    Also, I made a "crumb" quilt recently and posted pictures at http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...p-t183509.html

    I love, love anything scrappy!! So colorful. I have made a commitment not to buy any more fabric. I have enough stash to last a very, very, very long time..... Even more so since prices went up!

    gollytwo, I'd love to see your plaid scrap ideas as my DGD is requesting a scrappy plaid quilt. I have collected lots of plaids and am looking for pattern ideas for her. Hugs and smiles

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    On a related note, I was looking for something on the web & stumbled across this blog & the neat mystery quilts they have on it. I thought this one might interest you. It looks cool (IMHO). Enjoy!

    The color is more accurate on the first one.
    It is for my G/daughter for a wedding present. I think I am going to let Charisma perform her magic on this one. I call it "Bull's Eye on Point"
    I am in LOVE with this! I love scrappies & I'm a weird-o but I like piecing curves so this right up my alley! I cannot wait to see it all done! Please post it again then! Your DGD is one lucky lady!

    Here are a couple I have in my "idea" folder (no, I did NOT make these & have no idea who did). Maybe? Also, check on Quiltville because Bonnie does alot with plaids & stripe scraps.

    My Favorite Scrappy Quilt

    This is my favorite scrappy quilt, but I have lost the instructions with the patch sizes. I made several before I lost it.

    What is your favorite Scrappy quilt

    I am a newbie but have already accumulated a lot of scraps. So, about every couple of months, I make a scrappy quilt. The rule is that I can't purchase anything new but I can use anything on hand. My most recent was the D9P scrappy I posted last week. I made the blue squares small to increase the number of fabrics used and allow me to use smaller scraps (4 inch squares). So, I am always looking for scrappy ideas.
    I really like the Log Cabin quilts to make the best use of leftover cloth. They can made to use all one type of cloth or they can be scrappy either one. I also like the strip quilting. There are so many choices with strip quilting.

    We have a great granddaughter who was born the middle of February. *Her name is Cadence Rose and she is the first great grandchild for us and the first granddaughter for both sets of grandparents. *I guess she might be spoiled, but I hope not. Of course we had to come back to the US to see her and bring her something.

    After our arrival April 26, I have put together quilt blocks made from four different sets of 2 1/2 strips to make a twin bed quilt. (Her aunt had already made her a crib quilt and she did not need two that size.) One set of strips was light pink; the second one was light pinks and spring greens; another was different prints of lavender and the last set was strips of different purples.

    I sewed one strip from each set together to make a 8.5" wide stripe. *From there I cut the striped set to be 8.5" squares. *Finally, I put two squares facing each other (going opposite directions) and stitched them around the outside on all four sides. *Then I cut from corner to corner (both ways) making four triangles and opened them up to put the triangles together to make the blocks you see. *I plan to finish setting them together with green strips and quilt them with a pink rose print backing. *

    You can see I have started the the green sashing on the bottom of each block, but I ran out of that fabric. *My daughter shared some of her cloth so now I have more green for stripping up and down and also a pink backing with tiny little roses. *I think this will have to be called "Scrappy Surprise" since it developed as I cut and sewed.

    Here is the tutorial that I only saw once before I started Cadence's quilt.
    *
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5Ixv...feature=relmfu

    You can see by my photo that what I did turned out totally different. *I told my daughters that I believed in evolution because I was not at all sure what might happen as I tried to replicate what I had thought I remembered. *Anyway I like what "evolved."

    My work has taken less than a week to finish the blocks and it should not be much longer from here before the quilt is finished. *Some like to use the Jelly Roll strips, and that is the way to go to save so much cutting. *Usually the Jelly Roll strips come in sets of one color, so depending on what you want to do or who the quilt is for, you have infinite variety to choose from.

    No need to wait for scraps. I make just about all my scrappy quilts from perfectly new fabric bought to make scrappy quilts. I do like to make controlled scrappies meaning brights, solids , a sashing or border to help tie it together or by colors.

    A very big Calking in progress. The fabrics are scraps from another quilt made out of FQ, new yardage and FQ bought from some one on this board and from the fabric store. I went for mostly florals cream, red, blue and greens and a more blended look. This is my second daughter's wedding quilt and she loves shabby chic but I did not want the powdery blue, whites and soft pinks for her fiance, Mr. tall dark and handsome. In my mind I made a home decor shabby chic suitable for a guy.DD has seen it and loves it. I also made a her a small lap quilt in the same pattern. Her fiance is a pastor and they will both be going for missionary work in Africa. They will take the small quilt along and the big one will wait for them at my house when they move back.

    I like designing my own quilts from scraps..
    I have don't like doing other people's designs
    I read a beautiful article about the quilting in Israel, and how popular it is getting.. would love to visit, and see the exhibits.. I fell in love with the Chagall windows, and would like to design something along those lines.. I think I could do it with scraps..

    I like the log cabin. There seems to be some "order" to the scrappiness!

    I'm guessing Calking = California King? This is the largest of beds, I think!

    I was trying to wrap my head around caulking until I figured it out.

    There are 2 others I love for plaid scraps - they don't have recognizable names.
    I can post with cutting instructions and pictures if anyone's interested.
    Yes, please, please, please do post pictures & instructions! Pretty please? With scraps on top? LOL!
