    I have such a hard time with scrappy! ( I over think them) But this didn't turn out so bad!! But this was a planned scrapping.
    Still can't do the other kind.

    That is a very soft scrappy. You have great balance.

    I know! Scrappy is so time consuming for me too- I move and move and move things! But they are my favorite quilts so it's worth the time.

    Yours is beautiful. I love the colors.

    Beautiful! I love the colours! It is scrappyish - I think you're like me, have to have a bit of organisation in your scrappyness! LOL

    My scrappy's have to be organized. I can't just take a bunch of scraps and do something with them. It's so bad!! :oops: :oops:

    I really like this quilt. Great, soft colors. Did you do your own quilting? Looks great.

    I'm not sure, whether I can do scrappy or not. I've never tried it and my stash leaves much to be desired. But yours turned out very very nice.

    Ducky, I did my own quilting. I'm new at it. But I'm learning! I got a long arm a couple of weeks ago. And I'm loving it!!

    Oh I love that -- planned scrappy or not!!

    Someone once gave me this "pattern" for a scrappy quilt or I saw it on TV or whatever -- but it stuck in my mind:

    Cut your scraps into squares (any size you want). Put all squares into a paper bag and shake up. Pull one square out (without looking!) and then pull another out (don't look!) and sew together. Continue in this fashion and make your 9 patch or 12 patch or whatever and presto -- you have a scrappy quilt!!

    OR get your six year old to pick the scraps! That what I did for Joey's lap quilt (in my avatar). And I DID NOT cheat - although sometimes I wanted to!

    I really like your color choices, very nice. I over think too, and it drives me crazy. I think that's the reason I don't get new proj started and finished.
