The Ole Bag Swap

The Wacky Pac Quilters have been discussing thru email having a scrap block swap using each other’s scraps. SEW, we started. Here are the rules:

1) Each person provides a 2-gallon baggie full of scraps and brings to Wacky Wednesday for swapping. Put your name on the bag.

2) You will make a block of your choice from the scraps you bring home.

3) You can only add background fabric. All other fabrics must come from the baggie you end up with for that month.

4) At the following Wacky Wednesday, bring back the bag of scraps, your completed block to show. If you do not bring a bag and completed block to Wacky Wednesday, you do not get another bag of scraps.

5) It is up to each individual to keep up with whose scrap bags they have used.

At the end of swapping, we will have enough blocks to make a scrappy quilt for ourselves. This should be lots of fun and we will end of with really neat scrappy quilts. It will be interesting to see what everyone one comes up with.

We started swapping, so those that were unable to come need to bring their bags next month.

Happy swappin’ ya ole "wacky" bags!

Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
