Scrap Happy!

I'm participating in a new Flickr swap called Scrappy Swap

organised by Flutter from.Kat

(but more about her later)!

Besides sending scraps of fabric to my partner, I need to make a 'small scrap

inspired goodie'....

This is the first thing I have tried out...

A little thread catcher, perfect for catching all those threads while my partner is 

hand stitching!

Or maybe my partner might like this little mug rug....

And the binding is not that wonky in real life, trust me!

What would you choose, partner?

Kat, our Swap Mama, has requested help with her "Cheeky Quilt"....

and this is what I'm sending along!

No charm packs, jelly rolls, fat quarters or yardage were harmed during the 

making of this block!


What are you making from your scraps?

Happy days!



  1. Ohh lots of scappaliscious fun going on here!!

  2. Well whichever your partner doesn't want, I'm here!!

  3. Love the thread catcher! too cute!

  4. I LOVE your projects today Suz! That thread catcher is great & oh so useful and that mugrug is DEVINE!
    And well, thank you so much for my cheeky block! You rock!! I love it :)
    (and you are so fast!)

  5. got some good scrap!!! LOL! And I love the thread catcher and the mug rug! Everything is soooo colorful. And the block is simply fabulous....maybe there will be a cheeky quilt in your future!

  6. I wish I was your partner. I hope I am. You do scrappy so very very well.
    Love the cheeky quilt block.

  7. You make some really cute projects and I just love the thread catcher. Take care.

  8. I love both of those, especially the thread catcher! I also am catching up so have to say I love that block you made from the old magazine and your FW blocks are wonderful, time for me to get back to the farmer!

  9. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Scraps are the best! I need to get brave and join a swap one of these days.

  10. Awesome - love the thread catcher, so cute and an interesting shape. I'm trying to bust through some scraps with the Go Baby at the moment, but I always get carried away and start cutting into my stash to supplement - I really need to be hard on myself and impose a 'scraps only' rule on some of my projects. It's pointless when your scrappy project leads to you making more scraps!

  11. The thread cathers looks so happy! Well done :)
