a complete set

Welcome to finish it up Friday!
Once again the deadline of this link up party has pushed me toward a finish. This week I made 3 more storage boxes: brown, purple and white. I am so excited to have a complete set! (The pattern can be found in Sunday Morning Quilts.) There are a whole lot of scraps in those baskets! The new boxes will count as scrap projects #16, 17 and 18. I'm almost at 20% of my goal of 101....with no scrap shortage in sight! I swear that they multiply at night and in dark corners. :)

The winner of the book First Steps to Free Motion Quilting is Patti! Please email me, Patti, and we will get your prize to you. Thanks to all of you who entered the giveaway!

If you have a finish to share this week, please link up. Thanks for joining me each week! Happy Friday to you!

One in every color--that's beautiful. Where are you putting them?

Those baskets are fabulous! I think I need them all! I just do not have that much fabric to put in them yet, but HEY I am working on it! ;-)

Your rainbow of baskets makes me so happy- and makes me want to organize my own scraps, as well!

karen said...

Your complete set is amazing! I don't know how you do it. Just the thought of attempting to organize my stash by color exhausts me.

Geta Grama said...

With such pretty baskets, there is no excuse for not having the scraps organized; we all need them!

Heidi Grohs said...

I have this on my to do list! Are you using it for scraps only?

Marla said...

These boxes are just perfect!

Andy said...

Great scrap baskets! Because of space I only have room for 5 different scrap bins: red/orange/yellow, blues, greens, pinks/purples, and neutrals.

Patti said...

I love your baskets! And the array of colours make me happy just to look at. I have your book and the fabric and will steal some time to make a couple of baskets of my own. Thanks for sharing your talents!

Deb@asimplelifequilts said...

I really want to make these... soon! Love them.

Catherine said...

I need some just like this! Thanks for hosting this link up:-)

Svetlana said...

wow, these boxes are amazing. Love, love, love all these different colors you made.

capitolaquilter said...

Adore your rainbow delight - scraps do multiply I'm sure of it. I have a basket of "to be sorted" that is overflowing, haha.

tubakk said...

Your boxes are amazing!

Lucy @ Charm About You said...

I'm so excited to finally have a finish to share here!

You know you'd get through scraps a lot faster if you stopped taking them from strangers and well-meaning friends. ;D

Grandma Ruthie said...

Just lovely. I am always amazed at how much you get done in a week! These are on my to do list but first have to get my husband on his 'honey do' list so that I have some shelves in my sewing area to store such lovely bins. Have a great weekend!

Melissa Corry said...

I love these adorable cubes. Just added another project to the list ;)

Elaine M said...

Cute scrap baskets. I don't think I will ever be that organized.

tara said...

Gah! I want a full color set now too! Another project added to my list. Great finish

Vera said...

Your boxes are simply beautiful!

Suzanne said...

Thank you for filling my head with something than sugarplums. I wanna go sew! Can you make my world stop so I can?

Annalia said...

Oh, I hope you have a nice shelf, that they can all sit on so cutely!

Cathy said...

Cute baskets. I love 'em but I know for sure my scraps would never stay sorted and contained in their proper basket!!

Kris said...

Love the baskets and I want the scraps too! :)

Jan said...

Your baskets are so neat! I made a set, too, from your book pattern and I love mine----I like being so organized. They make me feel happy when I look at them! Thanks for giving us the pattern.

Leanne said...

I love your baskets and I am going to get my copy of your book out and maybe make some of my own.

✾Jamie Lee Cooley✾ said...

Oh, I love those baskets!

Linda said...

You've got me thinking how fantastic those would look all lined up on a shelf together!

Mary said...

Wow! Just Wow! My baskets would be a lot darker. I don't think I have any yellow, purple or black scraps. Very few orange. But where are the burgundy, navy, hunter, golds, etc...LOL. Thanks for sharing and hosting your party. Always love your work.

bluebear said...

Love your baskets! What a great idea.

Georgi said...

Your baskets are to-die-for! I'm putting those on my bucket list :)

sharpie said...

LOVEEEE!!!! SO so organized! Must. Make. These.

;)

Debbie said...

SUCH a clever project! Wow. Since my scraps are all jumbles in a huge basket, I'm so jealous! jk ;-)

I think previous comments have said it all, a lovely set, have just checked out the tutorial and will get round to having a go soon

desertskyquilts said...

What a colorful display that will make in your studio! Great finish. I love just looking at them in the picture. There's a sense of happiness there.

Guilitta said...

Help?? I cant find the pattern. Can you put a link to it??

Greeting Guilitta

The pattern is in Sunday Morning Quilts Guilitta. I have made 3 so far - red, blue and green. I'm working on a black and white one.
