    I just finished this quilt today. The top is made entirely from smallish scraps, and the back from larger scraps. The binding is made from the strips that were cut off the sides of the backing after quilting. I love scrappy quilts anyway, but this is the first time I made one that is really MADE from scraps, with no color scheme other than darks and lights. It's 101" square. Who knew you could accumulate so many scraps in under 3 years? And there are still more!!! Do they breed in my sewing room?

    Thought you might want to see what I started with, then the strips, then what was left.

    That is a wonderful use of your scraps. Nice job on BOTH sides. And yes they do breed when you are not looking.

    Beautiful quilt!!! What a great use of your scraps. I probably have enough to do several that size. It's just a matter of organizing (yuck)
    Thanks for sharing

    The log cabin quilt is quite beautiful and I am dying
    to make one as well.

    I really like how you organized your strips, too.
    Great idea!

    That is so beautiful. And you have SUCH a good eye for material selection and deciding the darks and lights. That's something I find difficult at time since it's not as obvious as it seems at times. Great job on this, you should be so proud of it.

    So beautiful! I love your layout too. I'm impressed that your scraps were so organized. Mine don't even come close, they are just sorted by color.

    So now you better get sewing with some new fabric and fill up those scrap bins for the next one! :D

    I LOVE the quilt and I am so glad I looked. I am just trying to figure out how to sort my scraps - love teh way you've done it. having the scraps cut prior to getting it together looks like a good idea.

    This is one of my favorite quilts on here!! I love log cabin and I love scrappy! Your organization is astounding. If only I could get to that point.... :roll:

    Your border is perfect!
    What width did you cut your strips?

    Oh--wanted to add I LOVE the design you picked. I almost did that one with my floral.

    I'm going to bookmark this so I can find it to look back...

    I think my favorite quilt of all time is a log cabin. I love the darks with the lights. Way to tame those scap bunnies. :wink:
