    Holy cow, everyone! What a terrific quilt show!

    Seeing is believing: "scrappy" does not equal "CRAPPY."

    There are some really stunning quilts in this thread. I will continue to watch. It's very hard to believe some of these are scrappy, but how amazing the work you can do with just a bunch of scraps and turn them into works of art. Great job everyone!!!!

    I posted this last week but maybe some didn't see it. This is my very first scrappy and my granddaughter claimed it as her own when she saw me making it. I was just fiddling around with the idea of trying a scrappy, but it sure won't be my last.

    I wonder if this thread surpasses all others for length, LOL. Isn't it wonderful to see all this creativity? I LOVE IT!!!!!!

    Here is what the Dictionary says;

    scrap·py
    1    [skrap-ee]
    –adjective, -pi·er, -pi·est.
    made up of scraps or of odds and ends; fragmentary; disconnected.

    IMHO ~ I think of scrappy quilts that are made of leftovers from other sewing projects (quilts, clothing, etc). But others may think that multiple color/shades/fabrics make a scrappy. There really is no hard fast RULE for scrappy quilts.

    Congratulations to all of you who have made the most out of your yardage! I tend to like those which don't look like scrappies mostly because there can be a lot of time spent "playing"/planning that go into them. I like the Victorian scrappies also (although I'm lacking the proper term). The salvage scrappies are growing on me, but no matter what, I think it is great when people use up what they have and make the most of it. These are all great scrappies! Thanks for sharing!

    This is one I'm currently working on. Right now it's only about 22" long, but I've still got TONS to add to it. No rhyme or reason for it, but my DD who's 2 wanted to help me sew, so she's picking out the scraps and handing them to me to sew together.

    Made for my DH's dog - one side

    It's reversible - this is the other side. Totally scrappy.
