    I had a bunch of squares laying around with different prints on them and decided to do a fun quilt with them. I had more of some and I just decided to put them together in the order they were in and see what came out. Well this is what came out of that venture and I know that several colors are bunched together but I wasn't trying to make a masterpiece, just trying to use up the squares.

    I like it and that is what counts right? :)

    I bet if you look at it you can see all the other projects you have made. I think the scrappier the better and you can go nuts trying to lay them all out perfect.. perfect is just this, reach in the pile add one on and you get a very pretty quilt top like you must whipped up. I find my scraps are all over the place color wise.. yours seem to follow a general theme .. softer colors. The red really pops and is a nice little zip.

    I love a simple scrappy quilt!, Do you think you'll quilt it, or tie it?

    I have quite a few more squares that I could use up and make another quilt but of course these squares that are left are smaller than the ones I used to make this quilt top. It would take a lot longer to sew them all together. I think there is 200 of those little ones left in my stash i think.

    Looks good to me, I have a lot of squares I cut out several years ago that I need to use up. I always decide to make a different one and usually give most of mine away. Maybe I will try to get those made up this year.
