  • C. I have no idea what these shapes? might be, I always mean to cut them and store by color as I finish a quilt, but it never happens.

    —CAROL NELMS on October 8, 2018
  • My scraps are a big jumbled mess, in all sorts of shapes and sizes. A few years ago I promised myself that I would start cutting and organizing them according to sizes, but that plan just never came to fruition…I’d rather be quilting that organizing scraps I guess 😉

    Monique on October 8, 2018
  • Every size: strips, rectangles, odd pieces, anything bigger than an inch gets saved in two big tubs! I love fabric!

    —Judi Rizzo on October 8, 2018
  • After finishing a project I cut the leftover fabric into squares–whatever I can–2 1/2, 3 1/2, 4 1/2, 5 1/2 and 6 1/2–and keep them in separate baggies. Whenever I feel like sewing something scrappy, it makes it so much easier!

    —Carmel Hines on October 8, 2018
  • C. I sort by color, not shape, so I have no idea what most of them would be called.

    —Janet G. on October 8, 2018

    —Ruth on October 8, 2018
  • I have a combination of scraps. I found a little bit of time to cut some of my scraps into rectangles & squares & strips, but I have a full garbage can full of all kinds of shapes waiting for me to trim into shapes. The problem is they multiply at night….

    —Janet on October 8, 2018

    —Laura on October 8, 2018
  • Strips and squares

    Deb Graczyk on October 8, 2018
  • When I finish with a piece of fabric and it’s small enough to be called a scrap, it goes into its jar, by colour, to wait for a specific project. I also collect 2.5” strips. I tried cutting them into shapes before storing them, but they never seemed to be useful to me. I think my stash is too eclectic for that. I LOVE scraps!

    —Nyla-Jean on October 8, 2018
  • What beautiful quilts. My scraps are a mixture of all three. Book & scraps would be a fun win!

    —Jan on October 8, 2018

I have a lot to organize. I love the patterns in this book. It would take care of a lot of my scraps. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Judy W on October 8, 2018
  • I have the wildest "set" of scraps! Some of everything. I put them by colors in buckets on their sides in a shelf with 9 "pockets." That way, I can grab a bucket by color and see what I have to use for a certain project. If I don’t have the right scraps, I go to one of my daughter’s scrap collection! Between the three of us, we can make almost anything!!! We might lack orange. It just isn’t something we tend to buy when shopping.

    —Marianne N Springer on October 8, 2018
  • Strips and aquares

    —Betti on October 8, 2018

    —KIM Jenning on October 8, 2018

    —Carolyn Sefkow on October 8, 2018
  • Triangles and rectangles are my favorite especially now that there are many plastic templates you can use on your irregularly shaped scraps.

    —Regina Harris on October 8, 2018
  • Most of the time I cut my scraps into squares. I have them sorted by size. I do have some triangles. I try to sew HST as I trim them from blocks.Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Julie B on October 8, 2018
  • Most of my scraps are strips and squares and kept randomly according to modern and traditional so I can sort through them for that surprise inspiration. Larger pieces are folded and put back in my stash by color.

    —Jackie on October 8, 2018

    —Kris Sage on October 8, 2018
  • Well – my scraps would probably be called a "mess" of all kinds of "scraps" not particularly organized in any shape, size or form.
    But it works for me 🙂 I would love to win this book as I have always wanted to try a Lone Star, but have been afraid to tackle it. Maybe I could do it with this book !

    —Judy Casteel on October 8, 2018
  • I have tons of just small irregular pieces and lots of strips. I adore the pink lone star quilt!! I want to hug it!!
    All the quilts from the book are beautiful!

    —Mary Freeman on October 8, 2018

    —Robin Dempsey on October 8, 2018
  • My scraps are sorted into squares/strips of 2, 2.5, 3.5, 5, and 6 " and then into light and dark drawers for each.
    I love the look of this and the video was fabulous.

    —Vickie on October 8, 2018
  • I have more strips in my stash of scraps. I have them arranged by color so I can easily find what I need. I would love to win Oh, Scrap! to help me use up more of these scraps in my stash. Thanks.

