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.

  5. I love scrap quilts and right now I have sorted my scraps by colors in boxes I have collected from Costco!!! The only problem with my scraps is that they seem to multiply at night and I never seem to decrease the number of them. I would love that book..

  11. Nearly all my quilts are scrap quilts. I like to have pieces of quilts past in my current quilt. I could definitely use some new ideas and would love to win a copy of “Scraps Made Simple.”

  12. Fell in love with scrappy quilts the first time I made Tag Sale, have been hooked on the fun it is to play with all that fabric ever since.

  15. Love love love scrap quilts… If I am gonna do a BOM or mystery I always go to my scraps… Funny thing they never seem to deminish wonder why

  16. I say we start a scrap exchange! We all have great scraps from hither and yon, ancient to modern, from the “not-quite-big-enough” to “why did I like this fabric?” lets do some trading people!

  17. I love Moda and I love your blog! Would LOVE to win this book! BTW, when will the Moda Frivols 11 be available? I’ve collected all 10 so far.

  20. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway. The book seems super fun! I especially like your pattern and the houses pattern.

  21. Carrie I just LOVE your quilt ! You always do beautiful work. Thanks for the giveaway.

  22. Scrappy quilts always feel so old-timey, in the best way. I love to make them, receive them, and snuggle under them. What’s not to love about them, really?

  23. Sounds/looks like a great book! Finally into my very accessible quilt room and am organizing it. My DH is unearthing all sorts of fabric that was put into storage when i came home from the hospital.

  24. Thanks for the opportunity to win a copy of this Awesome book!!!! I love scrappy quilts!!

  25. It looks like a great book. I have a lot of scraps building up and these look like great ways to use them up.

  26. I can not make a quilt that isn’t scrappy- love lots of different pieces and fabrics! Thanks for the giveaway

  27. Scrappy quilts are fun to make. You can have a planned color palette or just let anything fly. I would love to win this book. Thanks for the chance to win.

  28. Scrappy quilts are the best! Thanks for giving me the opportunity to win one of the books! 🙂

  29. My fellow quilters make fun of me because I save every scrap but don’t do anything with them so this book would be great!

  30. Thought I had made a huge dent in my scraps but apparently they multiply when you are not looking. I would love to win this book. Thank you.

  31. 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?

  32. 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.

  33. 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!!!

  34. 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.

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

  36. 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!

  37. I have tons of scraps and even though I sew many scrap quilts the pile doesn’t go down. I also have an extensive collection of Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes. I would love this book. I enjoy reading your post.

  38. 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?

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

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

  41. 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.

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

  43. 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!

  44. What better way to indulge in scrappy quilts than with this book! Thanks for the giveaway and chance to win.

  45. Scrappy quilts are my favorite. This book looks awesome. Thank you for the chance to win a copy.

  46. Whoo hoo Scraps!! Another great book full of quilts I need to make. Simply beautiful designs to use up some of my scraps.

  47. I’ve never made a “scrappy” quilt, but it’s on my agenda! Thanks for the chance to win this wonderful book!

  48. I love quilts from scraps and have several to show it. A new book means I can dig into other scraps and see what comes out the other side.

  49. I love scrap quilts. They remind me of my Granny. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the give away!

  50. I could really use this book. I have been cutting up my scraps all day with my AccuQuilt. Now I just need a plan to use them.

  51. Love, Love, Love it scrappy! I’m another scrappy gal who would love to win a copy of the book! Thanks for the chance!

  52. I look forward to reading this blog. It really motivates me to get some new projects done. I have alot of scraps, that are actually organized, that I am sure I could use with patterns out of this book. Keep up the great blog!!!!!

  53. Unless you throw away all fabric bits after you finish a project then you’re likely to have lots of scraps, right? So it’s only right that you love scrap quilts, books and patterns! Can’t wait to get my hands on this book!

  54. As a new quilter, I don’t have a large stash of scrapes but have some fat quarters i can use for quilts in this book.

  57. I love making scrappy quilts! I have a huge box of calicoes crying to be put into a quilt!

  60. Scrappy and happy. This way you never run short. Thanks for the chance to win. Looks like a great book.

  61. I love scrappy quilts. This looks like a fun book and it would be so cool to win one.

  63. There are so many wonderful fabrics. I can never settle on one range, so end up with bits and pieces from all over – perfect for scrappy quilts. Love the look of this book as I’m always looking for inspiration to bring the fabrics together.

  64. How can something so lovely come from “scraps?” I don’t know which quilt I would want to make first, but I know I need the book to make it happy! It’s my birthday this week…what a great gift, to be a winner, it would be! Fingers crossed….

  65. Well there are many comments from those who would like to win one of those books and I too appreciate the opportunity. I do not have many scraps but I do have over 100 FQs that should be used so that I can purchase more.

Before, I just put all the leftover scraps in a box but now I am cutting into strips just ready for projects like in this book! My scrap quilts will have plenty of KS Troubles fabrics to mix and match with other projects I have done in past years.

  74. I love scrap quilts and would love to win a copy of the book. As hard as I try to use up my scraps, I think they’re like laundry….multiplying in the dark!

  75. I always plan on making a “pure” scrap quilt, meaning NO NEW FATS to make it. I’ve even actually started several, but have broken down and bought “just the right fat quarter”. Love the idea of a book with all my favorite designers-including YOU!

  76. I have boxes, little and big, full of Moda scraps which I have correlated by subject and/or color. Love Moda fabrics because of the quality, design, and variety. What a fun book!!

  90. I’d love to win this book as I’m always looking for new ideas to use scraps. Thanks for the give-away!

  91. 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

  125. I CRAVE scrappy. As my tastes in quilting evolve, I find myself doing fewer and fewer quilts from a limited number of fabrics, and more with a wide variety. They just appeal in a different way somehow.
