cross block, pillows and other adventures

I think I told you we had the new Bella - Possibilities in from Quilting Treasures. Along with all the other projects this week-end, I made up a runner for a shop sample.  Like the rest of you, I have a hard time tossing scraps. So I bag them up and save them for 'someday', which is pretty slow in coming.  Since I'm thoroughly disgusted with how messy my sewing room has gotten, I decided the FIRST step to clean up was to stop saving every scrap!  First project later, and here are these strips, triangles and squares.....  and I can't just throw them out!  So A Dozen Quilters to the rescue!  I'm turning them into projects for ADQ!

So the scraps from this one became a comfort pillow heading to Patty,

And then I made two more cross blocks for Jenny,

and the scraps from this project will probably be baby bibs!

So I didn't exactly clear out any scraps - but I didn't keep any new ones either!!
And if any of you would like a bag of scraps, I'd love to send them to you, I have lots and lots!
Happy Scraping!
