Default Looking for scrappy ideas

I've got a bunch of small cuts of fabric anywhere from 2.5" to 1/2 yard and all sizes in between. I'm looking for a good pattern that lends itself to scraps. I was thinking possibly a log cabin. That is honestly my only idea haha. Any thoughts or scrappy quilts to share with me? Thanks Joe

Bonnie Hunter is totally scrappy. Here are a lot of her free patterns http://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/free-patterns.html

I got past the What?? page when I realized for me, scrappy was color, not pattern. Any pattern you like Just imagine each color as the whole spectrum from your stash.
It would be interesting to take a quilt you've already made, and like, and remake it in scraps?

I'm working at precutting down my stash as I won't be able to do that with precision before long...kind of like canning my stash
Here is an example of my storage, and any Bonnie Hunter quilt is an example of the result.

I like Chinese Coins. A strip of a thin old sheet as a base will keep it stabilized.

There are so many patterns that lend themselves well to scrappy quilts. Here are a few of mine.

Boxed Squares
Tradewinds (or something similar)

or you could make up your own as I did with
"Pipe Dream"
