    Those are lovely examples!! I like the fact that the sashing pieces on the second are from 2 kinds of fabric.

    That's because I was using up a couple more scraps :-P

    THANK YOU ...THANK YOU...I am new to quilting and always wondered what people meant when they said "scrapy quilt". This looks like so much fun, I can't wait to try it. Do you cut squares of batting and then quilt pieces to that? I am not sure I understand how you do the backing. It looked like you quilted onto squares (what happens with the raw edges that are uneven when you quilt over top of them? Just don't worry about them? After you cover the whole block, i am guessing that you use your rotary cutter to trim all the sides. This may all sound so trivial, but I am such a beginner. Thanks for sharing!

    ladies go to www.quiltville.com and on the right side click on crayola box, it's a block that will use up scraps in a hurry. I love this block and I know I've said this before but I ironed all scraps from one tub and less than a yard pieces and to date I have 96 blocks sewn and am still cutting. No foundation needed.

    Neat blocks. Each one different and unique. Put together and you have a different and unique quilt. Nice.

    I also call this style crumb quilting ala quiltville but actually learned it here a little over a year ago. It is a great use of scraps in any size or shape. It is also fun "mindless" sewing and the blocks go together really fast. I don't do mine with foundation either. Thanks for posting.