    —Ann West on October 8, 2018
  • Strips & squares for sure – although some of them are so big they perhaps don’t qualify as scraps!

    —Cathy B. on October 8, 2018
  • Beautiful quilts in this book. I am trying a new method of strips and squares. A local quilter gave a seminar at our LQS about her method to use up similar sized scraps by placing them all cut up in a small plastic container. Once it’s full, make a scrap project. I will give this a try…..for a while!!

    —Anne Mc on October 8, 2018
  • I have bags of scraps that are mostly squares and rectangles. I’m really wondering what to do with this color wheel of fabric.

    —Paula on October 8, 2018
  • I have Lissa’s book and love the inspiration! My scrap stash is mostly the first two options…squares and strips, triangles and rectangles. My go to shape is a 2 inch square but at the moment I’m piling up a ton of triangles I’m cutting off the pieces I’m making. They are matched up and ready to be sewn together for some fun half square triangle mini.

    —Loris Mills on October 8, 2018

I currently live in South Dakota where the Lakota Sioux give star quilts as gifts at funerals, life celebrations and happier occasions. They give star quilts in place of the buffalo robes which were given earlier in their culture. The quilts are a symbol of respect and celebrate life’s challenges and accomplishments.

  • I have so many scraps that all the descriptions you offered are what I have! But if I had to choose a description, I’d say I have more squares than anything – perfect for making scrappy quilts!

    —Barbara Dillingham Moore on October 8, 2018
  • Odd shapes! I have just is what left over. And I do have a collection of triangles that have been cut off from an assortment of quilts!

    —Inger on October 8, 2018
  • So many scraps. So many shapes. So much organizing to do. It intrigues me when a scrappy quilt is so coordinated. I love the Splendid Scraps and Firecrackers quilts!

    —Barbara on October 8, 2018

    —Carol duffy on October 8, 2018

    —C Davis on October 8, 2018
  • I have all shapes and sizes in my statsh but I cannot work with tiny pieces so It has to be at least 2 1/2 inches for me to keep. Test gets recycled for a friend that stuffs animal beds for shelters

    —Ruth on October 8, 2018

    —carol-anne mandel on October 8, 2018
  • I have been saving strips (all different sizes), each in their own container. Then I have a container of mishmash sizes, shapes of strips, etc. as I am doing a random strip quilt. Everyone I know, seems to be doing something with their strip stash. FUN

    Barb H. on October 8, 2018
  • All of the above! My room is full of scraps just waiting to find their place to shine.

    —Robin on October 8, 2018
  • I know I have lots of squares and rectangles but there are lots of other things too.

    —Pamela Jones on October 8, 2018

  • My scraps are all sizes and shapes — who knows what they are called.

  • Strips and squares. This book inspires me to dig them out!

    —Sheila Beins on October 8, 2018

    —Ramona G Monoskey on October 8, 2018
  • I have plenty of strips, squares and rectangles but also quite a bit of what shape is that! I have made three scrap quilts recently and haven’t made a dent in my scraps.
    Thanks for the chance to win this book-it looks wonderful.

    —LynneP on October 8, 2018
  • I like applique on most of my quilts, so I do not cut up a scrap until I need it. There might be some cut off triangles somewhere, but that would be the closest to cut scraps that I own.

    —Janet T on October 8, 2018
  • I have so many scrap shapes that I can’t begin to list them. Thanks to my Accuquilt Go Big electric cutter, I just keep cutting and piling into boxes, hoping for many charity quilts. Much thanks to my husband – 50 years next month – for his many hours of cutting for me, even though he wastes a lot of fabric that I could’ve used for other shapes if he placed the dies better.

    —Roz Agulnik on October 8, 2018
  • What beautiful projects! I primarily have strips and squares in my stash. I love scraps of any shape or size!

    —Becky Bynum on October 8, 2018

    —Cindy Baucum on October 8, 2018
  • A lot of all different sizes! Can’t throw any fabric away!

