    I'm looking for scrap patterns because I was given a bunch of scraps I need to use, to empty my fabric tubs. Any patterns that use lots and lots of scraps?

    Thanks! :mrgreen:

    Here is a link to some very beautiful quilts and patterns that are mainly made from scraps! It's great inspiration!!! The hard part is to decide what to do!

    The quilt I finished for my landords was a great scrap buster as each block took 12 colors. Its called Framed 9 patch. I found it online as part of a sampler, but I see its not there anymore. PM me if interested

    I'm collecting scraps from my mother's neighbor. I intend to use them in a postage stamp quilt. That's a good way to use lots of little scraps.

    Mile A Minute quilts are great for scraps. I recently learned this technique at a quilt guild meeting. It was a lot of fun to do too!

    I cut a lot of my larger scraps into 1 1/2" strings and made a lap quilt for my little boy from the quiltville site - it was fun and really quick, it's the one in my avatar. For teeny scraps, check out Izy's crumb block tutorial here on the board. You can make blocks any size you like then piece them together with or without sashing. I made some matching cushions for a bed quilt (I'm still quilting it!) and as I only had tiny scraps left, I made these crumb blocks. It would be fun to do a whole quilt of them!
