July Blogger BOM - Remixed 9 Patch

Today is the July installment of Blogger BOM. We are almost finished with this journey. I can't believe how fast the time has gone. My apologies for the late post. I have been having a lot of trouble with my laptop.   The presenter today is Nicole of Mama Love Quilts! The block she created is a remixed 9 patch block. As soon as I saw it I thought why didn't I think of that!. Nicole's tutorial is great and it looks like an awesome way to use up some scraps. To see Nicole's tutorial click here.

Nicole's tutorials looks so professional!

As always I am giving away some goodies.....This month the prize is a $20.00 gift card to Connecting Threads. Much like me they are in Columbus and I am impressed that they donate their scraps to charities like My Very Own Blanket. Use this tutorial to use your scraps for good!

To win be a follower and leave a message below on how you use your scraps for good. The winner will be picked on 7/25/13.

  1. I love this block!
    I too use my scraps to make charity quilts - usually for our local hospice.

  2. Thank you for the kind words, Dhia!

  3. I've used my scraps to make quilts for a cause that I call "Because You Matter", which is quilts that I make for kids in transition to foster care. The social worker keeps the quilts under her desk, and when they get a call to go out with the RCMP and rescue kids from domestic violence situations, they take the quilts with them. The children are wrapped in the quilts and their quilt stays with them whether they are returned to their home or go into the receiving home or into a foster home. Thankfully they only need a few quilts a year. It gets expensive, so I accept donations of other people's scraps plus use up my own.

  4. I am a follower - and I use my scraps to give to my SIL who uses them to make grocery bag holders for plastic bags you get at grocery stores. I also use my scraps in bee blocks, so I feel like I reuse the fabrics for a good cause, instead of throwing the fabric out!

  5. I try to incorporate my scraps into my many quilting/sewing projects. I always find small places to put my scraps instead of making more scraps. Every quilt I make, I gift. I have yet to make one for myself, though I'm working on one. :)
