    Question What is your fav scrappy pattern?

    Spent all day..except for when I was at work for four hrs..reorganizing my 24 containers of fabric. Ended up with three containers of sraps...all diff sizes. What is your fav scrappy pattern? Going to donate the quilts to Quilts of Valor but not red white and blue. All suggestions w/b considered. I'm just too tired to make a decision. Thanks guys!

    My favorite is log cabin! It just lends itself so well to lots of scraps.

    I made my first quilt when I was 16. My Aunt cut up an old sheet into squares and we just started sewing bits and pieces of old clothing to it then when it was full, flipped it upside down and trimmed to the sheet edge. Made for some interesting quilts. I still have two of them. My youngest refuses to let me throw away the one I gave him - we have replaced the backing twice! The fronts too raggedy to fix now. The quilts over 40 years old!

    I love love love making string quilts! I got the idea from quiltville and absolutely love doing this pattern. There are no rules, just sew strips to strips (you can use small squares on the ends) and they come out so gorgeous! I like to use fabric foundations, some people like to use paper, it's up to you!

    log cabin or string

    either one. We started making scrappy Log Cabins years ago for a lady who owned a quilt shop and gave us her scrap fabric. She said, just put ALL the fabrics in together, and it came out great!

    The string quilt is one of my miniature ones.

    I am sewing the SpiderWeb quilt from quiltville. The blocks are going together well, getting me over my fear of paper piecing. My stash has to be getting smaller. This scrappy quilt will be made completely from the scraps from quilts, etc that I have sewn, so a bit of everything will be in one. The exception here is the off white middle triangles, although I have had this fabric for some time, too, never cut into it until now.

    My personal scrappy favorite, out of all the quilts I've made, has to be my Pineapple.

    I love string quilts, because you can use any width or even wonky strips. Here is a great link

    I just ck'd this site & as I scrolled down, I found a video by Bonny Hunter where she shows how to cut down a shirt for the fabric. Can't believe the pcs. she found that I would have tossed like the collar & cuffs.
    It's funny since I just put 6-8 beaut. shirts in a thrift store bag as I try to trim down my house. Problem is, I don't need the fabric.

    This is the first Bonnie Hunter quilt I ever did. I just kept sewing away and ended up with enough Bricks and Stepping Stones for 2 quilts. :-) http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/...ng-stones.html
