your scrap block/fabric. I love working with scraps but they grow faster than I can use them.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Green is my dominant scrap. Love your blocks from scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I laughed when I read that you had sent off packages of your scraps to your readers. I tried that, too, but I keep buying fabric and making more scraps so it didn't work. No dent in my stash now or anytime in the future. LOL! The dominate color in my stash would be red although it's pretty multi-colored, too. Your new piece of fabric that you created from your scraps would make a great quilt backing or I see a fun picnic table topper in that piece. Just a thought. Going over to check your blog now. Thanks for sharing! P.S. I would love to win that Aurifil thread. :-)

  6. Hi Jenny! My dominant scrap color...hm...I can tell you it is NOT blue. I definitely have a deficit in the blue department that I need to fix. I have quite a bit of green or variations thereof, so I guess that's my answer. PS-You have awesome scraps! :)

  7. My dominant colour would be blue. What a good idea for scrap use.

  8. Jenny, nice to see someone playing in the scrap pile! I always feel like a child jumping into a leaf pile - that same thrill comes from diving into a fresh pile of fabric scraps dumped on the floor.

    I try not to get a dominate color. When I see one color a little too much, I make sure it used a little more in the next project. Then I am content with my piles of color. But my favorite color is blue - and I have a hard time keeping an even amount of yellow and orange compared to the rest.

    Thank you for sharing with us today.

  9. I think that my green drawer is overflowing!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I like green, but my stash is blue dominate.thanks for the ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow - i think my dominant color of scraps is probably "nuetrals" - I seem to have bunches of whites, creams, tans, off-whites, and even blacks in various shapes and sizes. Cool idea - thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I do that with my scraps, too and make doll quilts from the piece. Works for me!!! My scraps are mostly red or that's what color the doll quilts end up.

    ReplyDelete
  13. My dominant scrap colour would be blue. Seeing your "fabric" that you made reminded me of a patchwork skirt that a girl in school used to wear (many years ago).

    ReplyDelete
  14. My dominant scrap color is black! It seems to make it's way into all of my quilts in one form or another..... Thanks for a chance to win the best threads ever!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a fun post :) My dominant scrap color has got to be pink ... pastel to bright ... with to little girls (4 and 6) pink is it in our house. Like the scrappy fabric idea. Thanks for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Green is my dominant scrap, and it's not even my favorite color. I posted at Jenny's blog, too. I'm so inspired to do this!

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's a tie between blue and red for my dominant scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I like blue and you can tell that from my scraps since that's my dominant color. Good idea you have of sewing the scraps together.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Fabulous scrap regeneration idea. I have far too much green, but that could be because I over estimated what I'd need for a queen size double Irish chain!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Neat scrap quilt pattern. My dominate scrap color would be blue, as that is my favorite color... :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. My dominate scrap color right now is pink--mainly because I cut a bunch of strips and didn't use them. Otherwise probably brights--turquoise in particular.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great piece of fabric, that was a good idea! I think the dominant colour of my scraps is red, love that colour :o)

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a fun idea! I would say my predominate color is red . . . thanks for the opportunity to win!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Yes, Please add me in the Giveaway. Everyone tells me this thread is super.

    ReplyDelete
  25. My scraps are mostly white and green. Just love these colours!
    Would love to try the threads!
    Best wishes

  26. I love how the scraps seem to become one when mixed together. This would make a lovely quilt:)

    My scraps tend to be blue lately.

    Now I have a good excuse for saving all those scraps, thanks for the idea!

  27. You will find purple and green in my scrap piles. Great idea to sew them into fat quarter size pieces... Now you got me thinkin' :-)
    I'm heading over to check out your suggested sites for more inspiration! Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  28. ..... and what fantastic designer fabric it is too...

  29. Can't get my scraps together long enough to decide on the dominant color. Just finished doing what you did with some of them, however, and now I have 2 mats to cover the tops of my washer and dryer.....

    ReplyDelete
  30. What a great idea for using up scraps. I think my most dominant colour would be blue...it's my favourite colour.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was surprised recently to see that blue dominates my scraps and my fabrics. I would never have thought it since it's not my favorite color!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Your "new" fabric turned out nicely. What will you make with it? A bag, a mug rug, a potholder, a pillow cover???

    My scraps are mainly blues and greens.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What a great idea to sew scraps together like that to make yardage... and I like the combo too!

