Default Sign of the times.

Have been noticing there seems to be more scrappy quilts being done..........
I feel it's because people are trying to save money and still want to work at their passion of quilting.
I love scrappy quilts and enjoy seeing all the beauties everyone comes up with. I make mostly scrappy quilts because I love them and have done many other types too. They seem to be my first love and I am so happy when someone gives me a bag of scraps.......... I know there must be something wrong with me.... right?????

What's your take on this?????????

I love scrappies too! Even the ugliest fabric looks good if it's cut small enough. LOL!

Being the oldest of 11 I can't waste even a little bit of fabric. I have lots of scraps and friends are starting to give me theirs. Right now I probably have enough scraps for at least 20 scrappy quilts. It is fun to come up with ideas for designs using scraps.

I love scrappy; wish I made more of them. Still pay the same price for all those scraps.
