A couple weekends ago I attended a Scrap Management Workshop taught by Amanda Jean Nyberg of Crazy Mom Quilts. The workshop was hosted and coordinated by the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild. I’m the current VP of the group, so it’s always fun to bring in people you really want to see and learn from, so I was very excited about this workshop.
I have a lot of scraps so I was looking forward to this workshop. Amanda Jean taught us tips for organizing your scraps and lots of ideas on what to do with them (even the smallest scraps!). The organizing advice was great for me. I have a hard time dividing up fabric lines (even in the scraps), but I finally just dove in and started sorting and I really like how it turned out.
I started with just a small pillow since I’ve got a lot of other projects going on and I didn’t want anything too big just now. I love rainbow scrappy projects and this was just so much fun to make. I think I’ll need a pillow form that fits a little better (a longer one), but for now it works.
The workshop was a lot of fun and I hope to do more scrap busting projects in the future. That is once I organize all of my scraps!
Thanks Amanda for a fun workshop and for the inspiration!
