Island Batik March Challenge - Scrapbuster from Sew Preeti Quilts

The March 2021 Island Batik Challenge is to make a Scrapbuster Quilt.

Scraps and Squirrels from Sew Preeti Quilts

Picture the scene at the end of the party.  Empty bottles, missing silverware, dirty dishes, stained carpet, mess everywhere and you don't even know where to begin.


Scraps Explosion



Half Made Blocks


The Rainbow Scrap Challenge feels like a party and it IS a lot of fun...till you get to this time of the year.

Framed Jewel Blocks (Light Borders)
