How wide are those little hot crossing bands?
    They're all just flimsys at the moment but I sure better get some "finished" since they're slated to be christmas gifts for my neices and nephews. lol The 9P wasn't difficult , just measure twice and a nice consistant seam allowance...piece of cake. I had only one that I miscut so I micut it again and called it a design change instead of a mistake

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I envy you all being able to have scraps to do those quilts, I don't have many scraps, I don't and can't afford to buy more than I need for a quilt.
    God Bless you all.
    Heather.

    Thrift shops and garage sales are great places to find scrap fabrics. I buy men's cotton shirts in large sizes from church rummage sales, to cut up into shirt quilts. Bonnie Hunter has some beautiful patterns for shirting fabrics.

    I have to say my biggest source of scraps is my charity quilting group. Our leader gives me scraps quite often, as she knows I love scrappy quilting.

    Heather1949, I also was going to say I shop for scraps at thrift stores. They often have half price sales on certain things. Childrens' dresses are usually like new because they outgrow them so fast. Also medical scrubs are made of very sturdy 100% cotton and come in lots of neat patterns as well as many solid colors. I try to get the largest sizes available in prints I like.
    Also, as sewbizgirl says, men's shirts are a great resource.

    I just got started looking at all these beautiful scrappy quilts. I have saved several pictures of some that I want to make and I am not through looking yet. Keep them coming.
    Blessed are the piece makers for their children shall inherit the quilts.

    I am not perfect and I do not make perfect quilts.
    I do make quilts with love and they are meant to be loved.
    If i can transfer those feelings with needle and thread,
    that makes me happy.

    Stunning! Does the top have a lot of 70s fabrics in it? Very pretty and I love the happy yellow.

    Lookyloo,

    This quilt (post 3045) is gorgeous! I would like to make one like it someday. What pattern did you use?
    As much as I hate it, my seam ripper is my best friend.
