    I have paged through the pictures 2 x now. Maybe the third time I will do as you have done!

    I love scrappy quilts!! They always remind me of the sacrifices the older generations made. They often had to use worn out clothes, feed sacks, blankets for batting, etc. Money was not there and they were the epitome of making something wonderful from nothing...whether it was quilts, clothes, or food :) I have 6 quilts of my great-grandmother's and great aunts....they were poor, the quilts are all scrappy, and I love them dearly :)

    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!!
    Me too! I love the interupted white diamonds.....where did you get the pattern? I love it! All the quilts are fabulous, but that white diamond one really catches your eye.
    Thanks!

    Not sure if you mean my quilt thanks!.... but just in case you do, it is a variation of the Jacob's Ladder pattern, of which there are several. Basically it is made from 4 patches and HST in a 9 patch formation. Three 4 Patches running diagonally, with the HST placed with dark sides touching 4 Patches and two opposite corners turned dark side out which form the diamonds when blocks are turned...clear as mud?

    :lol: :D
    OK, Izy, you'll have to do a tutorial on this process now...because it is clear as mud! LOL!

    What absolutely fantastic scrappy quilts, I just may have to try one myself, goodness, I have enough scraps to probably cover the whole town of Alturas. LOL You all have inspired me to get the scraps all ironed and cut and pieced.

    My goodness GML -- that is beautiful !! I kept seeing all sorts of patterns in it the longer I looked -- you were so right to call it "controlled scrappy. The consistent use of the fabrics made the patterns. Thanks for sharing -- Mim
