    You know if you do that and hate it you just cut it up and resew it into a different shape...
    Never let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    This sounds like something I would definitely like to try. Thanks for the great idea!
    I like a little disorder. Makes quilting a little more enjoyable for me.

    I know what you mean. I have tried scrap quilts a couple of times and it just doesn't work for me. I just really want those pieces to match!! I think I'm just too left-brained... which is why I pretty much stick to traditional quilt blocks... But I love the idea of just tossing them all in the air and let them fall where they may!!

    I don't like scrappy, but I an thinking about trying this.
    Sounds like fun. Please post a picture when it is finished.
