    I decided to try to do one ninepatch every day this summer. I set about my task and here is the finished product. I used only pieces I had already cut into three inch squares (I do this as a matter of habit with my scraps as I finish a quilt). I have quite a stack of just three inch squares.

    Many of the patches do not have matching "darks" or matching "lights" but I tried to put together a pleasing patch with the squares on hand. Even the sashing was from my stash, as well as the backing.

    I didn't make too much of a dent in the scrap boxes, but I sure had a lot of fun making the quilt top.

    Great quilt and it didn't 'cost' you anything as it was your scraps!!! I love scrappy quilts because they look 'quilty' to me. (Does that make sense?!$*&^%

    Beautiful quilt, I have stash envy! I agree with Lauren about scrappy quilts, maybe because they remind of the quilts at my grandparents cottage by the lake.

    U go girl! Great way to use up scraps! Like U I wouldn't have put much of a dent in mine either. I try so hard not to buy any more material, as I have enough to last a life time.

    Great quilt, scrappy yet not a mish mash, I can't seem to get the hang of these scrap quilts. Yours look so good.