    I would have thought that one of my favorite colors would have been my most plentiful scraps... but it's neutrals... I suppose I need to them more often!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I would say my scraps are mainly blues and greens, but I have a good amount of other colors thrown in. I have been quilting for 20 years and while I have saved a goodly amount of my scraps and given away others, I have not really used many. Your post sounds like a good way to use some.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Right now my dominant scraps are blue. But it changes as I work on other quilt projects. I usually have to buy neutrals. Like your idea of just sewing them together.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Scrap color - fushia/pinks

    But a question - How come after making 2 scrap lap quilts I have more scraps than I started? Just wondering.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Dear Jenny, Thanks for doing what I have been thinking to do. I have lately realized what a corner I have painted myself into with staid and almost serious color - beautiful fabrics but predictable. What a splash of color, fun, and abandon!!!

  38. Most of my scraps are yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the result of your scrap sewing. Really inspirational.
    Most of my scrap are blue, I'm a real blue-lover!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Your scraps look lovely sewn together. I'm trying to tame my blue scraps. They're outta control.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I would have to say blue at this stage - our guild are doing a lot of this "making fabric" and enjoying it immensely, and the results have been gorgeous. Your fat quarter looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I have a lot of scraps. When I send a box to a quilting friend, I don't pack it with paper or bubble wrap, I use scraps!!! I just grab a hand full from my bin and pack it in. I would say yellow is my dominant color right now.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I had to stop saving so many small scraps, I was running out of room. I am having a hard time picking a color in my scrap bin, it is multi-colored. Your "fat quarter" is something I shall try.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I've tried to not keep really small scraps any more, but my dominant color has to be blue.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Oooo, somebody else loves Kaffe fabrics, too! I was going to get rid of scraps when I straighted out my stash, but haven't done it yet. So what are you going to do with your new FQ? My predominant color would be red!

    ReplyDelete
  46. My dominant colours would be earth tones - browns and greens. Thanks for the great idea to tame the scraps

    ReplyDelete
  47. Blue is my favorite color...I also save all bits of fabric I think are large enough to use somwhere

    ReplyDelete
  48. I love my scraps. They are great for hexagons. Color I have the most of . . . right now it is greens.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I have made so many baby quilts lately my dominant scraps color is probably tipping the scales toward pink. Nice post. I like your blog too!

    ReplyDelete
  50. A shoebox full of scraps! I have bins full of scraps! I need all the encouragement I can get to use them up. I do love my scraps though. I'd say the color I have the most of is blue followed closely by red. Loved the post.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have a lot of blue and burgundy scraps. I love what you did with your scraps - it's beautiful. Making a few of these would make great gifts - and not cost additional money!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Green is my most common scrap color - it seems to be a secondary color in just about everything I've made.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have mainly blue scraps but green would be a close second. I love to work with my scraps and get so excited when I make something completely of scraps. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I have lots of Christmas scraps, having had some passed on to me, and lots of novelty scraps from sewing for my 4 yr old and his young cousins. I am determined to start a scrap project "one of these days!"

    ReplyDelete
  55. This is perfect. I've been quilting/crafting for over 25 years and about 10 years ago, I ended up putting away (as in boxes & bags) most of my fabric and then 3 years ago, I lost my crafting/sewing space. I have been going through them in the last few weeks (a bag or box at a time) and I've been washing & pressing them (okay, I still have more to press because it takes longer to press them than to wash them). But I was really concerned about the quantity. Now I know what I can do with them. As for my predominant color, I don't know, I still have too many bags & boxes to go through, however, I do have a great pile of denim!

  56. I love scraps- mine and other people's! Yours look so pretty, especially sewn together. My scraps are probably mostly blues, greens, and pink. however, since I go through them and use them for various projects, and those are some of my most-used colors, I might actually have fewer of those scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I wish my scrap pile was as little as yours LOL.
    My scraps are all different colors. Its time to sew them together as the container is "jammed".

    Would love to win some thread. Keep stitching

    ReplyDelete
  58. I would have to say green because I'm a green freak:) Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  59. Most of mine are blue because I love blue!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Looks like a lot of my scraps are red at the moment!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Green is the main color. I love working with scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am a scrap alcoholic. It's my confessions, tubs full I have. My favorite are the red ones!

