    So glad you reposted that you couldn't find it. I was staring at that pic looking for the windows. LOLOLOL :lol: My first reaction is that your windows look alot like a railfence quilt. :lol: As a scrap rail fence, it is very nice and sure it was a satisfying project. I love scrappy!

    LOL I'm glad Boo posted, I'm bad about reading real fast(cause I'm at work and have to hurry) so I didn't catch the part about this just being ANOTHER scrap quilt and I just couldn't figure out why it was called some kind of windows! Guess I'll slow down a little.

    Thanks to all of you for your explations of th "Spy Quilt". I can see it as another way of using up those short lengths of fabric left over from other projects. I love the quilt pictures. Thanks again to all of you.

    an I spy quilt is usually made for children. It features differnt pictures within the blocks of the quilt usually done with hexagons but not necessarily. The blocks feature a different picture, thought I have seen it done with to identical pictures and also with an adult animal in on hex and a baby in another. The idea is then to ask the child can you find the...... You can find several sites on the net if you put in I SPY Quilt into your brouser

    I just made my first scrappy quilt - well, a table runner... I LOVE it... my daughter, who declares she does not like quilts (she told someone they have taken over her life - referring to my spreading out in our house!!), wants a baby blanket (she is 17, not even close to being married OR pregnant) to put in her hope chest made out of the same fabrics... I did go and buy some and then she said I had to wait to make it because she wants fabric from HER baby blanket in it and if I make it now she will have to give up her blanket (remember, she's 17!!) and she's not ready yet!! I have put that project on hold :)

    I happened to have some scrap material from dresses, shirts, etc. I had made the grandchildren from time to time. Then a friend sent me a batch of cloth with lots of wines and browns. Vicki R. sent me a nice stack of blues for sky (which I have not finished piecing yet), and so you can see it truly is a scrap quilt.

    I have tentatively arranged them on a friend's dining table. She and I worked back and forth for a long time to get the effect of sky, water, vegitation and fossels on the bottom of it all.

    I am still not sure the top is going to satisfy true quilting esthetics. I need suggestions.

    One more set of photos should tell the story.

    And finally the photo of the baby grandson who is to be the recipient. His father was our youngest adopted son--Asian Indian.

    Here is a link to an ebay auction for the pattern called "It's a Snap" that I think would work really well with the blocks you have laid out.

    Check it out!

    Wendy,

    I could not see any specific pattern for a Noah's Ark quilt at this site. I guess what I forgot to tell everyone is that I started off with the Noah's Ark pictures and sort of tried to build around that theme. The greens and browns were soil and vegetation. The wines and browns were vegetation (decayed) and possibly fossilized. The blues were turbulent waters of the flood. The actual prints were in the center and the rest sort of built around it. I had wanted a better blend, but it is sort of turning out striped. The sky (still to be done) is to have a rainbow in it somewhere, etc.

    Now will the suggestions be easier?

    I can't visualize the pattern or effect that you had in mind. More importantly, you have to find an arrangement that suits you and not worry about anything else. The fact that you are spending your valuable and limited free time speaks volumes for how much you care and no one will criticize your efforts. I think it is beautiful just as it is. I like the scrappy look--I also like the way all of your colors go so well together. I know for a fact that I am my own worst critic, and have a tendency to be unhappy with my final effort in spite of all the nice compliments that I recieve. Possibly you have caught the same bug that I have and that is why you sound worried about the final result. But I think it looks great and the baby is darling too.

    Hi Boo:
    Can you tell me where the Scrap Quilt Challenge pictures are suppose to be posted? I went all through the pictures thread and saw LOTS of scrap quilts but didn't see where there is a thread for the Scrap Challenge for 2008. Thank you for any help you can give.

    Feathers, here is the page I started for the 2008 Quilt Challenge, where everyone who participates is supposed to try to use just what they already have, whether it is scraps or stash in general.

    Thank you Quiltmaker, I was already at the site once or twice this morning and didn't realize that is what or where I was looking to be. I'll have to post my scrap quilts on that thread so I can participate in the challenge. I appreciate your help. Thank you.

    I enjoy making scrap quilts. Yesterday I started a crumb quilt. At the moment I have the first 37 blocks that I"m working on. I am making them all 5" square. I have other 5" blocks to go with them. Trevor really likes how they are looking and would like a scrap quilt made out of the crumbs blocks for the bed. so the dining room table right now is COVERED in fabrics and crumbs. I have never made crumbs blocks before and I"m absolutely loving it! I was up til 2am sewing them up and watching movies last night! I'm figuring I might need 60 of these blocks to make the design I want to do.

    After this one, I have so many scraps I might need to make another one! Hey its a great way to use up all those little pieces that are taking up room for newer and bigger pieces LOL

    I think the scrap challenge is a great idea and I, too, am anxious to see what everyone does. It should be lots of fun and I'm glad you are joining in.

    I've never heard of a "crumb" quilt....is that the same as what we see being called "charm" quilts with little tiny pieces? Hurry and post a picture. Can't wait to see it! :lol:

    Here I am answering my own message.

    I have completely "scrapped" the idea I had earlier about how to piece the Noah's Ark quilt for my grandson. It just had no "zip" to it. I put it away for a year and he is nearly old enough to need it now. He will be one very soon.

    I need to go back to the files somewhere and figure out how to delete the photos I have online and put my new version up there. I feel much better about all the changes.

    GramMER to 17 now...

    A new baby girl was born April 26th and I have no idea what kind of quilt to make for her. Her mama is so talented and has almost finished a Joan Walsh Anglund cross stitch on Hardanger squares inset into an Irish chain quilt for her. It is beautiful, so what can I do??? :oops:
