Oh Hop… Let’s Scrap!

Happy Thursday!  Today is March 15 and that means it’s Oh Scrap Day!

Today is the official “release day” for Oh, Scrap! by Lissa Alexander.

You know Lissa as ModaLissa, the Director of Marketing for Moda.  You’ve seen her quilts before, Modern Building Blocks, in the Moda catalogs – usually not with her name attached, and on the covers of many national quilt magazines.  But this is her first book and we couldn’t be more thrilled for her.

Because there are so many of us that love scrap quilts, many of us wanted to share this book with an Oh, Scrap blog hop.

  20. Fat quarters are my favorite precut because I can cut them up into layer cakes, charm squares, jelly rolls, or anything in between. They are so versatile! And I get every fabric in the collection.

  21. Recently I found in my stash some Moda Mon Ami charm squares which were a perfect addition to a current colorful scrappy project. All precuts are fun but charm squares are great for extending the fun in a scrappy project.

  22. I like all the precuts. Just depends on what I am making but what I do love is that the fabrics all coordinate so one decision I don’t have to make.

  23. Congratulations on the new book! I have stacks of fat quarters and your ideas might just be the way to cut into them.