    ReplyDelete
  63. My biggest scrap pile is civil war - I know that isn't a color, but love all things civil war - if picking a color, I would say red. I enjoy working with bits and pieces.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Myfavorite color is yellow so that is what I have the most scraps of. I love the idea of sewing all the pieces together to make a larger piece. When I saw this I started thinking about how beautiful that would be as a background for some really outstanding and large applique fun pieces. Thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Most of my scraps were red.. but I used them up making my hexagons for my hexie quilt.. so what is left is blues from an old quilt that I made.. a LONG time ago..

    ReplyDelete
  66. This was such a fun post! I love the piece of fabric that you made - it looks great! Having sewed for two sons and one daughter for eons, I don't think I have a predominate color, wait, let me look at this bin.....
    (Two hours later) Yes! Blue is the predominate color here! LOL
    Thanks for sharing a great way to use our scraps!

  67. I seem to have a lot of green scraps right now. Maybe I should sew them all together and call it a "St. Patricks table runner" or something!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I WOULD have said orange/reds and similar a few weeks ago, but I have been turning those into a quilt lately. Scraps are the BEST. Already paid for a low risk.

    Thanks for the chance at the thread, too.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I really love what you did with your scraps, and btw, what beautiful scraps you have! Great post. My scraps are all multi color, novelty, Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm planning to do a quilt in neutrals, so I'd have to say right now I have mostly creams, off whites, ecrus and beiges. I used to avoid these, but I think it is time for me to learn to work with them.

    ReplyDelete
  71. The majority of my scraps are blue. I have bins for all of my scraps that are the same size except for blue and it is a LARGE bin.

    ReplyDelete
  72. my scraps and blue....and red...and black in white....and greens. it seems I have an equal opportunity scrap bag. thanks for your post.

    ReplyDelete
  73. What a great question? Makes me want to run into the sewing room and check th scrap basket. I've completed several blue and white quilts lately. My guess is that I would find lots of blues. Thanks for the great post!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Every once in a while, I'll make a quilt totally from my scraps. I love it. Even though my stash is, um, substantial, I still love going through my scraps to make a quilt. Your quilt is great.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I have a big shopping bag full or orange scraps. Our little guild sponsors a challenge every January where prominent use of orange fabric is required. I save every scrap for miniatures--my favorite category in the challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I seem to have mostly green!

    ReplyDelete
  77. W O N D E R F U L article on using your scraps to make NEW material! With all my prized scraps - all mostly in the fall color (yes! that IS a color) I can see mak'n NEW MATERIAL for projects that are screaming for this type of media!

    Thank YOU for the kick in the butt! ;)

  78. My scraps seem to end up with either a lot of "brights" or a lot of "autumn" colors and I usually try to keep separate stacks, but I have been know to just grab and sew. Quite interesting to the eye when I do that as I always think the bright wins. Awesome thread. Judy C

    ReplyDelete
  79. Loved the post - thank you. Very inspiring. Most of my scraps are in the multi-shades of bright pink and orange blend of some type or other.

    ReplyDelete
  80. right now my scraps are mostly shades of red and black. But all are very "bright" colors or multicolored prints.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Blue definitely over whelms my scraps, that color has two baskets.

    ReplyDelete
  82. The dominate color in my scraps is blue at the moment. That is a great way to use of scraps and create "new" fabric at the same time!

    ReplyDelete
  83. I have more blues scraps that any other color, although green runs a close second.

    I am going to give your method a try!

  84. I love scraps and have mine organized by brights, darks and lights. I would have to say my light basket is the fullest.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I love to work with my crap sorry scraps too. You have a very nice pile of scraps and I like your scrappy quilt. I would say I have the most blue and green scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Seriously, I just emptied my (large) scrap basket to find out. I even asked my son's opinion...our conclusion? We can't tell a dominant color, 'cause everything's in there! Of course, my son pointed out that it needs more "Texas Ranger blue," but I think that was just a hint...

  87. Pink seams to be a dominant color for my scraps. Thanks for the opportunity to win!=)

    ReplyDelete
  88. I spent time sorting my scraps into various colours last summer and I seem to be fairly even in what I have but, the bag with my green fabrics seems to be the largest, followed by neutrals.

