Scrappy Success = a Satisfying FINISH :o)

"Scrap Boxes - Rainbow Love"

Back in January I started a "little" project to make myself some Scrap boxes as inspired from the book "Sunday Morning Quilts".  It has been a somewhat slow project with little bouts of productivity.
Well Friday night that "productivity" kicked in again as I began the last few.

Well, what I thought was a few as I went and added this one (below) right when I thought I was finished :o)

I didn't realise how many white tone on tone scraps I had so they just had to have a box of their own.

Each and every box has been made from 100% scraps, even the batting, most of which was pieced.
Then every panel of every box (4 sides and the bottom) were all 1/4" quilted.  That's a LOT of quilting!

But, the end result.  Oh So Worth it if you ask me :o)

and an aerial shot, just because I can :o) 

Easy to see that I am inspired by colour and the rainbow isn't it.

I used the pattern from the book "Sunday Morning Quilts"
and made mine a little larger to fit my space.
Mine come in at 8" wide, 9" deep and 8.5" high
They hold a lot of scraps.

There may be one more added to this collection. 
One for my Selvages.  I'm still undecided as they are currently in a big glass jar.   
Thinking thinking thinking :o) 

So this officially leaves me without a scrap project.
Being that I save my scraps I like to always have a scrap project on the go.
Looks like it time to head over to Google Images and Pinterest and find my next scrap project.
If you have any ideas for me please share.
