    Red face I sure am getting the hang of scrappy quilts-controlled scrappies that is:)

    Thanks to the generous and wonderful Bonnie Hunter, I dove into scrap quilting the first time with her Orca Bay Mystery and completed that last year. This year, I followed along her Easy Street Mystery, had a wonderful time, and created my favorite quilt to date. Best part? The quilt was made 100% from my stash! I did use different colors from Bonnie's, even though I love them, just because I had an abundant of my favorite orange and yellow fabrics and thought I should use them. Added blue and light brown and wallah! A happy quilt that I call Spring Melody! Bonnie's Easy street is a larger square quilt. I wanted to make a throw quilt and prefer rectangle quilts for that, so I omitted a row on each side and designed an applique border for top and bottom-machine appliques to end up with a 65x80 throw quilt that covers me from head to toe with enough to spare..I can even share with DH This is my second scrappy quilt and I am feeling an addiction coming on! I am starting to think in FQs lol. I even utilized the scraps from the scrappy quilt ,haha, to make runners and pillows for the living room. I will start another thread to post pics of these ( I have many and excited to share lol).Thanks all and happy quilting!

    Wonderful quilt! And don't forget to send photos to Bonnie Hunter's website 'Quiltville.com'.
    She's so pleased to see people's versions of her offerings.

    That does not look like a scrappy quilt at all. Beautiful work.

    Being pretty new to the quilt world I figured "scrappy" meant rough and ragged. Boy was I wrong! That is beautiful

    It certainly is a happy quilt. I love the colors. Yellow and orange often get a bad rap and you have proven how great they look.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    simply beautiful! i love your colors and fabric selection and your border addition just really makes it that much extra special too! bonnie hunter's easy street is also on my to-do-list. Your quilt has inspired me to make it once I finish the mystery quilt and one UFO that I'm working on now.
