If You Show Me Yours, I'll Show You Mine

Welcome to all of you who have made the journey into your scrap pile, drawer, or basket and pulled out the makings of a block--or many blocks!  And welcome to those of you who are simply browsing for now, looking for a little inspiration.  Yesterday's Mr. Linky list will lead you on a little adventure to Scrap Land--just click your heels together three times and repeat after me:  There's nothing as fun and creative as using scraps to make something new and wonderful!  Then click your mouse on the names listed in the Linky list and see what everyone's working on.  Because this is, of course, Scrap Basket Sunday.  And these are my blocks for this week:

In case you're just joining us and wondering what pattern I'm using or have any other questions about what WE'RE doing for Scrap Basket Sunday, just click HERE--last week's post.

I thought I'd also show you how I'm keeping my blocks--at least for now.  I know many of you have some sort of storage idea you like to use, but here's another possibility to consider:  Wrap the blocks around a batting covered heavy duty cardboard roll and tie them with a ribbon.

Then store the rolls in a bin, on a shelf, or wherever you have some space.  I had a post about a year ago where I demonstrated how to make these and how I use and store them--HERE.

If you haven't already, I hope you'll join us in setting aside a little time each week to make blocks using your scraps.  There are tons of patterns and ideas out there--and you might just be able to find one you love by visiting the other quilters who have linked up to yesterday's post.  Scrap on!

Such pretty blocks! And I love your block storage idea... my Strip Stacks blocks are a very odd size and this will be perfect.
