    Well, here she is so far!.....

    Here's what squares I had and blocks all sewn together now I just have to find some fabrics to put with it as it's only 47" x 67.5" so far. What do you think? I think it's so pretty and I love scrappy quilts!

    My daughter is making her first quilt like this. Using 3 In squares, but the problem is that I was not watching her close enough and her seams are all wonky so now she has to take them apart. She became discouraged and now won't work on it. I have plenty of material for her to cut up since all I have is scraps in my stash. yours looks amazing, keep up the good work. Beth

    I have one like that myself, (around 25 blocks ) waiting to be put together. Seeing yours is inspiring. I think I need to unearth this UFO and start woking on it.

    Congrats on your scrappy quilt.

    Very Nice. This is a great lap size. Scrappy is my new favorite pattern. Great way to use what I have but still find the urge to buy more.

    What a nice scrappy quilt. Maybe an inner and outer border would make it the size you need. Post a picture when you finish.

    Very pretty. I have been making quilts with my scraps, just finished one with spring looking scraps. I just need to post the pictures.
