Stars in Stripes
It was with mixed feelings that I submitted my last Scrap Addicts project to my Quiltmaker editor. On the one hand, it was DONE and I don't need to stress about it anymore. On the other hand, it was my LAST project, and I will miss the interactions with my fellow Addicts and the Scrap Addict editor, Diane Harris. She has been a great cheerleader for us, and has provided wonderful encouragement along the way!
In my experience, being a Scrap Addict has been a lot of fun, and quite a challenge! Being a Scrap Addict meant that I needed to come up with at least 2 quilts based on Bonnie Hunter's blocks that were published in her Addicted to Scraps column in Quiltmaker Magazine. That included coming up with a quilt design, choosing the fabrics, figuring out how much of each scrap fabric I had, and where it should go in the quilt, piecing the top, sandwiching it, choosing the quilt design, quilting it and binding it. Whew! In retrospect, it was a lot of work, but it was all worth it! I guess I was a bit of an overachiever because I actually decided to do three projects, not two. Some of my trials and tribulations involved with that decision can be found in my previous blog posts.
If you ever get a chance to be a Scrap Addict, go for it!
