A Lot of Scraps

A Lot of Scraps

Posted on  by Debbie

Recently I started looking at the baskets of scraps in my studio and decided I needed to do something with them.

The scraps are actually the leftover cuts from when the sample headers were put together for the sales staff at Moda.

The largest pieces are 9" X 13" the smallest are 2" by 13".

Since they are all 13" wide it made it easy to put them on my design wall to move them around and play.

I started to sew them together and tried to not have to trim very much. I am delighted with how the project turned out. It is a 56" X 76" scrappy lap quilt. I am sending it to the quilter and can't wait to snuggle under it on the couch while reading or watching TV.

I think other people might want to play with my scraps so I am making bundles of the scraps to offer for sale. I am not offering any instructions for making anything...just bundles of scraps. You get almost the equivalent of 3 1/3 yards of very high quality Moda fabric that I designed for $25 plus shipping. 

I did the stitching, wrapping or folding and clamping to make the original hand dyed fabric that was sent to Japan to be reproduced. We are only human and there are only two of us working but we tried to make sure each bundle contains a piece of every fabric in all 6 lines, Shibori, Shibori II, Machi, Yuki, Nuno and Shimo. "Shimo" is shipping to your local quilt shops in April. Some shops already have the special cuts like Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes. 

This sampler scrap quilt is also a great tool to see what I teach in my shibori/indigo classes. If you are interested in leaning how to make your own hand dyed fabric check out my teaching schedule here on my new website. To purchase a bundle of my scraps go to the new website and click on Moda fabrics. Tiori Designs/Debbie Maddy  

In the original post for Lots of scraps I was offering the bag of scraps for $33 and free shipping. It should be $25 plus shipping cost. In the continental US that will be $8.50. Having the shipping separate will make it easier for international shipping to be added. Sorry for any confusion.
