    Scrap quilt

    I would like to know what your favorite scrap quilt pattern is when you use many different fabrics for the quilt. I have made several of Bonnie Hunters quilt patterns and my favorite for hers is Crayon Box. I want to find another pattern that I will like as much as that one. Thanks

    Bonnie Hunter at http://quiltville.com has lots of great scrap quilt patterns for free! Just go to the site and look on the Right hand side, they are listed there.

    I was just on her site last nite and printed off the pattern for this quilt http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/strip-twist.html

    I am not a big fan of scrap quilts because sometimes they look too chaotic for me but this one caught my eye and I believe that some day I will get this done!! And I will probably purchase fabric just for this so I can have some sort of order to it! (does that make it NOT a scrappy quilt anymore?) lol

    Hi!!! I love scrappy quilting. One of my favorite patterns is by Augusta Cole (http://augustacolequilting.com/) called Scrappy Squares. I have made bunches of them. It's a great lap size plus it's easy to machine quilt.......just follow the seams with your walking foot edge. I love Bonnie Hunter also and Pat Speth's books (Nickel Quilts)

    I'm currently working on a scrappy Jacob's ladder. it definitely uses up all the little tiny pieces you have. I've attached a picture of a few of the blocks I have finished and attached together

    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.

    I love Bonnie Hunter's website, as mentioned above. Every time I go there I want to make a differnt quilt.. I love scrappy quilts, they are my favorite.

    I think the thing that makes scrap quilts too chaotic sometimes is if there isn't a light background, or at least a solid color for your eye to rest on.. if it's all just a jumble of color I find them less pleasing than if there is sashing or a background to give it some peacefulness in the midst of the scramble.

    I too am a huge fan of making scrappy log cabins. I seem to have lots of scraps that are 1.5 inches wide, so its suits that type of scrap.
    Take a look at the type of scraps , are they long strips, or cut off triangles, squares .. I let the shape of my scraps guide my choice of pattern, so I get the most use .

    Oh - thanks. Now I know why I find MOST scrappy quilts chaotic and unappealing. I will keep that in mind if I ever decide to do one myself.

    thank you. the squares are 1 inch finished so it takes me a while to get a few blocks done because I'm not very fast. But as was said with nowhere for the eyes to rest, I'm putting a solid border around the outside for something a little more calming than the overwhelming quilt.

    I usually turn to a log cabin to use up my scraps. I always use a different setting, sometimes supplementing the log cabin blocks with other types of blocks, but I enjoy not having to think too hard about what pattern to make, how to cut the scraps, etc. I find if I just get started, the scrap pile stays under control, but if I think too long about what to make with them it becomes a chore and I don't get it done.

    I think just about any pattern can be used. I like the string quilts.

    The Double Wedding Ring quilt I did was a scrap quilt. I love scrap quilts that use up all the tiny pieces I've been saving for years.

    Take a look at www.maryquilts.com . She has lots of free patterns, some of which are Go friendly, and she does a lot with scrappy strip quilts.