    —Susan on October 8, 2018

  • C and I have so many I don’t think I will live long enough to use them all!!!!

    —Marilyn on October 8, 2018
  • I primarily have 2-1/2″ strips. There are quite a number of other size strips. These always come in handy when i need a small piece of fabric to fill a small spot. I would love the bag of scraps and the book. I am always looking for books about scrap quits. They are my most favorite kind of quilt to make.

    Kemper Sears on October 8, 2018

    —Elizabeth Bolton on October 8, 2018
  • My scraps are every shape possible as I repurpose clothing constantly. But my purchased ‘scraps’ are FQs and strips. My LQS sells batik bits by the inch, and I’ve found thm irresistible. I love the look of this Lone Star quilt. It’s on my list of quilts to do.

    —Vickie Devore on October 8, 2018

    —Marilynn on October 8, 2018
  • Strips and squares. I have already made two granny square quilts for friends, and a large scrappy quilt for our bed and I swear they must be multiplying as the pile never seems to get any smaller. Thanks for the chance

  • They are all in my stash! However, I do have more strips & squares! Lissa’s scrap bags look awesome and I know the "Oh,Scrap!" book is great!

    —Kathleen Dalecio on October 8, 2018
  • If I win, you don’t need to send me more scraps! I have all of the above! A huge bag of not cut yet, as well as those trimmed to a usable size. They accumulate rapidly and seem to reproduce like coat hangers in the closet. No matter how I use them, they produce more scraps. Love the video for the lone star quilt. It’s on my bucket list, along with a double wedding ring. If I win, you don’t need to send me more scraps!

  • I’ve got all types of scraps…one shoe box full of strips, a small box of 5″ squares, a small box of 2.5″ squares, a big Rubbermaid tote full of "larger" pieces (fat 8th’s, trimmings, etc.) Anything 1/4 yard or larger goes on shelves. I have a full Rubbermaid tote just of flannel. any packaged strip sets and bundles goes in the tall file cabinet.
    I may have a problem…I may be a fabric hoarder. At least it’s a somewhat organized chaos.

    —Teri N on October 8, 2018
  • I have absolutely every size and shape imagineable in my stash. Some organized and some waiting to be cut for organization. I am slowly and gradually working at my goal of making scrap quilts from my stash. I have even started a Scrappy Sisters small group in my guild where we encourage one another to share/use what we have to make beautiful quilts! And it is working for me. This book would definitely be more encouragement for our group.

  • I have scraps of all different shapes and sizes – but I don’t throw anything away – absolutely love the scrap quilt books. These quilts are beautiful. I would make several of them. Thank you for the chance. If I don’t win I will definitely buy.

    Debra Ellis on October 8, 2018

    —Linda Voltz on October 8, 2018
  • I have mostly irregular shapes, since I haven’t yet organized my scraps. Also, I’m afraid to cut them up. I might need larger pieces.

  • I do have some squares, cut up and ready to go for my next I Spy quilts, but mostly I have bits and pieces in all sizes and shapes, including bonus triangles from bindings. My plan is to start to implement the Bonnie Hunter Scrap Users system, but so far that hasn’t happened. The scraps are sorted by warm and cool colours, neutrals, Christmas, and batiks – but that’s as far as it goes, at this point. A book like this could inspire me!

    —Carol on October 8, 2018
  • I have a big mix of straps, strips, squares, half-square triangles, big hunks, and orphan blocks! I love to make scrappy quilts!

    —Jean Blythe on October 8, 2018

    —Jenny on October 8, 2018
  • Triangles & rectangles! I love fat quarters!

    —Susan Spiers on October 8, 2018

    —Thriftyredhead on October 8, 2018

    —Vicki Sprain on October 8, 2018
  • I had a ‘scrapalanch’ recently – bags tumbled off the top shelf where I stored my scraps – decided it was high time to sort some out – spent 2 days (with help from 6 year old grand-daughter who loves sorting) cutting up scraps and putting into cardboard boxes by size – masses of squares ranging from 2.5 inch up to 10 inch – next project? Make a scrappy quilt to use them up, before I have a ‘boxalanch’ with attendant possible injury …

    —Liz Carter on October 8, 2018
  • I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY ARE CALLED,I AM TRYING TO LEARN TO DO PICTORTORIAL QUILTS THAT MEANS MATCHING THE COLOR BLEND OF THE FACES OR OBJECTS I AM USING!!!!!

