    I like to paper piece smallish (3-6in) log cabins and "Michigan" string blocks from Quilterscache.com. Narrow strings, anything goes ,plus off white/neutrals to "tame" the blocks. Left over scraps in a box and occasionally sorted by color as
    recently for Xmas: reds, neutrals, greens where easily accessible. I do prefer my messy method:dump scraps in a big box as long as they fit in, then reconsider. I'm too stingy to throw anything away!

I have to laugh because I so want to do some scrappy quilts, in particular the Lil' Twister pattern. I have a ton of charm squares but it's taking me more time to design (layout the original squares) then it will to put it together.
    @ margie77072: My designing always takes longer than the actual doing. It is all part of the process. If you really want to try a scrappy, start with something small, so if you really don't like it you haven't spent alot of effort or fabric on it. Not a big loss.

    I get scrappy when I run out of room in the 2 boxes I have my left over strips and blocks in. I just completed 2 quilts, one queen size log cabin, one 50"x50" 4 patch. Barely made a dent in either box. Oh well, I have 2 weeks off coming up, let's see where I get then.
