Scrap happy

This weekend my guild arranged a get together - "bring your sewing machine, fabrics and whatever you would like to work on and let's have fun together" the invitation read. While trying to decide, I happened to glance into my scrap bag. It seems to have grown a lot lately and I had thought to myself that I wanted to do something about it. So that's what I brought.
While the rest of the gang got started making fancy quilts and bags, I sorted my fabric by colour and started piecing the scraps together. We had lots of fun, chatting and giggling and the piecing went like a dream. I ended up with this large blue piece and
this yellow one. The idea is to treat these like yardage and cut them into patches. I will do the same with my red and green scraps too, and use them all together in a quilt. Maybe combined with black? Or some other plain colour. I will have a while to decide about that, though. There are still lots of scraps left...

They are going to turn into a gorgeous quilt. I like the idea of making each one in a different set of colors.
