  1. I like this one. May have to go back and view the rest and then put them on my endless list!! Thanks for remembering them.

  2. I was cleaning off a shelf the other day, and found the folder with the first 11 of these in it. I kind of said to myself, “hmmmmmmmmmmmmm.” It seems like there should be at least one more. Thank you!

  3. Thanks, Lisa, I saw these a while back and now that there’s a dozen I’m motivated to make them! Love your blog… thanks for all your tips and “freebies”!

  4. Lisa, I am soooo glad you didn’t forget!! I have a couple to do yet, but can’t wait to make them into a quilt top!!

  5. Perhaps I should clarify my previous remark since you don’t know me from Adam: I have such grandiose plans and yet accomplish so little. You, however, accomplish so much and promise even more, I can’t imagine anyone having issue with the things you state. So, I laugh.

  6. Lisa – these were new to me so I went searching for the previous blogs. Searching for block #4 keeps sending me to block #6. Any idea where I can find #4?

  7. I’m missing #’s 4 – 7 – 11, did a search of the blog but don’t see these?? Are they here? Anyone? Thanks! Ani

      1. Block #4 is listed on the same post as #6. Block 7 is on March. 2011 Newsletter.

      1. Thank you so much for the info and reposting it for me. Sorry, I just stubbled on your blog recently and LOVE the little blocks SO MUCH!. Always love your work!!

  8. Lisa, I really like this block went back to find the others. Finally found all but #4-I think I’ve read most of your old posts back to the beginning but I can’t find #4–Please Help–I’ve searched Scrap- scrap basket-#4 anything I can think of and I guess I’m a dist can’t find———

  9. Lisa, thanks for putting another on. I grab them as you post them, in no hurry just think they are so cute.
    Happy New Year.

  10. I’m so happy they are small – a little better chance of getting them done!!!

  11. Lisa, I have all the trust in the world you’ll do what you say you’ll do. I’m with you 100%!

  12. I started collecting these block patterns early on, but have missed a few. Now, for the search, and this time I’ll stay on top of it. Thanks, Lisa.

  13. Lisa,

    These are great! I have all of them printed and a few completed. Thank you for the wonderful blocks!

  14. wow… that block is a quilt in and of itself! lol! i think my machine would gobble up those little pieces as a midnight snack…. 😉

  15. Was able to get all twelve of the scrap basket blocks. And I enjoyed looking at the archive posts.

  16. I just copied off the six inch scrap basket blocks and I found that I am missing #7 and #11. Is it still possible to get those two patterns? I love miniature patterns. You are so creative. I know that is your business but it is still amazing what you create. Thank you so much. Have a good year and I look forward to your new creations as do my quilting friends in the Clinton Co. Quilt Assoc. of Wilmington, Ohio.

  17. I’ve been printing the patterns all along, but I’m going to have to get them cut and sewn soon so I’m ready for whatever you do next with them. Thanks for all the freebies you give us.

  18. Love this block I have all the others but have not started any of them. This is one of my someday projects.

  19. I love these little scrap blocks! I have gone back and printed all the ones I can find, but some seem to be missing! I have even scrolled through the archives but still can’t find #s 4 and 7. Any suggestions? Thanks!

  20. Got it! Have the others but haven’t started them. But then again, I don’t normally keep scraps (anything under a yard is considered a scrap for me!) so I’m going to get some nice coordinating fabric and do them. I really like the patterns.

  21. I love this block! I did not know about the scrap basket blocks but I found all but #4. Thanks to CJ Reed for posting the link to the pattern. I have so many scraps and this project will burn through a lot of them. Thanks for posting this block and introducing me to this project!

  22. Just discovered your weblog and went looking for all 12 of your 6″ BLOCKS. Found all of them except numbers 7 and 11. Would love to have them as well if someone out there would send them to me. Thanks.

  23. Hi I am new to your blog ut love it already, I have one small problem, I can’t find blocks #4 #7 #11 can someone tell me where they are, thanks

  24. Can anybody tell where #4 is posted – found them all but that one and even a blog seach does not find it.

  25. You are just AWESOME!! Thanks for all the free stuff. Hope to get to take one of your classes some day. Have been to one of your lectures and learned so much. Happy New Year, Lisa!

  26. Just wondering if you have all the scrap basket blocks in a quilt and I missed seeing it in your blog?

  27. You actually make it seem so easy together with your presentation but I in
    finding this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complicated
    and very huge for me. I’m looking forward in your subsequent submit, I’ll try
    to get the hold of it!

  28. Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking the time and actual effort to generate a good article…
    but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.

  29. I’ve found them all but #10. Looks like everyone has found that one, but it’s my computer (not the operator) help please
