While digging through my project boxes looking for a kit I bought several years ago, I found one box full of miscellaneous scraps. There were lots of bits of green in there, so I pulled them out to see what I had that might be useful for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Our color for May is green, and here is the pile of green scraps that I got out of that box.
Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict has been hosting "I May Have a Scrap Problem" link-ups for the past few months. My scrap-busting goal for the month of May is to sort through these green scraps, trim them to useful sizes, and get them all filed away. Maybe I can even get some blocks pieced from them!
One of my favorite things about making scrap quilts is playing with a wide assortment of fabrics and remembering their original uses. The line of fabrics across the bottom of the above photo were some that were used in a quilt that my sister and I made together for our mother in 2011. Here is another shot from when we were auditioning and choosing the fabrics, followed by a photo of the finished quilt top. Unfortunately, I don't seem to have any photos of the quilt after it was quilted. I will have to be sure to take some next time I visit.

Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. I'm also sharing my scrap-busting goal with "I May Have a Scrap Problem" at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
