    I started this towards the end of July after spending weeks cutting up all my small scraps into whatever size squares I could get! It has been so much fun concentrating on colour value rather than coordinating colours for a change!!

    I have only added borders to the sides and bottom as this will be used on our sofa bed it measures 87" square, I'm gonna have fun quilting/wrestling this one through my DSM !!! :lol: :D :D :D

    For all of you out there that hasn't bitten the bullet and gone totally scrappy, get cutting up your scraps and join in the fun!

    Thanks again, Grammy Dywnn for starting your scrap quilts topic, I don't think I would have been brave enough to do this without all the inspirational quilts posted, so thanks everyone :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    The colours are much more vibrant in real life!

    Can you see my little fudge on the bottom border I had to centre the diamonds to avoid a half a diamond...didn't plan that very well did I!!

    Izy,
    That is a very beautiful scrappy quilt. Love your choice of pattern and boarders. Have fun with your wrestling match. :)