    ANGELA PRINGLE on October 8, 2018
  • I’d say half strips and squares and the other half are larger, odd shaped pieces.

    —kraftykc on October 8, 2018
  • I have all my scraps organized by color. I’ve made one strip piece quilt, but have lots more scraps to use up! This book would be great to have for more patterns on using up scraps!

    Loraine B on October 8, 2018
  • Definitely more strips and squares in floral designs.

    —Nancy Pontious on October 8, 2018

    —NANCY E JENEMA on October 8, 2018
  • Rectangles.

    —Dixie on October 8, 2018
  • I don’t usually keep my scraps. I donate them for dog beds at the shelter.

    —Barb Walsh on October 8, 2018
  • I have all sizes, colours and shapes of scraps. I obviously need to follow some of the ideas above and get more organized! (-:
    How great would it be to be able to just start with precut and sorted scraps! 😆

    —Paula on October 8, 2018
  • Strips and squares. Ready anytime they’re needed!!!

    —Teri D. Gailey on October 8, 2018
  • I have the most strips and squares- which seem to multiply overnight! What creative projects are in store for those boxes waiting for the right spot in my next quilt~

    —Karen on October 8, 2018
  • Mostly strips and squares by design — that is because I try to pick my scrap projects out before I have the scraps so I know what I need! However, I also love saving triangles leftover from "sew and flip" cuts!

    Vivian on October 8, 2018
  • I have all sizes, all over….yet I am always saving everything!! I do have some sorted into HST, strips and civil war scraps and REDS. Love scrappy quilts.

    —Sharon on October 8, 2018
  • I have all kinds of shapes. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Lisa on October 8, 2018
  • I am an absolute sucker for scrap bags. I just came home from my mini-group with a bag of batik strips that one of the ladies brought. And it’s not as if I don’t have enough scraps of my own. In fact, I am trying to get them organized and cut into uniform sizes — mostly strips and squares. It seems the more I organize, the more scraps I have!

    —Melissa Gerber on October 8, 2018
  • I have lots of scraps of different sizes. Can’t throw away fabric!

    —Susan on October 8, 2018

  • I have many different shapes not just one kind

    —Theresa on October 8, 2018
  • I have mostly squares and strips. I use my go cutter when my scrap basket is full and then I have them organized by color and size. This has made sewing practice blocks and scrap quilts so easy! You can never have too many scraps!!!

    —Kathy Timmons on October 8, 2018
  • Mine tend to be all different shapes, sizes and colors. It would be hard to put them into a category.

    —Betsy on October 8, 2018
  • My scraps come in all colors, shapes and sizes. I try to organize by size. I would be delighted to win Oh, Scrap!

    —Shellie on October 8, 2018
  • I have lots of different sizes of scraps because I never know what sizes I will be needing

    —Diane Quenzer on October 8, 2018

    Siobhan on October 8, 2018

    I have no idea what most of the shapes I have are called!

    —Linda A Foust on October 8, 2018
  • Can’t throw any big/little pieces…squares, rectangles, triangles, "V" shape, etc. away…just know they can be sewn together to create a scrappy table runner, table topper, placemats or perhaps a small quilt for a little one.

    —Jan W. on October 8, 2018
  • I definately do not what shape you would call my scraps. I save everything that is over about 2 inch square and my scraps are in all different shapes and sizes. Then I sort them by color. I love to pull scraps so that I can make blocks. The scrappier the better is what I say.

    —Angela Bowling on October 8, 2018
  • Lots of strips and chunks. Love to make scrap quilts.

