    My DH refers to scrappies as "real" quilts. Meaning traditional frugal fabric usage. He always loves my scrappies but says they are too good for charity giving, because of the time and love involved... a concept I don't really buy into. He says scrappies are what I should give to someone who s seriously ill, such as the acquaintance with stage 4 brain cancer who was given a month to live MAX but was still alive, alert and wrapped in that quilt a year later ..... in remission!!!! She credited the "magic" of the quilt. Her DH said she always wrapped up in it for lounging at home or going out in his truck.

    Rhonda asked me to post this and a tute on how to make it. This pattern is awesome for jelly rolls and 2.5" strips. It goes together fairly easily although the piecing is a bit finicky. Here is the link to the tute (PDF): http://www.quiltingboard.com/tutoria...d-t235957.html

    and the picture.

    Thanks JNCT14! It is a gorgeous quilt!

    Here is a quilt idea that came in my email today. It is from Victoriana Quilt Designs.

    Rainbow Crossroads quilt

    when I choose colors to use I like to go from the lighter to the darker and gradually go up the value chain. For the border she used going to the rt she went yellow orange red purple blue green. I would always put blue as the dominant color and she used green. To me green is less than most blues. Interesting also to see how she crossed a color like an x or L as in the blues. I would usually try not to repeat more than one color per line. Just me. From a distance it looked like a Kansas Dugout blocks to me but it is all HSTs and squares. Very interesting and a fun way to use up scraps!

    I just found this thread and have enjoyed reading a lot of the posts. I love to scrap quilt and those types of quilts always seem to be more interesting than the matchy-matchy quilts that I did while learning to quilt. Don't get me wrong, I still do matchy quilts from time to time, but it the scrap quilts that I seem to enjoy the most. It's like while you are piecing you think to yourself "Oh, I don't know about these fabrics going together", but when you stand back and look on it, it's like magic.

    BTW, love the pics of all the quilts posted in here. Wish we had a "like" button.

    December is a busy month for most. I see it got somewhat quiet in here. I am sure alot of you are scurrying around getting presents done.

    I'll be looking forward to more scrappy pics of all the things you are working on ladies and gents!!

    Here are a couple of hotpads I just finished.
    The quilt block is 6" finished and the hotpad w/ borders is 8" finished.
    These use my shortcut methods. Star Point Blocks in the first one and my version of Kansas Dugouts in the second one.

    Don't think you hit a nerve--just sparked some good discussion.

    Nice hotpads, Rhonda. GD #1 & 3 helped me make pot holders Saturday made from scraps, but bigger ones as they were the kind that you start with 6 large squares, fold 4 in half and lay the folded ones so that you don't have to leave a turning hole. Made great teacher gifts and since there are 5 teachers involved they made for themselves and the other kids.

    Rhonda, the hot pads are lovely. I'd hate to use them and risk soiling them! They're probably too small (and finicky) for me but I so enjoy looking at them. TFS.

    I've not made hotpads that way, but have done tons of coaster sets...very cute idea! I'll have to give it a try.

    Rhonda, your hotpads are adorable! I love them!!!

    Ronda--I cut 8" squares and let the girls use 1/2" seams. A piece of cotton batting for filler and you are all set. May cut up so old towels and use that for filler the next time out. Girls loved the project and can share a hand made gift with their teachers.

    How does that method work??? I'd love to learn it. (Maybe I'm the only one who's never heard of it!) Thanks in advance for any instructions anyone has time to post. I love using scraps.

    Anna, it is to go on the opposite side of the panel that will display some of my quilts at my show. I am just going to add a sheet as a back for that. Afterwards I think I will unpick so there are two halves and then quilt them as separate quilts. As I am not any good at free motion quilting and exquisite quilting designs it will probably be stitiched in or close by the ditch every so often to hold it together. But I will be sure and post a pic of it quilted sometime next year LOL

    Sounds great Lynnie. I like the idea of making it into two quilts also. I'll be looking forward to seeing it all done. Be sure to post some pictures of your display also if possible. I am sure I am not the only one that would like to see it. My curiosity is sure peeked.

    Here is a link to a Hunter's Star block method by Deb Tucker (sorry if this was already posted).
    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j...58187178,d.eW0
    I have a lot of 1.5" strips and this lends itself well to those. The triangles needed are small as well - 4" cut on the diagonal. Here is a block I made so you can see. I am hand piecing these because I need a portable project. The block is about 9.5".

    I just found this thread...thank you! I need to shrink this scrap pile down. I started reading through the thread, but OMG, there's over 180 pages! So, if I touch on something that's already been said, my apologies. I'm curious, how many of you use paper piecing in your scrappys? Do you really need to use the paper? What kind do you use?

    Thanks,
    Cindy
