    If I'm putting too many pictures on this Board, I trust someone will let me know! I don't want to bore people, but I do like to show my work :)

    This top uses two inch strips. I began by using Bonnie Hunter's pattern for Scrappy Trips shown on Quiltville. But I changed the size of the strips and decided to change the setting to this asymmetrical setting. The little inset squares on the right side, which were so easy to do, were my favorite part!

    I hope you'll take a look at Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville website, if you haven't already. She has some really great scrap patterns of there and she is the Queen of little bits of this and that, in my opinion :)

    I like it, I like scrappy quilts. Bonnie Hunter has some good patterns/ideas. I have done several of her quilts.

    I love those little blocks in the border. Just what I need to widen the backing of my baby quilt. Thanks so much for the good idea.

    She really does use her scraps well and I was delighted when I first found her site that she uses her scraps in the same way that I do, with keeping certain sizes. I also enjoy her comments, my favorite quote of hers being, "If the fabric is still ugly, it just means you haven't cut it small enough yet!"

    I agree - there is no such thing as too many pictures! :)
