Fun With Scraps Book project

>> Thursday, April 20, 2023

I'm pleased to be helping a fellow quilt pattern designer release her new book. Katherine Curtsinger, of It's Only Fabric and Thread, has a new book full of projects to make with your scraps.The book is called Fun with Scraps.

From Katherine, " It is specifically written for use with scraps. Most of the quilts are block based and have sizing for baby up to bed size. The book also includes a sampler that uses blocks from each of the patterns and includes some other suggested quilt projects using blocks from the book. I really hope it inspires you to create using what you have!"

As luck would have it I was just finishing up an alternate version of my I Heart Churns quilt. I made it with the Sew Good fabric line from Fish Museum and love this line - I want to use every last bit! I reached out to Katherine and got busy scanning through all her pretty patterns to find one for the scraps I had left.

It wasn't easy! I wanted to make several of the quilts but I stayed focused on looking for one that I could use these scraps in. The pattern Drop Zone X fits the bill. It has large blocks with skinny pieces and I knew I would have enough scraps to make one block.

I like how the patterns give information for making only one block. So often when using scraps I need to change out fabrics from block to block so I like the option to make one block at a time.

The book also includes a sampler quilt using a block from each quilt in the book - another great way to try out the patterns and use up your scraps.

The instructions and diagrams helped me quickly cut and layout my block pieces. I loved the finished look of one block and knew I needed to keep this fun sewing themed block in my sewing room. With no comfy chair to plump a pillow on I did the next best thing - I made it a cover for my chair pad!

X marks the spot indeed :)

It makes me so happy to see this happy block when I sit down to sew.

I hope you enjoyed seeing the possibility of just one of the projects to make with your scraps in the new book, Fun with Scraps.
