    Beware, once you go scrappy you don't go back. I find just a few fabrics boring now - ok, I always did, it's just worse now that I'm scrappy.

    I find the "Nickel Quilt " books very inspirational for scrappies. There are three books in the series. As mentioned by the others Quiltville, is also a great place for possibilites.

    Hi Carslo,
    Love the look of that top. That is what I am looking for. Look forward to seeing your tutorial. Tks for the pic.

    Hi A,
    Haven't talked in a while. Tks for the help but why do you use adding machine strips? Is it because you use small pieces & that makes them easier to handle?

    Check out MaryQuilts.com. A lot of the patterns are great for scrappy quilts, and they are free. Most patterns don't take up more than two or three pages. Have fun!

    One of my favorite scrappy quilt sites is this: http://www.maryquilts.com

    And I found it through this board.

    As my post came up I saw quilttiger's post for the same site.

    Wow A., love that quilt. Basically from what I can see, you can take several pieces of left over material & sew in whatever design you want as long as it is balanced. Does that sound right? Tks for the help. Lots of ideas going thru my head. Lots of possibilities.