    —Karen Keeler on October 8, 2018

    —Linda Ahn on October 8, 2018

    —barb on October 8, 2018

    —Deb on October 8, 2018

    .

    —Kathy on October 8, 2018
  • My scraps are an assortment–reproduction, brights, designer collections. I have and love the book, O Scraps!, and if I win the free copy I would be thrilled to gift it to a friend which seems what quilting is all about. Sharing knowledge and the fun of quilting with friends. Enjoy!!

    —Kathy G on October 8, 2018
  • I am trying to cut leftovers into 1 1/2”, 2”, or 2 1/2 “ squares to make a quilt. But have lots of strings and chunks too! You could also find bags of triangles trimmed from previous quilts. In essence I guess I have all the shapes!

    I love the scrappy Lone Star. Might have to try that one!

    —Carol Schon on October 8, 2018
  • When I have time, I cut up my scraps into strips or squares.

    —Katherine K Morvay on October 9, 2018
  • I store my scraps by color. There are many sizes and shapes, most in rectangles and squares. My rule of thumb is that once the bin begins to overflow, I commit to either giving some away or using it. It’s my way of managing the madness!

    —Gina S. on October 9, 2018
  • My scraps are of no name! I will spend time to cut strips or squares, sew half squares and cut them to a usable size, but that only happens when I really don’t feel inspired to make any particular project, yet want to work with fabric!!!

    —Tammy Ahrens on October 9, 2018
  • I have scraps of all shapes and sizes and colors. Even fabric from my early days of quilting. It would be great to be able to use them in a quilt. Thanks for the chance to win

  • I have no idea what most of the shapes I have are called! Haha! I have sooo many scraps, I probably could make a dozen quilts!

    —Susan Torrington on October 9, 2018
  • All the above. Could use some extra ideas to use them up.

    —Maureen Elsey on October 9, 2018
  • I have no idea what shapes my scraps might be, I try to leave the biggest, most usable types. 👍🏻😊

    —Jane Baer on October 9, 2018

    —Ellee on October 9, 2018
  • I have mostly strips and squares but also have a large npbin of odd cuts.

    —Pat on October 9, 2018
  • I have my own scrap saver system with which I save squares, rectangles, strips and strings. Scrappy blocks are the best! This book is just wonderful! I hope to be able to make them all. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy, and more scraps would be heavenly.

    —Sherry on October 9, 2018
  • My scraps are every shape and size.

    —Joy B on October 9, 2018
  • I have a wide assortment of strips, squares and assorted weird shapes which I keep meaning to get recut into organized pieces. Love scrap quilts and stars so would love to win

    —Wendy B on October 9, 2018
  • My scraps are all sorts of sizes, shapes, colors, and patterns. They go into a tote container and when I have a project calling for scraps.. I muffle through them to see what I need or can use when a project comes along.I tired organizing them in a rolling cart/draws.. Just too many scraps to fit into draws and the would fall out easily.

    Judy Dziadosz on October 9, 2018
  • I use all of the scraps as long as the size is right. I have trouble parting with anything larger than 2”!. Love your scrappy quilts!

    —Linda on October 9, 2018
  • I would call what is in my scrap bin "bits and bobs". They are the leftovers I haven’t gotten around to trimming down. I try to keep the strips and sized squares and other pieces in their specific bins. That way when I want to create something, I’ve already got something cut ready to go & sew!!

    —Susan Burney on October 9, 2018
  • I have strips, squares and triangles as well as snippets. I have the strips sorted by size and shapes sorted so that when I need specific pieces I can find them more easily. I keep my smallest pieces separated in gallon plastic bags specifically for mini quilts.

    —Gloria Albright on October 9, 2018
  • I have no idea what most of the shapes I have are called! However, I have a majority of them separated by color!

    —Fireside Quilter on October 9, 2018
  • Most of my scraps are in strips or squares. I do have a smaller collection of odd shapes, but often trim them down to a squares or rectangles; or make pinwheels.

    —Nancy N on October 9, 2018
  • Scraps of all sizes — I can’t throw fabric away!

