I also enjoy making tumbler quilts with the help of my accuquilt. I had thought of making one to donate to Japan, it would be scrappy, but it would be useful!
Love all the ways you've used your 'scraps'! They certainly aren't scraps now! The placemats are excellent = that would also look great as a band on pillowcases, wouldn't it?


Wow, you really have used every last piece of that beautiful fabric!! :)

GIVING and SAVING is such a great title!

I love what you do with the scraps of the scraps of the scraps. . .

I wanted to make a baby quilt for Quilt Japan, but didn't really like any of my "baby fabric" choices and being too impatient to go shopping for fabric, I kept searching my shelves and found the PERFECT quilt top. I had pieced it several years ago and tucked it away - now I just need to quilt it and send it on its way.

Our Quilt Chapter will be happy to sew your tumbler blocks when we get together in May. Many hands will make it fast and fun. Thank you, Vicki.

Love the placemats - what great inspiration for all those little color-sorted bags of bits I have saved!


Ya done good! I love all your ideas and I can see the energy you put forth. You are so generous to give those kits to various groups too.


I love the brown and greens together, I'm planning a 1000 Pyramid quilt using those colors and I think I'll cut a tumbler out at the same time while I have the fabrics.

I think the tumbler die is one of my favorites for quick donation quilts.


I forgot to say that I love the placemats too.


Wow, you have been a very busy girl! Love those placemats.

Deb Hardman

Wow, that's really impressive! I don't know how you do so much!

I love the crumb sheets! I have used them in a couple of quilts, I like the textur they add! Fun!

Wonderful idea for stash use. I got the small tumbler die, thinking it would be nice for children's quilts. I love the idea of giving quilts to kids, so hopefully I can get going on those and maybe some lap quilts for the elderly too. Love being able to use the dies to make quick quilts.



Looks like you had a lot of fun! Thanks for the great ideas.

Cool placemats and I like the way you did the quilting lines.


Great way to deal with news stress and super use of your fabric scraps!


I am so impressed that you used EVERY bit of those fabrics!!!! I especially like the cool!!!

Vicki...i don't know if i am getting like you....or you are getting like me.....but we both use up all those tiny bits of fabrics. so far i have 220 5" crumb blocks. love those.

Sandy Jandik

A woman after my own heart. I love to feel I've used every bit of fabric. You certainly have-wonderful placemats.


That Go! Cutter has certainly seen its share of use!


What an awesome use of all those pretty those bright colors! A fabric food chain for sure!


Two thoughtful posts, Vicki ~ I think all of us feel some degree of overload what with the overabundance of news (accurate or otherwise) so, like you, stepping aside from the TV or computer to do something tangible and constructive helps me cope.

Gorgeous placemats!

What a great use of worry energy! :-) LOVE LOVE LOVE those placemats...fantastic mix of commercials and handdyes!
