    My scrap tub is absolutely full. I can't seem to throw fabric away. It's all too precious - right?

    Here is a tutorial to use up some of your scrap tub.

    The tutorial is for a cushion / pillow, but can just as easily be made into a quilt.

    I'd love to know what you think :-)

    It does look good...I love raggy quilts but something tells me I would be tempted to turn under the raw edges....Madness I know and probably defeats the whole purpose. Think I need to loosen up a bit! Thanks for the link:).

    Interesting. Question: is she leaving all the edges raw?

    Yes the edges are raw. It's got a lovely soft fluffy texture :-)

    My granddaughter and I make quilts for dolls like this all the time. She is five and this is so easy for her. I love scrappy and these quilts are alot of fun for both of us.

    I saw that somewhere else, too. I am thinking of making mug rugs like that. maybe use a black background, so wont get too grungy looking.

    I have a link to a doll quilt that's based on the same idea. Haven't made it but I've got all the fabric together.

    I'm with you earthwalker, I guess I need to loosen up, too. It is a cute idea though. :-)

    It's not traditional - that's for sure :-)

    I guess my relaxed quilting approach is showing, right? :P
