fabric buckets detour

I've had some fun, scrappy fabric buckets on my mental to-do list for a long time, ever since I came across these. And then Chase posted a tutorial for her fantastic scrappy buckets. Well, that was it. I knew I could resist no longer, the buckets HAD TO be made, asap!!!


I pulled out yellow, aqua, green, white, and gray/ black fabric from my stash, cut way too many 3" squares, and made this bucket. It's a pretty big bucket - the bottom is 10" in diameter and it's 7" tall. I think it's destined to hold some of my most precious scraps. We'll see.


Then I made this skinny, tall, all pretty and girly bucket using some of the leftover fabric from my previous projects.

Now that I got fabric buckets out of my system, I can happily get back to my wips patiently waiting for some love and attention. 


See? Lots of random blocks that would like to become finished projects, plus my Christmas and Irish Chain quilts. OK, I'm off to get some sewing done. 

Thanks for stopping by. Svetlana

  1. I know what you mean! I've been admiring Chase's buckets, too. They're calling me. Right now I'm getting drawstring bags out of my system. I need to post them on my blog - that's part of the process, HA!

  6. I could use a few of these--the only thing I love more than fabric and notebooks is containers for fabric and notebooks!

  13. LOL, I'm so glad I'm not the only one that has to take a complete change of course to get something out of their system before returning to a million and one other things that should have been worked on ;o)
