    Have been working on these random scrappy blocks for a while now, they are made up of off cuts and pieces of re-cycled shirting. Just wondering what you think of placing solid blocks in between or should I keep to all scrappy? Have been having fun with these, not sure about the quilting, might end up tying it. Any ideas would be welcome.

    I like the addition of the solid blocks. Probably because I'm not a fan of "real scrappy".

    What if you add a same color lattice strip in between each scrappy block or even a lattice with a blank block and a scrappy. I think the same color lattice would bring it all together.

    I like the solid blocks.....what about making them half square triangles? Might be a compromise between all scrappy and blocks.
