    Your quilts are wonderful and so are all of the others. I love scrappy. And to think there was a time not to long ago when I just couldn't put more than four colors in a quilt!! Here are a few of mine.Thank you quiltville for such great patterns, it looks like most of us have been using them.

    Thank You sooooo much. I am cleaning out my closet and turning many old kahki pants and plaid/floral shirts in this quilt...I think it would be perfect!!

    Everyone--thanks for so many more ideas! I never knew scrappy quilts could be so stunning!
    Is there a pattern or directions somewhere? I love, love, love it!!

I thought it to be lots of different color scraps from other projects, as descibed in the reach in the bag method.At any rate, all the quilts shown were very nice. I love color.
    that's what I thought which is why I haven't made one myself yet. I've been saving every piece worth saving in a drawer. It's about half full so I'm not going to start it yet. And I'm still trying to decide what I'm going to make. I'm leaning toward a Scrappie Jacob's ladder with light pieces in one bag and dark pieces in another. Now to get back to sewing so I can get more scraps!
    I think most of us who love scrappy quilts would agree that you can use a planned color scheme, just as long as the fabric is mostly left-over stuff from other projects...they don't have to be made from the 'reach in the bag method'

    They are all so beautiful! I simply can't choose a favorite. However, I have lots of Christmas fabrics I've collected over the years and am planning to make a scrappy Christmas quilt. Thanks for the idea "deedum."

    It looks like Lynnie's second quilt is the 'Storm at Sea' block.
