    What is your favorite Scrappy quilt

    Please share 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 am a huge fan of Log Cabins for scrappy. It is a block that has soo many posibilites for the final block layout. .. but the barn raising lay out seems to be my favorite.

    My favorite is the log cabin also, and my favorite of those is The Snake River. It is so beautiful and uses up a ton of scraps. Afriend of mine just finished one and it is awesome.

    My favorite scrappy quilts are a square in a square sashed with black. I put all sorts of wild combinations together and even put some together that clash. The ones that clash make it really vibrant but they blend in really well.

    I like anything scrappy. I love the books and patterns by Lynn Roddy Brown and learned a lot about color combinations and values. Here's one that's a work in progress (for awhile now) that's a lot of fun.

    I also like anything that Bonnie Hunter does at Quiltville.com.

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

    I love scrappy quilts! I am so jealous. I don't have scraps yet. I am making my first quilt now and have only sewn a few other things. One day I will have scraps! Can't wait. Anyone made a "scrappy" quilt using perfectly new fabric??? I do have some fabric, I have started building a small stash since I decided to try quilting. Just no scraps yet. I am not patient I want to do one now!

    Lots of people do scrappy quilts with newly purchased fabrics.

    As a way to build your scrap stash ... buy more than you need for all your projects!

    I buy my fabric specifically for scrappy quilts. I buy alot on sale - usually just 1 yd unless it is for borders or backs. I then cut 1 1/2", 2", 2 1/2" strips, the left overs are stored by color and when I need larger pieces I have them - I forgot to say, when I am cutting my strips, when I even up the edges I cut 1 to 1 1/4" for my string box.
    I LOVE everything Bonnie Hunter does and have done all her mysteries. My next Bonnie quilt will be Ocean Waves - lots of hst and I've got tons put away from trimmings.

    My favorite scrappy to make (or look at or think about or anything... LOL!) is the lowly 9-Patch. I can't help it... I LOVE 9-Patches! Here are a couple I made. The dark one was a QOV & the 30's scraps were for my neighbor.

    A fabric at my house is a scrap when I say it is... even if it just got here & hasn;t even been cut into yet! And ues, always buy a little more than you "need" -- for boo-boos (maybe nobody else is as math-challenged as I am...) & to have as "left-overs". Y'know what they say... leftovers are the best part!

    Scissor Queen, I love your quilt and the way you do them. I love scrappies the most I think, probably because of all the color.

    I dearly love 9 patches also as well as log cabins. Well I like them all but those are some of my favorites.

    I don't have a picture of the finished quilt yet (just have the top done) but I love this one and am going to have feathers quilted in between the rows.

    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"

    Ocean Waves, 9-Patch w/ alternate muslin block, log cabin and Square in a Square.
    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.
