    What Is Your Favorite Scrap Quilt Pattern?

    I'm not normally a huge scrap quilt fan, but I do like them now and then. I made one scrappy quilt before, pictured below, but I haven't ventured into it, since. I think I need to make a few, though. I've been throwing all of my scraps into a tote bin for a while, now, but it's needing to be emptied. So, what are some of your favorite patterns for scrap quilts? I know about log cabins and crazy quilts, but are there any other ones?

    I love this one, http://www.quiltingboard.com/attachm...en_pattern.pdf , which I have posted a link to download the pattern for as it is just so wacky

    But the other lovely scrap quilts I like are from Bonnie Hunters site, her Crayon box is so easy and such fun: http://quiltville.blogspot.co.uk/200...rayon-box.html

    But my all time favourite has to be this one, another of Bonnie's patterns: http://quiltville.blogspot.co.uk/200...oxy-stars.html

    I love your quilt - would call it a very controlled scrappy sampler. I usually make very UNcontrolled scrappies, the last one here - http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...d-t207658.html - but usually I make log cabins with the scraps. I'm trying to branch out and make other patterns too and have been going through books and web sites looking for the next one to make.

    Beautiful quilts! I've made 3 scrap quilts using Eleanor Burns "Summer Porch" Pastel scraps for my summer topper, golds, reds, and greens for the fall topper, and reds and greens for the Christmas topper, now one for spring.

    Quiltville is a good place to start when looking for scrap quilts. I am doing the Spiderweb from Bonnie's site. My next scrap quilt I think will be "That Thirties Thing" that someone posted a picture of. It was from a free pattern at Quilter's cache-quilt blocks galore I think.

    Wow great scrap quilt! No advice on a pattern. I think you can take any pattern and make it scrappy.

    I've done other scrap quilt patterns, but I allways seem to come back to the log cabin.

    I love your quilt, love reds. Besides log cabin I like court house steps and also an hour glass quilt.

    If you go to the Picture Archive on this board there is a section of Scrappy Quilts - should get a few ideas. Or try Google or Pinterest...

    I really like the Double Irish Chain quit pattern done in a controlled scrappy fashion. Another one is the snowball block...really, almost any quilt pattern can be turned scrappy! Your quilt is fabulous! Have a great time creating your next quilt!

    I just went thru my 2.5" square last night and I'm getting ready to do the scrapaholic quilt. I love anything stringy from Bonnie Hunter. I LOVE scrap quilts and that is pretty much the only thing I make anymore.

    This is a sort of log cabin but much more relaxed http://quiltville.blogspot.co.uk/200...rayon-box.html

    I have made quite a few for Project Linus :

    this is a pic of just one of many.

    Terrific scrappy! I do love pinwheels myself. Quiltville has lots of great patterns also.

    Your reds and tans quilt is beautiful. I probably wouldn't have even called it scrappy.

    I've used Sunny Lanes from Quilter's cache and several other patterns. Just check out the scrappy quilts thread here.

    Love the quilt in the first post....gorgeous. Another good web site to check out is MaryQuilts.com. The patterns are free for downloading and they are great for scraps, too. I love Quiltville.com as well. I've used a few of the patterns for Quilts of Valor.

    About any pattern can be made scrappy. Not all but most. My favorite one to make is a scrappy log pattern. Great way to use up scraps.

    I think that's a beautiful scrap quilt. Sometimes I have trouble trying to be too matchy matchy, but I'm getting better. I make a family reunion quilt every 2 years, and although I pick a color, I have to use what I'm sent, so it winds up being a scrappy quilt, but it teaches me to go beyond my comfort zone. It's nice to step out of the box once in a while.
