    My scrappy quilts

    With so many people asking what to do with their scraps, I thought I'd post photos of what I've done.

    I have several photos I want to post but since this is the first time I'm trying to post photos on the new board it may be a learning experience.

    #1-2 are crumb block quilts, #3-4 are versions of lasagna quilts, sewing strips together lengthwise.

    The orange swirling monkey one-I didn't have enough monkey blocks so I made a couple strip blocks to even it out. I sew all my strips the same size together when I have them and then roll them and use them as borders and sashing.

    I should mention that most of my wild scrappy quilts go to children, they appreciate wild and crazy. The ones with patriotic fabrics are QOV's. I do planned QOV's also.

    Love your scrappys, they are all beautiful, but I love the floating scrappy blocks on the blue poka dot back ground best of all. I don't know it just seems they are dancing.

    Luv to quilt, I love your scrappys also so pretty.

    Holie Molie, do you ever have/had lots of scraps. Clever use of them. Now I'm curious as to what the quilts look like that you got all the scraps.

    What a nice lot of scrappy quilts. I make them but my scrap drawers never seem to get any emptier. One of the mysteries of quilting!
    God Bless,

    I sew with a group and receive a lot of scraps from them. We don't have a centralized spot for photos yet, they are scattered all over the web. The guy who takes the photos is the husband of the leader. He's big on photo taking, and will take photos of every quilt in all stages of completeness. And then posts them all. I think recently he's getting more selective of what he puts online.

    All wonderful scrappies! Just can't understand why anyone would want to put their scraps in the trash when such beautiful quilts can be made from scraps.
