    There are some really beautiful quilts in here.

    My question is : what condtitutes a scrappy quilt? Is it only made from scraps, do you purchase some or all of the fabric or does it depend on the pattern? I've made quilts from books with scrap or scrappy in the title but had to purchase the fabric to get the quilt pattern to come out properly.

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    The idea is to make a scrappy quilt alongside another quilt without putting any effort into it. If you use the squares at the beginning or end of a different project row, then your stack will grow and you can soon put another scrappy top together.

    Here's how fabulous those quilts are... I still remember them from your original post! And I have senior moments frequently, so you can see what a feat it is for me to remember anything for longer than 4 seconds... LOL! These quilts are the cat's meow!!!

    IMHO, it can be pretty much anything. By that, I mean... it can be made from true "scraps" of fabric or you can buy fabric for it (I've done both & sometimes in the same quilt). I don't think it matters about the pattern too much. I think almost any pattern can be made "scrappy". I think there are 2 kinds of scrappies, tho... controlled & not. Controlled has a fabric that ties everything together & not is just whatever goes.
