Hey! Let's see those Honey Buns!

Well I don't know what happened, but suddenly it's July and here we are doing the Scrap -Along post.

That means it's time to show off those Honey Bun precut projects with your 1 1/2 inch strips!

I'm glad to see you here visiting today, and be sure to visit my friend Sherri McConnell's blog, A Quilting Life to see the other fun Honey Bun projects.

Along with some other Scraps-Along pictures, Sherri will be showing a video about sorting scraps in her post that you might want to check out.

I can't wait to see it!

I can never decide if I want to sort my scraps by color, by fabric line, by fabric designer, or by size, so my scraps are sorted several ways which isn't always helpful when I go to look for something. 

I could use some scrap sorting help!

Sherri's video and these great quilting ideas might make a dent in my scrap mountain this summer!

Look at this cute table runner made by Nicole! She had lots of leftover 1 1/2 inch strips and some Log Cabin Foundation Papers from It's Sew Emma that she's been wanting to use, so she put the two together and came up with this adorable floral table runner.  She used a flip method for the binding instead of the traditional one.  Nicole says she prefers the traditional method because she finds the project lays flatter.  I love that she used a method that she's not as familiar with on a small project and did something a little different! What a great time to work on a new technique!

Sharon used her Honey Bun strips to make this new hot pad.  This is a super idea for me, since I was just telling you about my mountain of 'kind of sorted' scraps. Making some of these cute hot pads would be a fun summer past time since we are staying out of the heat as much as possible here in Florida right now.  Sharon is considering appliqué to her hot pad.  I have to say I think it looks great now, but some appliqué might be fun too. Nice, Sharon!

This Crazy Rails Quilt was made by Kate.  How fun is this quilt!  She gathered her 1 1/2 inch strips and the pattern by Crazy Mom Quilts and made this sweet quilt.  Kate says depending on how long your strips are, you can make multiple blocks at a time with the Crazy Rails pattern.  This is another one that I'm definitely going to look into!  I'm all about making more than one block at a time!  What a fun scrappy quilt!

So for July, continue working on those Christmas in July projects or what ever holiday project you'd like to share, and send in your pictures and description by the end of the month.

We'll see you back here and over at Sherri's at the beginning of August for out next Scraps-Along post and our plan for the next challenge.

Stay safe and have some sewing fun!