    —Susan on October 9, 2018
  • Squares and rectangles for sure, mainly I cut scraps into these shapes when there are small odd sized pieces, and because I have been hand piecing a 1 inch postage stamp quilt having scraps in squares and rectangles make it easier to cut more 1 inch pieces when I need them. Thank you

    Deb on October 9, 2018
  • Lots of strips but also other shapes. I give most of my scraps to a friend who quilts for Project Linus, but I do keep the ones that are really special to me. This looks like a great book, thank you for the giveaway.

  • I have a lot of scraps but not in a certain shape so I wouldn’t know what thay were called

    —A.Bouwman on October 9, 2018
  • My scraps are a big tangled mess in several huge storage bags. I always intend to start one of the scraps saver methods but never make it to the finish line.i wish the scrap fairy would come do it for me!

    —Mary Ann Scanlon on October 9, 2018
  • Strips and blocks and also just stacks and stacks of folded fabrics!

    —Linda on October 9, 2018
  • Let’s just call them "polygons"

    Kristin on October 9, 2018
  • My scraps are very organized. When I’m done with a project left over fabric gets cut into strips or squares. The squares are organized by size and color. The strips are just by size. I’m a bit OCD however it’s good when I want to start a project I can start with what’s in my scrap stash and use them up.

    —Sandra Smith on October 9, 2018
  • I have lots of scraps. I keep them organized by strips and squares in a variety of sizes. It makes them easier to use when i need to stay a new project.

    —Sandra Smith on October 9, 2018
  • My scraps tend to be blocks of fabric – like a 1/8th yard of a leftover piece. I also have many 2 1/2″ strips left over from bindings. Often (because I tend to gravitate towards similar colors)I will have a scrappy color theme binding which gives a interesting finish to the quilt.

    —Lynn D'Arcy on October 9, 2018
  • Most of my scraps are strips and squares. Thanks, Lissa, for your wonderful new book of scrappy quilts.

    —Nicole Sender on October 10, 2018
  • The majority of mine have no shape. They are left overs waiting to be cut in the shape needed for a future quilt. This book sure provides some great scrap quilts!

    —Connie F on October 10, 2018

    —Debby T on October 10, 2018
  • Strips and blocks and a few oddballs!

    —Alice on October 10, 2018
  • Strips and squares, and anything that can’t be cut into a "useable" square or rectangle counts as strings, which go in their own bin! Would love to win this book.

    —Lill on October 10, 2018
  • My load of scraps sure too many to describe in shape. I do however, sort them by color at least once a year.

    carolyn s. on October 10, 2018

    —Helen LeBrett on October 10, 2018
  • My scraps are definitely in the strips and squares category! I love the photos from the book!

    —Chris Johnson on October 12, 2018
  • My scraps are made up of numerous shapes and sizes.

    —Sheila on October 12, 2018
  • My scraps are every size and shape imaginable. I love to make scrap quilts so I only buy small quanties of fabrics and just cut what I need as I go and the rest goes back into one of the plastic buckets I use to store fabrics. I have a lot of fun looking through my stash when I start a new quilt and seeing what pieces I have that are large enough to cut the pieces that I want.

    —Janet Naugle on October 12, 2018
  • I have all kinds of shapes in my scraps. I use them constantly to make different things. Would love the Scrap book.

    —Mary Lindberg on October 12, 2018

    —Carolyn Kitterer on October 12, 2018

    —Carol on October 12, 2018
  • I’m addicted to scraps! Love the look of the quilts that Lissa makes. Most of my scraps consist of several sizes of squares. Perhaps I should start cutting strips too! Her video is great!

    —Marge Reeder on October 12, 2018
  • Definitely strips. I have a few containers of varying sizes. Thanks!

    —Lisa Timmer on October 12, 2018

    —Martina Kupitz on October 12, 2018
  • I have bags and boxes of ALL kinds of scraps! Oh Scrap!!!

    —Rosalie on October 12, 2018
  • I have every shape imaginable! Large, small, and in between. I love the scrappy look in quilts, and cannot throw away even the smallest pieces!

