It's amazing how quickly scraps add up when you start sewing them together. When I started, I didn't plan on making a quilt this large, but the my pile of strings didn't diminish as quickly as I anticipated. This quilt measures 72" x 96," and although I used all of my strings long enough to cover the length of the center of the block. I still have LOTS of shorter ones left. Every now and then, I get on a mission to get rid of all of my scraps at once. Though I have pulled from my scrap jars selectively for certain quilts, it's been awhile since I've busted them completely, so it was time to put them to use. Scrap quilts are always my favorites, and the way this one is shaping up is definitely not disappointing. I can't wait to get it basted and quilted!
Oh my goodness! Last week's party had so many amazing projects linked up, I had the hardest time choosing features today! Just look at this awesomeness by Shauna's World-
And this fantastic variation of an orange peel quilt by Zarkadia Quilts-
And finally, this curved log cabin mini by Handwrought Quilts is so gorgeous. The shades of gray in the background really make the rainbow strips pop!
Woohoo! Y'all rock! I always look forward to browsing the links each week, and I can't wait to see what you have going on. By the way, I have FOUR giveaways going on right now, as well as a few great coupon codes from my favorite shops, so be sure to hop over HERE to enter.

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop" when selecting your thumbnail photo. For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work! :)
