    I use Holiday prints, I like that all my quilts are connected to each other. I still have some fabrics from when I first started.

    I do not usually add holiday prints or children's prints in scrappy quilts.

    I use what ever scraps I have. I noticed once that I had used some glow in the dark print scraps from p.j.'s that I made for my grandsons one year. It just made me smile. (It was for my own bed though)

    I will throw it in if it's cute, Halloween and other Holidays too if it looks good to me.

    I made one that was nothing but holiday prints. Imagine if you will Easter, Halloween, 4th of July, Christmas, Hanakah, etc., all together. It was for my nephew. He calls it his "Happy Everything" quilt.

    Oh, you mean colored fabric with holiday themes. If they fit, use it.

    If I am making what I call a "true" scrap quilt, I use everything, holiday, childrens, theme, whatever scraps I have.

    Me. I feel that a scrappy quilt means any design and any color whatsoever unless of course I'm doing a "controlled" scrappy whereby I use only certain designs, say plaids, or batiks, or 30's, and a certain color scheme.

    I was working on the dryer sheet scrappy blocks last night and have Christmas and Halloween incorporated into the blocks. They are scrappy right?

    I use whatever scraps are the right size and don't really pay attention to the fabrics themselves.
