a little vomit

scrap vomit in progress

Here we go again. SV part 4 is underway. It doesn't matter how many 2.5" squares I cut and use, my scrap box never seems to empty, maybe after I've finished this one I'll think of a different scrap quilt using 2.5" squares, but for now this is my go-to scrappy pattern, I love it, it makes me so happy and as boring as sewing all those squares together can be it's unbelievably satisfying too. A quilt made from leftovers is always good, isn't it?

I'm making a scrap quilt out of tumblers. Each scrap is different. It makes me so happy to see all of the different fabrics. Yes, scraps are good!

I have ordered solids for my SV part deux the other day! Raspberry and Pea pod! They are kind of addictive these SV quilts...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your SV quilts! I have one in the making but it had to be put aside. I can't wait to get back to it! I hope mine comes out as pretty as yours!

Elsa said...

I have that very same problem ~ I think those little scraps multiply and laugh thinking we'll get through them!
This quilt is turning out beautifully!

Marian said...

Love the flamingos. My scrap box never gets smaller either...I'll probably need to made 4 of these gorgeous SV quilts before I see a dent! Lovely blocks!

I love scrap quilting, so much more fun that following a pattern.

Karin said...

yes, love the scrap quilting! I have piles of 2.5'' squares cut for my hexie quilt - and when I'm done with the hexie top, I'll be making a scrap vomit quilt from the leftover squares I'm sure :)

I found some 2.5ers that I thought I lost - YAY!

TexPat said...

Love those blocks. They're just happy to look at! I need to get back to cutting 2.5s. I want to start my own SV quilt!.

Cherie said...

Loving the progress! Most of my scraps are triangular rather that square...will be interesting to use those up =D

Kristen said...

Lovely little scraps that make me think of summer when it will be wrapped around to snuggle with on a grey winter day.

Still need to get cracking on mine once I have scraps. ;)

I've got my granddaughter making her own little version of a scrap vomit/sampler quilt right now.

There is very little that makes me happier than using up the scraps!! It's amazingly satisfying, so I totally get where you are coming from!!

Claire said...

I've been cutting 2.5's today...I also found a bag of squares I cut a year ago and never used - I think a SV is in order!! My scraps are out of control - I Think I need to go at em and turn all into pre cut squares - may not seem so overwhelming!!!

Audrie said...

I've been cutting 2.5" squares and it has barely made a dent in my scrap bins. It's slightly mortifying.

Have been tidying out a built in wardrobe today (so we can knock it down and make a sewing space for ME!) and am ashamed by the huge numbers of bags of scraps I have. I must SV very soon.
