    Oh...you have given me SUCH a great inspiration of HOW to use the small piece of quilted piece I have....

    THANK YOU !!!! Didn't look to see WHEN this picture was posted...but since I'm new to this site, I have just begun looking at the "RECENT TOPICS" !!!! WONDERFUL !!!!

    BUT...don't know about one inch squares...may go larger than that. My quilt on the Toile and Irish Chain, the squares were 2 1/2 inches cut.

    Thank you, again, for the inspiration !!!

    To all: Thank you! Scraps are wonderful, aren't they? I've collected bits of fabric wherever I've lived, wherever I've wandered. It's like piecing a bit of life itself! For those of you who love scrappy-look, the applique wreath in the center came from Judy Martin's "Scrap Quilts" (1985). That part is 20" square. The rest all exploded from there! I wanted to give the book credit when I sent in the photo...I was just so darn excited to get the attachment to work, I forgot :lol: !!!

    Leslee, your quilt is beautiful. I haven't done any intricate applique, but I hope to some day. By the way - I'm also wondering how many 1" squares there are!?

    You can't trick me! I am sure that quilt was done with just smoke and mirrors. No one in their right mind would sew 1" squares. LOL Oh wait, we are talking about Leslee. Never mind.

    Ruth, I LOVED the Irish Chain quilt that had 1 inch squares and VOWED that I would not do 1 inches - so I did 2 1/2 inch squares (2 inches). You MAY want to consider THAT - then you could strip 6-8 L-O-N-G sections and reuse that particular sequence over and over....just a thoughts.

    I found that the 1 1/2 inch squares were just as lovely, just not as many repeats in the quilt....did not miss the extra patterns when all was completed.
