When Life Gives You Scraps


Hi there crafters!  The final post of the first day is dedicated to another great quilt saying; When Life Gives You Scraps, Make A Quilt.  What else!  While this is a fairly decent sized sentiment, it just barely skirts in under the size limit to be considered a Mini Expression.  I love it because it can also be used as a focal element as well as a lovely sentiment for your quilt cards!  A quick comment on this post will get your name entered into the drawing to win this one!  Someone has to win, it might as well be you!  Day one is now complete, but we have much more to come starting here at 6am tomorrow morning!  I would love it if you can join us back here then!  All for now, Sue x

What a fabulous start to the launch. Usually when life gives me scraps it's the sign of a card made fit for the recycling paper bin ! Will be here for day 2 and looking forward to it xxx
