It's March - Scraptastic Tues/Wednesday Link Up

So I was talking with the lovely Jenny and Jenny at the Sussex Sewing Club in February - yes they are two different and wonderful girls!  We all expressed an interest in making a postage stamp quilt!  Crazy I know! 

Well I have lots of small scraps and think this will be the best way to use them up.  Not sure what everyone else's excuse is??

Chatting on Instagram with Dee and her plan to cut up 2 1/2" squares we agreed to 'meet up' on Tuesdays and cut our scraps whatever size was required with the hashtag #scrappytrimalong !  Everyone is welcome to join in - you know you want to - whether that be cutting or cheering along.

This will hopefully happen every Tuesday!  Little and often will certainly get it done!   As you can see it is working for me....

It's the second Tuesday of the month and that means that the Scraptastic Tuesday link is open. Please share your scrappy projects, in progress or completed or your tips for using or organizing your scraps.

Here are our fabulous Scraptastic Tuesday Sponsors and their buttons, feel free to click through and thank them for their support:

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.
Please join Leanne from 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.
  • This link is to share with our community about using your scraps, please don't use it to advertise your own products or events.
  • You can link up from your blog, instagram or flickr, but you have to link up to be entered in the prize draw.
  • 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.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to share with us this month.


  1. I love PS quilts and have exchanged "stamps" myself. The smaller the "stamp" the better! Have fun!

  2. OK, first of all, I love that you're using a pretty glass pitcher for a catch-all! I'm going to pull something nice out to do the same when I start precision-cutting my tiny scraps. I've been wanting to do an "Oh My God" type quilt based on 1" (CUT) pieces. It's probably going to be June before I finish enough urgent UFOs to start in on serious cutting for that. I also have more spring cleaning and organizing of my deep storage area to finish first, so that I have all my scraps in one place.

  3. Postage stamp quilts are some of my favorites. I recommend starting with a pull of fabrics and trimming. Have a secondary pull ready to sprinkle in. This has helped give my PS quilts lots of variety and maintain a theme. Excited to see what you create.

  4. I'm definitely going to join the trimming party, just need to clear my sewing table of all the stuff I've put on there to put away ;o)

  5. I'm at work on Tuesday and that's my excuse! I did start a project like this years ago and I think I donated the pile of scraps to someone! I'll cheer from the sidelines.


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