Scrap Happy. Happy Scrappy.

To my mind, everybody loves scrap quilts.  I’m probably biased.


Clockwise from the upper-left corner:  Scrap Basket Quilt by Amy Smart – My Favorite Color by Lissa Alexander – Housewarming by Amy Ellis – Meadow by Corey Yoder.

The book is Scraps Made Simple – 15 Sensationally Scrappy Quilts from Pre-Cuts.  Fifteen quilts from fifteen Moda-certified quilters – the Moda All-Stars.  In addition to making a quilt for the book, Lissa Alexander – ModaLissa – hand-picked the list of contributors that includes several Moda fabric designers and many of her friends in the quilting world.

Our friends at Martingale – That Patchwork Place – are sharing some of the “designer secrets” from the book today.  Scraps of Wisdom – each designer was asked several questions about storing scraps, signature moves, why they love scrap quilts, etc.  (It’s one of my favorite things in the book.)


Moda Fabric Designers – Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts – Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles QuiltsLisa Bongean of Primitive GatheringsCorey Yoder of Coriander QuiltsAmy Ellis of Amy’s Creative Side – and Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life.

Super-cool friends and amazing quilt designers – Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co. – Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter – Sherri Falls of This ‘n That – Laura Boehnke ~ the long-time, revered “alternate version” designer for American Patchwork & Quilting – Jan Ragaller ~ quilt-shop owner, designer, author, etc. – Susan Ache ~ a prolific creator of original, scrappy quilts that she just made up as she went along – and Lisa H. Calle of Quilter’s Groove Rulers.

And me.  This is Old School.


It’s based on one of those “who knows where this comes from” antiques from the early days of Pinterest.  I loved the idea of repeating a single block – especially when I could use a different fabric for each of the 210 blocks.  In playing around with options for the block sizes, my choice was determined by the block that could be made with two matching charm squares – or two blocks from a 10″ x 10″ layer cake square.  Fat Quarters and Fat Eighths will also work beautifully but the smaller the piece, the more variety, right?

As for how long this took me to make… a couple of months.  I made the blocks in batches of 25 to 30 using a single colorway – e.g., 25 blue blocks, 25 green blocks, etc.  Since each block has seven half-triangle squares, I made them eight-at-a-time with one leftover.  (I planned to make something with them but eventually shared them with someone who loves itty-bitty pieces.)

If you’re curious – 3,384.


Because the nice folks at Martingale sent me a few more books than I’m going to need, we’re going to share three copies – three winners.

If you leave a comment by Midnight on Sunday, June 5th, you could win a copy of Scraps Made Simple.

Then get busy pulling and sorting your scraps.

  61. Dawn D says:

    This book might just help me explain the “scraps for later” box in the sewing room to everyone who asks, “why do you save all those little pieces? you should just throw them away.” Throw them away, indeed! Are they nuts?

  62. DEBBY says:

    I thought I was reducing my scraps by making a “big girl” quilt for my toddler granddaughter’s transition from crib to bed. In fact, I know that I used many of the scraps left over from her four baby quilts :). Yet it does not appear to have made a dent in the scrap piles. I’d love to win this book.

  63. Donna says:

    I loved the Moda designers row book and have already made a couple of quilts from it! Working with scraps is always a challenge for me and since I am crazy about the row book, Im sure I will find lots of ideas in this new book on scraps!! Moda designers, keep the books coming!!!

  64. That is so nice of Moda and the book Co. to send you those books. I would love to win one I have lots of scraps to use or I need to give them away. Thanks, Nancy P.

  65. Sandy Evenson-Hagen says:

    What a wonderful giveaway! Love scraps and the many options they offer! Best quilts ever!

  66. Vicki says:

    Although I love the modern quilts, my favorites are still the vintage scrappy quilts – they remind me of the quilts my Grams made from pieces of fabric from her multiple sewing projects. Would love to win this book!

    Great idea for a book! Would love to win one!

  70. Helen G says:

    Oooh! I think I have some nice scraps for Old School. How many pieces for a king size quilt? Hmmm. A few more than the mini bowties quilt I still want to make?

  71. Patty says:

    Love my Moda fabric

  72. Jackie Hinz says:

    I love, love Moda fabrics and I love piecing the quilt tops. Would really like to win a copy.

  73. Pat D says:

    Would. Love to win a copy of the book, so I can make a scrappy quilt for my guest room.

  74. Brenda says:

    Oh “man, woman, and child” (as one old long time Nebraska football announcer used to shout when something exciting happened) I want this book. I need it. I was looking just this morning at the hundreds (thousands) of charm squares I’ve collected in the last 20 and a few years. Lots. Mostly one pack of a line, sometimes two or three or four. And trying to figure out what I should do with them. I thought of cutting them into 2 1/2″ squares and trying a leaders and enders quilt. I thought about trying to be more “formal” and making a true charm postage stamp quilt, limiting myself to one of each fabric. But that would leave me with the problem of what to do with all the rest of those squares. Dilemma. That’s why I need this book. I need a plan. Or at least a direction. Or two or three. Or more. I have a lot of charms. We won’t discuss all of the true “scraps” I have.

  75. Sue Cleek says:

    Exciting! The book seems awesome!

  76. Sharon P says:

    Scraps are the best and I have a few ton!!

  77. Robin says:

    Fantastic giveaway! And who couldn’t use another drool-worthy quilt book on their shelf?

  78. Vickie says:

    my scraps are over flowing – I could likely make them all twice!

  79. Paula says:

    I’m a new quilter and already am building a good scrap pile… I’d love to learn some storing and using secrets! Thanks so much for the chance to win this great book!

  80. Sara Carroll says:

    I am creating a lot of scraps with my current quilt, love to have the book.

  96. Patti says:

  97. Janis says:

    Simply what is not to love about scrap quilts. Looking forward to buying the book.

    First is the love of the fabric that you just have to have. Knowing for sure that one day it will make the perfect quilt, table runner, wall hanging, bag etc. Then when the scraps are left you simply cannot get rid of the scraps (for the love of the fabric) so you hang on to them waiting again for the perfect??? The book is a wonderful addition to all quilters and their bundles of fabric joy

    I always get so inspired looking at scrap quilts made by others. Most of the time I think to myself, “now why didn’t I think of that?” My hubby says he can always tell when a scrap quilt is in the works because he says my sewing room looks like a bomb went off in there!

    It looks like a great book for summer reading/sewing.

    I first started quilting 3-4 years ago and now I am making them for my friends and family. I love the idea of using my scraps for even more quilts and even more, I love the design range of Moda. I can always find one that suits the taste of my friends. I would love this book to help me on my quilting journey.

    I see one that would be perfect for a beginner like me–all squares and rectangles. I just need a jelly roll and I could start using my stash of mini charms.

    We are full time RVers. It’s a challenge to quilt in a limited space and I am under standing orders to reduce the remnant pile. Edit I an constantly looking for scrap patterns. This book would be a Godsend. Thanks for the chance to win!

    Even though I have just begun (3 yrs) I still have, mysteriously, acquired a stash of seemingly unrelated items. This book would be just right for an increase in fabric used, stashed lessened, and no pain to the wallet. Hope I win!!

    Oh my goodness!! I LOVE scraps!!
