    I like all three of them. Changing the sashing colors sure changes the look of each of them.

    Very nice scrappy quilts, looks like you had a few!! Did you use them up? They look like at least double size quilts.

    how did you do this. Did you just sew the strips until you had the width or length you wanted? I too like the yellow I think I must give this one a try.

    I never considered the fabric I have as scraps until I read the board. I have always used scraps, and I'm totally fine with them. I was reading on the board about someone that wanted to stuff dogs beds with scraps. I wrote that I would gladly take them off her hands, and I just got a box. Now I have to figure out how to contain them before they consume me.. Loving life.

    I really like all three....very creative on your part. Come on over to my house and help me use up my scraps. Three excellent quilts at no extra fabric to buy, way to go.

    Very nice use of your scraps. I like "mindless" sewing and will get more accomplished when the strips are precut. Keep up the great work!

    Yes I did. I sewed the number of strips together and then trimmed into the correct lengths so I had squares. Since it is scrappy, it doesn't matter--when one strips ends, you start another one. Then, I pressed and took it to the cutting board and trimmed to the correct length.

    Saw the red one, thought that was pretty, scrolled down to yellow - wow, the different sashing changes it so much... Saw the black one! Oh my gosh, it's gorgeous. Looks like stained glass!

    what a great use for scraps. it's amazing that the same pattern looks so different just because of the colors used. great job