    —Sharon on October 12, 2018
  • I think I am at the stage in quilting that my entire stash could be called scraps. I try not to buy any more fabric but to no avail. The sizes range from 1inch to a couple of yards. The 1 inch ones are from making quilt ‘pictures’ by copying counted cross stitch designs with fabrics.

    —Mary Swanz on October 12, 2018
  • Oh the scraps! Yeesh! So many. The ones that have been cut are in squares and strips, but there is quite a mishmash of scraps that are waiting to be cut… into anything. They’re a bit of a mess right now, but I know they’ll be awesome when they become part of a quilt!

    —Sherryl Wynne on October 12, 2018
  • My scraps are random sizes and shapes. I’ve cut a few into squares and strips, but not very many. It’s a long term project which I will work on bit by bit when I don’t have the energy to do anything requiring concentration.

    —Susan MacLeod on October 12, 2018
  • I save them all, you never know when just that piece is needed!

    Lorie on October 12, 2018

    —Irene G. on October 12, 2018
  • I have a lot of different size pieces and strips in m stash. I often sew some to make mug mats for friends. I met a lady who bought a bag of my scraps at a sale and said she pieces them as a relaxing thing to do at the end of the day. She makes them into a quilt and donates them to a shelter for survival animals. When a piece is too small she keeps it for her daughter who is confined to a wheelchair and she creates mini quilts for dollhouse collectors! It’s so rewarding to see where all scraps can be used.

    —Alfreda on October 12, 2018
  • I have no idea what most of the shapes of my scraps are called. I just can’t seem to throw a scrap away.

    —Judy B on October 12, 2018

    —Sherri on October 12, 2018
  • I have all sorts of scraps. I am currrntly cutting them into 2.5” squares and 5” squares. Also strips of whatever size I have. If they’re cut already I probably would be more apt to use them for a quilt. I think scrappy is my fav type of quilt!

    —Sherri M on October 12, 2018

    —Diane on October 12, 2018
  • I try to cut smaller scraps into strips or squares, then sort them together according to size. Then they are ready to go when I have a scrappy project. In a way, I am making my own charm squares and jelly rolls.

    —Lorrie Potts on October 12, 2018

  • I have no idea of what I have and I have many.

    —Mary on October 12, 2018
  • I put all my reasonable sized scraps into a bin, and then every so often while watching a movie or tv, I’ll cut them into the biggest usable sized square or strip that I can.

    —Kerry Davidson on October 13, 2018
  • A little bit of everything! Thanks for the chance to win this great book.

    —anna on October 13, 2018
  • All of the above, boxes of strips, squares, random pieces, bags of scraps. I have two scrap quilts in progress with more in my mind.
    How will I ever use them up.

    —Ruth Spencer on October 13, 2018
  • I do sort of have my scraps sorted by color (well mostly) but there all sorts of sizes and shapes thrown in the clear shoe boxes I store them in. I always think I am going to cut them into particular sizes and shapes but then I never know what kind of quilt I might want to make next so it never happens. your book looks really interesting.

    —Wendy Bynner on October 13, 2018

    —JLouise on October 13, 2018
  • All of the above. I do maintain an organization to my different sized squares and my long strips are in one container; but that ends with the rest of my fabric scraps. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Carmen Rowan on October 13, 2018
  • I have no idea of the shape, I keep scraps of Kim Diehl’s fabrics so when I need 1” squares I can use scraps!

    —Renae Williams on October 14, 2018
  • I’d have to say that mine would be a mix of squares and triangles. It really is hard to bin any piece of fabric that could become a filler in a scrappy quilt.

    —Sue on October 14, 2018
  • Mostly strips and triangles ready for sizing. I try to use up collections for small projects and then move leftovers to shoe boxes if small or back to the stash.

    —Louise Mease on October 14, 2018
  • I love scrappy quilts, so my scraps are made up of anything and everything bigger than an inch. I have 2 big drawers full, one for lights and one for darks. But then, you’ll find them in other bags and boxes, too!!