    ReplyDelete
  89. What a great way to use up scraps. My dominant color would be brights from kid's material. Thanks for doing this giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Great use of scraps....I love piecing like that....and you can do so much with the outcome! What a beautiful bag that would be!

    My predominant color of scraps would be the orange to brown range.....I use them in everything! Love orange! And I don't understand people who don't 'get' that!

    ReplyDelete
  91. I, too, sent off bags of scraps to my readers - and then one day when I saw a project like the one you showed here, I decided to sit and sew my scraps together and guess what? I didn't have enough! So off to the store to BUY scraps! Now I'm back in the scrap bizness and ready to make my own "fabric"...if only I had the time! xo, Nan

    ReplyDelete
  92. Good Morning! Newbie here...lol! IF I had any scraps to work with they would definitly be of the red arena as this is my favorite all-time color range! I do find this 'scrappy' quilt a wonderful idea as I am quite new at this and would not find this type of quilt so intimidating as it seems most all of the 'perfect' quilts I have seen and love. Great idea!!

    ReplyDelete
  93. What a lovely giveaway! I've always wanted to try that thread! I definitely have a lot of blue...lots!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I love what you did with the scraps. I will have to remember that.
    Most of my fabrics are pinks, blues, and greens as I sew for my little granddaughter, but my older scraps are pretty much all colors. I've tried to start collecting more usuable scraps for mug mats and such.

    ReplyDelete
  95. My dominant scraps would be blue, but I also have a lot of green.

    ReplyDelete
  96. What a great idea. I love the idea of making fabric out of fabric! Blue and pink is my dominant color. I made a lot of cloths for my girls and those were their favorite colors. I went to your blog, I really enjoyed it. Thank you for the give away.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I have twice as many blue and green scraps for some reason, I'm guessing that's because I have twice as much blue and green fabric to start with, are you seeing a pattern?

    ReplyDelete
  98. I think brown is my largest, but blue seems to be a very close second. As a matter of fact I am working on a string quilt right now to try to use up both colors. I have already made a King size one for our son & now am making one for our CA King bed. what a great idea, will have to try that as well very soon.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I have a lot of blue scraps. And red. It is probably a tie. I love Bumble Beans; thanks for a second site to check out!

    ReplyDelete
  100. My scraps are pinks and greens mostly.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Pink is probably my dominant ~ lots of scraps left over from little girls dresses and quilts :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. I would say most of my scraps are blue.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I have a lot of blue followed by red. I love red, white and blue together!

    ReplyDelete
  104. What a great idea for my scraps, it is lovely.

    My dominant colors seem to be oranges and reds, with blue coming in the rear!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I don't have a dominant color - probably because my collection of scraps was built from thrift store bags and I didn't pick the fabrics one at a time myself.

    ReplyDelete
  106. It seems that most of my scraps are blue, thanks in large part to fabric I inherited from my grandmother. I love your idea. I must try that!

    ReplyDelete
  107. different flowers are my 'color'. Started to make hexagons with them to make a supergreat quilt.....

    ReplyDelete
  108. 50/50 blues and greens, though have been using up a bunch of the blues in many mug rugs lately.

    Would love to win some thread, thank you for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  109. While I do not have many scraps, my mother does. And, she will let me "borrow". The predominant color is blue - though most are not quilting cottons. I like your idea of making fabrics. Curious about how you handle pressing the seams.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Oh Jenny you know me. Pink, pink pink! This is a lovely post -- good job using up your scraps!

    ReplyDelete
  111. Thank you for reminding me that I love to make my own fabric! That way you never waste a smidge of fabric, especially the ones you just love!! Great post!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Bright or bubblegum pink would be my dominant scrap, followed closely by apple green. A great post as I'm always looking for new ways to use up my scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  113. My main scraps are red and pink - my favs!

    ReplyDelete
  114. I would have to say green. I have a ridiculous amount of green fabrics in my stash. I really need to branch out more. Thanks for the great tip/tut and giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I love what you have done with those scraps - very inspiring. Mine would be nearly all pink!

