Not scrappy, but bits and pieces left from other Christmas projects. Rail blocks were made from Ebay purchase of my first jelly roll. I made rails from the entire roll to practice 1/4" seam. I've gotten LOTS of mileage from that roll!

Found I can do cornerstones! (When I have to cause don't have exactly enough border material left from some table runners.) Bottom border smaller than the other three? (A creative decision based on a life philosophy that decries excess!) (Or miscalculating how much white material was left from sashing another project.) Veiw from a galloping horse? Just fine!

Loved these Walmart bears -used them in about 4 different projects

I love your 'view from a galloping horse'. In Rosemaling class we walk to the farthest point in the room to show our work because it 'looks better from a distance'.

If I had exhibited your tenacity with scraps from the beginning of my quilting career, I am POSITIVE - - I would have produced more quilts AND, had more storage space! LOL <wave> Good show! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Wellllllll - I had a shoebox sized plastic container to put my leftover Christmas scraps in. Lid wouldn't go on - so I just kept putting things together until I could close the lid! :lol:

And no one would know they were leftovers -- you've added just enough gravy to freshen them!
