Thanks for stopping by Melva Loves Scraps - the home of the Pieces From The Past Sew Along, the Santa Fe Trail Sew Along and 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!
