    Elisabrat, what if you put a border around each block or pick a color from your blocks and add rick rack diagonally across the finished top to make it look like borders on each block.

RHONDA HELP!
    Linda I like your blocks really well. they have alot of variety and color and look well sewn. I would use a light to medium green as you don't have much of that and a light green would give you contrast.

    I just found this post today. Don't know how I missed it. I love scrap quilts and save almost any size scrap and try to keep them separated by color or theme. I just saw this quilt in an Australian Patchwork and Quilting magazine and think it will be my next scrap quilt. I really like yellow so I'm pretty sure the yellow will be my background color, and then just pull scraps randomly to make the half circles. Have really enjoyed reading everyone's comments. Ssnare, I'm going to have to look for that magazine. I have a LOT of 2" blocks sewn together. Maybe they would work.

    Elisabrat, I'd use black and white as your 2 other colors because A. you don't like the mixed up colors, B. black and white will "match" anything and are already present in each block, and C. Depending on how the mystery goes, it might well calm the quilt down for you or distract you from the mix of other colors. Good luck with it and have fun.

    I prefer controlled scrappy myself. My one attempt at uncontrolled scrappy made a swift shift to controlled and now it's on my bed I think I've posted pictures of it before, and at least this link, but here it is again if you want to see it.....http://www.flickr.com/photos/5800297...7626558897887/

    Another idea for a future swap......swapping scraps by color. Swappers could pair up based on what each one wants to receive. Sometimes I just don't have enough of one color to complete a controlled scrappy project.

    The scrap quilts I have done are all in bright colors. I guess that is also called controlled scrappy.

    here are some tops I started and have in progress. the first two are lap size quilts for my twin grandsons Devon and Daymon. I had done a top for my 14 yr old grandson as a baby quilt and embroidered all the family names on it for him. My DIL saw it and wanted one for each of the twins. They are regrettably still in progress LOL

    The heart quilt is applique. I love love playing with hearts. It was so much fun to do this one that I couldn't part with it. I baste the edges under and then top stitch them to the background block. or I used a herringbone stitch on some blocks to cover the raw edges.

    Just a few more ideas.

    I love all the scrappy possibilities! I can't wait to get home to get my scraps out (again, as I'm always working on something using them) and see what I want to tackle first? I love the scrappy Ohio Star block you posted Rhonda...I too have some scrappy friendship blocks...mine are 6" and I might dig them out again. Should be able to get sewing tomorrow! Happy New Years's Everyone!

    Finished two scrap quilts that were my UFOs, I followed with PorkerDiva and put in a base color and it worked. Otherwise my true scrappy was going all over the place because i did just grab and sew. I like doing that but was not coming to the right size for me either.

A 2.5" x 3.5" white with a 1.5" square scrap sewed on the corner and to this piece you sew a 2.5" scrap square. Then sew this piece to the 2.5"x 5.5" rectangle piece to make your quaretr block. 3 more make a "circle" block

    I am not at home for another fortnight, at our fishing shack sewing like crazy and I will be starting another one of these quilts tomorrow so I will try and take a couple of pics of this process if I can.

    Here are the pics I promised, it is a great pattern for a scrap quilt.

    I found it, but, to be honest, your pictures pretty much say it all.

    All I can say is "WOW", what a wonderful show of talent here. I love scrappy, but rarely do it. Gonna give it a try though, soon. Soon as I get caught up, again. Sew many ideas, so little time. Dang job, anyway.
