It was a bit harder than making a regular 'matching blocks' top but I managed to get it to all come together. I added the red sashing and the blue border. It isn't quilted yet but that is the easy part. Just thought I would show you a really 'scrappy' quilt top. Just proves that all scraps have a use. :-)
    Such bright colors! That red was perfect for these scraps. Nice finish!

    my recent scrappy

    Here is a picture of what I did with the left over strips I put together for border. I am making it into a baby quilt for my best friend who is trying to get pregnant.

    with borders

    I put borders on today! Don't look too closely, you will see where I put too many of the same strips too close together.

    I agree. Love the white. You're making me rethink my contrast choice which is usually black!

    They are random strips left over from the heart string's quilt. I had put them together for the border and these are using up the left overs. I used white borders as it is for a baby. I prolly should have used a little bit wider white strips between the color but it will have to do.

    Thank you all!

    I think the narrow white strips are just right Michelle! The wider outer border sets it all off lovely! So how are you going to quilt it???

    I quilt by hand and with all the seams I may just stitch in the ditch on the color and do some kind of pattern on the white. I'd like to use a varigated thread or just white. Not sure.

    I am sure it will be gorgeous Michelle..I am too impatient to hand quilt, but I love to see everyone else who is brave to do it. I did start a quilt...maybe 4 years ago,...still waiting to be finished. Here's a picture of what I did do!

    I just remembered... I pulled out all the toe catching stitches in the centre, as I thought it looked awful compared to my border quilting...but I bet I am as bad as I was at the beginning now as I haven't done a stitch since LOL!

    Isn't it amazing how our fur babes take over quilts? Around here it started with a wonderful afghan I bought at an estate sale for myself. Our Puggle took it over. So I made another one just for me. That was claimed by our chihuahua - terrier mix. Then I made a couple of quilts for curling up with in the house. Do I need to tell you what happened? One is now in the Puggle's dog bed and the other is the property of the chihuahua mix.

    I CAN believe that...but I do find that it's a special feeling when you get to SHARE a quilt with our fur babies, Millie Dog, who is actually my son's dog, comes running as soon as I have a quilt in my arms, waiting for me to sit down so she can get under it, so funny

    Not sure if this is OK or not but I found this link for a bunch of scrappy patterns & thought this might be an OK place to post it (hey... maybe it'll produce more scrappy quilt pictures!). Enjoy!

    Really fabulous! So, hey... if you find one quilt just hanging around -- not going home with anybody -- my address is... LOL!

    I really like the sashing with scrappy blocks. I'm about to begin a project for a local charity in which I will be making simple clothes for small children as well as receiving blankest. I suspect there will be lots of scraps and it would be really great to use those to make quilts, which are also needed. The sashing gives the scrappy blocks more definition and seems less busy. It is wonderful. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks like a great index site Rebecca. I added to favorites to looks at more later. Thanks!
