    Can I do a D9P with scraps? Couldn't I just make 1 block with scraps, then make another one with different scraps? Would I need any borders between the blocks?

    It's your quilt. You can make it any way you like! No quilt police here!

    It looks great with scraps, I would use one colour family for the center square so once it's sliced there will be some "pattern" visible.

    I did mine with charm squares in the corners. I used one fabric for all the centers, and scrappy creams for the other squares.
    Charm/Cream/Charm
    Cream/Dark/Cream
    Charm/Cream/Charm
    I think I used three different charm packs, picking out the light ones and using them with the creams from my stash.
    I have seen some done just all scrappy, but IMHO, I think it looks better with a little bit of consistancy.

    I made this with three inch squares and it is very scrappy. I made sure to put all red center squares to tie it together.

    Love your quilt with the 3" sqs. in 9 patch. Then I guess you
    split the block into 1/4'ths and re-assembled. Looks
    terrific.

    I really like Penni's with the cream sashing, but I think you could also do it without sashing, but it would take quite a few more blocks.

    I'm no expert, but I think I'd like it better with sashing than without on a scrappy quilt. I can't see why you couldn't do a scrappy one, they're fun! But without sashing, I think it would just...I dunno, make me cross eyed or something! LOL The sashing breaks of the various scraps, kwim?

    Thanks for the compliments everyone. I also like them without sashing, so whichever you plan to do, it will look great. Please remember to show us yours.

    Penny, I really like your D9P with the sashing. This is the first time I have seen it layed out this way. My plan is to make a D9P quilt for my youngest grandson for Christmas next year (his cousins are getting quilts this Christmas). Maybe I'll do D9P for his brother too. One with sasing, one without.

    Now I know what to do with those charm packs that I have a box of. And I wanted to try a D9P.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Penni, it is pretty, I'm starting one now doing it differently, hard to say what it may end up looking like, just started it, kind of thinking as I go and not going to use sashes. It is for a nephew in law and his 2 sons to use for TV watching this winter.

    sewnsewer2, your is pretty also. Love the scrappy look.

    Try a few blocks first. I think you just might like it!

    Trick is CONTRAST as you see w/pic of quilts. As soon as the remodeling is done, I plan to do another D9P. Maybe a baby quilt.
