Scrap Magic

I am linking up with Kim of Kim's Big Quilting Adventure for the kick-off of Scrap Basket Sunday. Here is what I have so far - scraps paired for 20 - 9 patch units. The amazing thing about scraps is they multiply like rabbits. I cut and cut yesterday only to wake up this morning to find I seem to have more scraps than I started with. Go figure!

For a couple of years I have watched from afar the Schnibbles quilt along sponsored by Sinta of Pink Pincushion and Sherri of A Quilting Life. Carrie Nelson's pattern Hat Trick (one of her Vintage Schnibbles) is the selection for this month. My scraps screamed this is what I want to be! And so a decision was made - by my scrap basket! - I'm joining two fun quilt-alongs using one amazing pattern. I do so love the Schnibbles designed by Carrie of La Vie en Rosie and Miss Rosie's Quilting Company. The little quilts are such fun to decorate with.

My parents are coming in from Mississippi some time this afternoon so sewing time will be limited. Maybe I will make a bit of progress this week to show you next Sunday. If you haven't already go link up with Kim for Scrap Basket Sunday. You know you have scraps! Hope to see you there.

What a great start! I'm joining in with Kim AND I'm a fellow "Schnibbler!" I'm looking forward to seeing how your project will come out. Great idea to combine the projects!

Using scraps for the Hat Trick Schnibbles is a great idea! And I like the scraps you've chosen. I'll look forward to seeing your progress.
