    Based on both public and private communications, I've come to believe that "scrappy" is not so well-defined nor used to mean the same thing by all quilters.

    What's your definition of Scrappy? Please answer with a photograph (or several).

    (These are NOT my quilts, but others I've found here that I admire.)

    Those are very pretty and scrappy.
    To me scrappy is using lots of different fabrics, no matter how you put them together.

    Scrappy to me is defined as using any fabric left over from previous projects. Nothing PURCHASED for the project. Though I know many people actually purchase and co-ordinate fabric for scrap quilts. But, to me that defeats the purpose of what a scrap quilt is about.

    Here's one of mine and it's a true scrap quilt. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-160689-1.htm

    By the way...someone entered a scrap quilt at our show and was marked down by a judge because the scraps weren't co-ordinated well.... Grrrrr. Scraps are scraps:<
