I May Have A Scrap Problem... But I'm In Therapy! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

Well, I didn't make "scrappy sewing" one of my New Year's Resolutions, but maybe I should have - because I have FINALLY been doing some fun scrappy sewing!

I'm working on the quilts for this year's tutorial series, String Therapy, so I grabbed my blue drawer of strings and a stack of white 5" squares that have been in my scrap drawer F.O.R.E.V.E.R.

This is the block I chose to make.  It's from a tutorial by Christina Cameli and wow is it a quick and easy scrap buster ...

KEEPING DOLLY COZY from That's Sew Kerry

Quilted Sleeping Bag

Quilted Sleeping Bag Tutorial:

1.When your baby sister asks Santa for 'blankets for Dolly' you do what you can to help the big guy out! There are several ways this can be done, this is simply the way I made them and thought you may find it useful if you have small people who also want to keep their Dolly warm.


All squares are 2.5 inches the amount you need will vary depending on the dimensions of the doll you are making for. Dolly is 18 inches tall and is similar to the American ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... No Sewing, But Lots of Inspiration! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

It's been a busy week of sewing, but not much on the scrappy front.  However, I did find some fabulous things hidden away on Instagram that I think are share-worthy (and drool-worthy!) so I'll let you see what you think.  And away we go!!!

First up is a beautiful 100-days project by Wendy of Pieceful Thoughts of My Quilting Life...

And here's another gorgeous plus quilt, this time by Joy (@TheMakingsofJoy).  Just a note, I think this is a nine-patch block rather than a true plus block.

This is a beautiful way to use up ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem - Inspiration! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's been a while since I had the time to post on Scrappy Wednesday, because I've been trying to get my quilt studio organized and set up.  But I've been seeing such a lot of fabulous inspiration on Instagram under the hashtag #scrapquilt that I think it's time to share some of them with you!  

Isn't this a beauty?  I think that it's a Jacob's Ladder variation, and I love the contrast of the darks and lights!

This is such a great way to use up solid scraps, and the small ...

Well, the holiday season has arrived, and with it more things to do than there are hours in the day!  So I haven't had time to do any scrappy sewing this week, but I did find some wonderful scrappy inspiration on Instagram, all of it designed to ring in the holiday season.....

A beautiful triple Irish chain in Christmas colors...

One of my favorite versions of the snowflake quilt that is floating around the internet these days!  I love the scrappy red background!

This quilt and the next are made by the same pattern, and both are ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Time For Some Inspiration! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

I hope you all enjoyed visiting Christina's blog last week - wasn't her tutorial fabulous?  I'm looking forward to making one of my own someday, if and when things ever slow down around here...

While traveling last week, I had a chance to wander around Instagram a while, and found some fabulous scrappy inspiration to share!  

How's this for a little low volume love?  I wish I had such a nice variety of low volumes in my stash!

I've never been tempted to do a Single Girl quilt before, but this scrappy version is ...
