    What's your favorite pattern for charity quilts...

    ...that uses up scraps?

    I'm bored with sewing together 8" squares (the "generic quilt" that my group makes)... and I have plenty of scraps of my own that I'd like to use up.

    So I'm looking for suggestions. Pictures would be nice to see, too, if you happen to have any!

    Thank you!

    I am making a string quilt out of my scraps that will be donated. Yellow Brick Road I guess would be my favorite for easy, I do get bored with the 4 patch-solid combo all the time good luck finding a new pattern to play with.

    and here is another version
    Each piece is 3"x5.5" and each row is reversed. Can be controlled with three prints or can be scrappy

    Here is a really wild version

    Disappearing 9 patch (D9P) is great because you can use whatever size squares you have.

    Warm Wishes is also good, or rail fence.

    If you've got scraps that are strips, make some rail fences. They are so quick and each one can be different by the placement of color or number of rails in the block. The stair step effect, the diagonal across the quilt, is also so eye appealing.
