About Me


Thanks for stopping by Melva Loves Scraps - the home of the Quilters Through The Generations series!  

I love scraps.  I love vintage quilts and I love preserving the stories of quilters and the quilts they make.  

I am a Homemaker who has a passion for all things quilty.  I especially like a scrappy look.   I love the challenge of working with scraps, remnants and cast-offs to make something beautiful.

This doesn't just apply to quilting, but with life in general!  I enjoy cooking and frequently watch the Food network for new ideas and to learn about food pairing profiles.  Given the fact that Dave & I are empty-nesters, this means that we have plenty of leftovers.  I love accepting the challenge of transforming leftovers into new meals.

I also have a love for scrapbooking and have a serious need to get caught up... I am two years behind!  

This blog was originally started in 2011 when I participated in a weekly scrapbooking challenge.  I soon lost interest in the challenge and the blog went to the wayside until I submitted a block for volume 8 of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks publication in 2013.  Shortly after, I decided that this would be a great way to document and share the stories of my quilts and some of the thoughts and experiences of life as I make them.

I hope that you enjoy your visit and will choose to follow me here on the blog or through Bloglovin'.  I can also be found on facebook and instagram.  I hope that you will join me in my life's journey.

Remember, when life gives you scraps, make a quilt!