    ReplyDelete
  116. I have too many scraps of all colors and all seem to be favorites, but love the idea and will have to try it...Liberating! Razzemtaz@aol.com

    ReplyDelete
  117. Your pieced quilt looks wonderful with all the different colors. I don't know if mine would turn out so well since I have so many different colors in my scraps. My predominant color is blue. I have probably twice as many blue pieces than anything.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I wanted to say that I like your scrap quilt. My dominate scrap color is red. I think it goes with everything.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Love working with scraps. Dominate color is green. The threads are beautiful.
    Happy quilting from Mary in Nova Scotia.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Hi Jenny, good to see you here--I was one of those lucky 5 to get some of your scraps! They've all been happily assimilated into my hoarde. :)

    My scraps are definitely heavy on the blues, so much so that I have two separate bags (hooray for Ziplocs...), one for aqua and one for true blues!

    ReplyDelete
  121. I can't believe it but it's BROWN...how did that happen? I better get shopping. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  122. browns turquoise seem to be what I have left.

    ReplyDelete
  123. I love scraps and different ways to use them. Thanks for another way I haven't seen yet.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Jenny I admit I've never tried this but I bet I could make a few fat quarters with my scraps. :) Thanks for posting - short it might be, but I learned something new today and that's what it's all about! blessings, marlene

    ReplyDelete
  125. I have lots and lots of greens. Thanks for a great post.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Reds all the way - need to find inspirational uses for all the scraps piled high in the closet

    ReplyDelete
  127. What a great idea, so simple and yet it wouldnt have occured to me to do it and let serendipity work its magic, so thankyou. Would make great banners using that fabric too wouldnt it!
    Think my own scraps tend to be shades of blue amd that thread looks just yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  128. I love the idea that from a pile came a piece of fabric. My color is Blue.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love to make scraps into fabric! I think my scraps have more blue than any other color.

    ReplyDelete
  130. I love scrap quilts. Most of my scraps are blue. Thanks for the giveaway.

  131. I am just getting started in the quilting business....that doesn't mean I don't have quite a bit of fabric as I have always thought about quilting! I need to sort fabric and someday I hope to have a stash. Great post.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Love it! I would keep sewing until I have enough for a quilt for our foster-child program. My scraps are predominantly brown.

    ReplyDelete
  133. I have quite a few blue/green scraps with browns mixed in. I really don't have that many scraps but I'm working on making more :)

    ReplyDelete
  134. I have many, many, many scraps --- and have used Bonnie Hunter's methods to divide and save them. When I look at them, I see the predominant color is green --- but, believe me, I have many other colors, too! Thanks for the opportunity to win some Aurefil thread --- it is my favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I save all of my scraps and I would say they are mostly pastel...thanks for the giveaway..

    ReplyDelete
  136. I don't think I could tell you the color of my scrap pile...I don't have much of a scrap pile yet and I sew in all different colors. I don't think there is a lot of yellow in that pile though since I'm not prone to yellow. Thanks for the lovely post and the giveaway! :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. This is my favorite thing to do when I'm not working on a specific project but feel the need to sew something. Grab a scrap and sew. I love it! I guess blue and green are tied for the most.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I love how all your scraps look so nice together! My scraps are predominantly blue, but I have a lot of pinks too! I may need to try the scrap sew game!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Love making blocks from scraps. I would say that green is my dominant color of my scraps.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Great post. Love your approach to using scraps. I've done this technique to line wicker picnic baskets, but really like how you used it to create blocks. Inspirational.

    My most predominate scraps - blue.

    I'm a newbie fan of Aurifil. Definitely would love to win more Aurifil thread, especially in hard to find fun colors.

  141. I have scraps of every size and colour, lots of them. I've been doing a bit of scrap quilting and fabric making a la Victoria. Probably I have more blues than anything else, but that isn't a reflection of what I use the most at all.

  142. I love the scrappy piece of fabric you created. I've done much the same thing off and on when the mood hits me. I'd have to say that most of my scraps would fall into the warm tones of red, orange, yellow. You wouldn't find much purple.

  143. I don't think there is any dominant colour - maybe red...?
    Loved the interview, thanks for posting!

  145. I tend to have multi colored scraps. I use a lot of color. I've found I have a lot of Christmas scraps from the Christmas quilt I'm still quilting! Oh well.

  146. I really love your scrappy fabric. I love making this kind of fabric, and am a regular at 15 Minutes Play, another of Victoria's blogs.

  147. Right now I would have to say RED! I'm working on a quilt with reds, black and a little white for my son. Grey, blue and black are creeping up in quantity though. Those colors are in the Batman quilt for my grandson :) Those Kaffee fabrics worked up great :)
