Scrap Happy

I'm not usually a use up every last bit of fabric kind of girl but lately I've been downright scrappy!  It all started with these improv QAG scrap baskets...

As I was sorting my scraps I stumbled upon these leftover bits from my Tula Pink Houndstooth quilt.  I wanted to make a sample to test thread colors on and I got the idea to piece together these triangles to make a block I could use.  I liked it so much I went to work on the rest of them.

And then I realized my good friend's baby is about to have her first birthday.  Also in the scrap bin I unearthed the remainder of my Eva scraps from my Easy As 1, 2, 3 quilt...  perfect for some ABCs with the added bonus of using up all those batting scraps I've been saving.

And of course a birthday gift with 26 pieces practically requires a coordinated bag to store it in which got me hooked on making Lined Drawstring bags...

I'm not sure it's actually making a dent in my scrap bin but it sure is fun:-)  What's your favorite scrap busting project?
