OMG Cream and White Scraps Box

 Remember the DrEAMi! I had, well two, that I wrote about on Saturday? Well, those scrap improv panels that consumed me grew up into another scraps sorting box. This was in reality my OMG, either a cream and white or a pink box this month. So it wasn't a true DrEAMi, because it was planned, whereas a true DrEAMi just sneaks up on you, unawares, and grabs you by your easily-distracted mind, and off you go, ignoring all other must-do's while time seems to stand still.

I quilted this one with floppy feathers, and I found a piece of scrap batting upon which I was able to place four of the five sides in a line. I've never quilted something on my longarm without a backing, but I gave this one a whirl and it worked out great. In no time I had them done, even writing white and some synomyms on the panels. The front there has 'opal' and 'pearl' on it.

This side has 'snow' and 'ivory' written on it. I used a couple of white and cream fabrics for the lining. One is a sewing-themed fabric and the other has all the provinces and territories of Canada written on it! That one was given to me by Rose of somethingrosemade. I almost didn't cut into it, thinking I should save it for a quilt, and it wasn't really a scrap, but then I thought, no! I will enjoy seeing every time I dip into the scraps.

Here's a better look inside, with my cream, etc. scraps already inside.

A few baskets back, I started making the bottom out of a quilted panel and I really like it: it's sturdy and uses up more scraps, a win-win!

This was also on my Q3FAL list, so another one checked off!

  1. That's neat to know that quilting on just batting and the top worked well on your longarm. Your scrap baskets are growing and are going to be such lovely decor in your space!

  3. How pretty your scrap baskets are going to be all lined up and of course filled as scraps seem to multiply all on their own.

  4. Looks good. I think a beige scrap box is the only one I am missing!

  5. Rose is such a fun fabric benefactor, isn't she? That's really fun fabric, with all the provinces written throughout. Your bins are such fun and will be such a great addition to your new sewing space!

  7. Hi Sandra! I think this IS my favorite basket you've made. Cream/white is my go-to favorite color palette except when it comes to clothes (I look awful in my favorite color). I guess we'll have to imagine how fabulous it looks next to its cousins or sibs since we can't see the whole array of them. Where did you place it in the color family? This just makes me want to make some of these myself although we don't store our scraps like this (it would drive Sue over the edge). {{Hugs}}. ~smile~ Roseanne

  12. This white and cream scrap box is so pretty and calm looking :) I still have made only one scrap box, though starting another is always kind of in the back of my mind. Maybe soon, lol. In the meantime, I love seeing all of yours as they materialize!
