Scraptastic Tuesday - March link up

Scraptastic Tuesday

I've been doing non scrappy things recently, so I quickly had to think what I could get started on to prove my scrappiness this month.

I have a background to make for a silly scrappy project, nick named Triffid - you might be able to see why....

It could be another quilt for Siblings Together as long as it will not scare a child!? 

Another reason to make a background from scraps is because my neutrals scrap box seems to be constantly overflowing onto the floor.   So it was obviously time to get busy with my rotary cutter and low volume scraps.

This is the result so far

Will it do as background for my silly Triffid!   What do you think?

It's the second Tuesday of March, so the Scraptastic Tuesday monthly link is open.

Now its time for you to share your scrappy projects, plans and ideas.

A huge thank you to our generous sponsors for providing the following prizes which will be awarded randomly among those of you who link up.
    • Massdrop - Sam and Mitzi Fat Quarter Bundle
    Please join Leanne at She Can Quilt and I by linking up a blog post or flickr or instagram photo sharing a scrappy project, in progress or finished, or your thoughts on dealing with your scrap mountain:
    • You don't have to have joined us before, everyone is welcome.
    • One link per person, and it will be your entry into the random draw for the prizes. It is the same link up here and at Leanne's blog - She Can Quilt - so you only need to link up on one of our blogs.
    • Please visit at least a few of the links, they are very inspiring, and leave comments too as everyone loves to connect. 
    • Use the Scraptastic Tuesday button and invite your friends to join us too. Please share our button, or a link or the hashtag #scraptastictuesday in your linked post or photo.
    • The link is open until next Monday night at 10:00 pm MST. We will announce the winners next Tuesday. 
    • If you have trouble linking up, let me or Leanne know and we will get you sorted.
    Wonder what Leanne has been up to?  A bit of paper piecing perhaps - in which case her scraps will be paper rather than fabric....I think you should go and check it out!


    1. I LOVE your Triffid! Can't wait to see where you take it next!

    2. Are you going to appliqué that monster down? It is kind of monstery, but terrific!

    4. I'm interested to see how the triffid looks on (in?) the background as I think it's going to be fabulous!

    5. I don't think Triffid is scary but cute. I'll think twice if it disappears from your wall one day.

    6. I love the triffid- what a fun project! I bet a wee boy will have a great time creating an epic adventure involving this plant!

    7. Very fun looking quilt! Looks like you're enjoying this.:)

    8. this is really cool ! I love how all the background is unified by the one bold print running through it - or at least that's how it looks to me.

    9. I love your "silly, scrappy project!" It looks huge, colorful, playful. Can't wait to see the next steps.

    10. I hope I have correctly added myself, Withoutpins, and I've managed to put a link in my blogpost. I love scrap projects and it's great to be able to see what everyone is doing!

    11. I think it's fantastic, and not scary. Unless you're a fly, or have seen Little Shop of Horrors at an impressionable age.


    Hello, I'd really like to hear from you...
