    I have started a scrappy quilt. I've been a quilter for years but only recently got into scrappy. I don't have a large stash but I have been given small squares of various fabric and decided to make a postage stamp quilt. My squares being 2" before sewing. I want the quilt to have a country feel.
    My question is should I go all scrappy for the body and then add a border and maybe do some applique' in it, should I use the 4 X 4 squares with sashing around them or make them larger and do the same and which background do you think would be best or what color would you choose.
    Thanks for the input. Scrappy is new to me and I've seen some I really love and some, not so much. If you'd like to add to my stash with small scraps PM me. :?:

    I think you squares are beautiful. I like the plain color background. I think it shows the colors in the squares more. What ever you decide it will be wonderful.

    No. 2, I like the brown. Than, depending on how much blue in your scraps, I would favor a blueish border with some floral applique. That would be truly country IMO.

    I like #3, to me the blocks stand out and has more color. Just my 2 cents. :lol:

    the first one...the darker brown would look great for the sashing...the squares pop

    the other two colors they just kinda blend into

    I like #3. The other two have an overall dulling effect for me.

    I like 1, with maybe 3 for the outer border?

    If you're going for sashing, I think that #1 would be the nicest against your pretty scrappy squares. Perhaps #3 as a border around that?
