1QFAL: My Scraptastic Year begins!

If you know me at all, you know I don't do scrappy. Well, I do very controlled scrappy. I'm too OCD or something to venture into the crazy postage stamp, random world of Red Pepper Quilts and Crazy Mom Quilts. Love their work. But I've always been worried my poor little brain will fritz out if I try.

Well, I'm risking the fritzing. This girl is going scrappy this year. The ginormous bins of random scraps might have been a big motivator for me.

With that in mind, here is my list of what I'd like to accomplish this quarter:

Four Patch Star

Dark and Twisty

Flowering Snowball (after I fix all those dark orange pieces that are too close together!):

Ruby Grannies

Mama Said Sew D4

Posy Jewel Box

Capri Blossoms

HGL Nines and Snowballs

I Love Lucy Churn Dash

Quite Contrary Kaleidoscope

Flower Maxi

Double Eights

Flying Four

Kaleidoscope Flower

Silk Tie Pillow covers

Pleated Zipper Pouches

Feed Co. Weekender

Hobbes Softies (because we will have a Calvin and Hobbes party on Leap Day this year!):

And my almost finished temple bag. Just have to put in the lining (needed a smidgen more fabric for that!).

And my scripture bag. My husband bought me new scriptures this past fall, and they need their own pretty bag.

And a Valentine's Mini, because my walls look so very sad after Christmas comes down.

And two cute little Valentine's Pillows, because, well, just because! I can't wait to show you what I plan on embroidering on them - we don't do traditional love stuff around here!

And that's all. Ha. All. A whole lot of busy, but it's winter and what else is there to do but stay warm and sew?!


  1. Wow! You have a full plate there! I can't wait to see your creations!

  2. Yike! Looks like it's going to be a crazy year! Good luck on the scrappiness :)

  3. Wow you are going to be one busy lady, good luck with all of it!!

  4. lots of pretties on that list!

  5. WOW! That is ambitious! I am hoping to finish my granny square quilt- I used Scrumptious!

  6. I think your scraps are very nice and blend well together. Mine are more crazy pieces, the kind that don't blend well. Yours are nice. It's going to be a busy time. I'm looking forward to seeing your quilts!

  7. Well i'm sure you'll have that all done by february!

  8. That is a lot! Good luck with your list.

  9. Would be great if you could add a link to this page on every post you are linking to FAL - makes it easier for your FAL host to check that list! And is one of those rules to be included in the prize draw...thank you!
