    9-Patch Mash-Up

    Here's my latest finish, a top that will be donated to victims of the Colorado Fires. I call it 9-Patch Mash-Up. I used a bunch of 3-inch 9-patches from the days when I ran a year-long swap of them, then lost interest in the project I originally had in mind and was left with, literally, hundreds of the little darlings. I also wanted to use up some of the contents of my overstuffed plaid drawer. Definitely a utility quilt but once it's quilted (by someone else!) it should keep someone warm on a cold Colorado night.

    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.

    So many wonderful scrappies...here's one my 15 year old granddaughter made today. We grabbed some girly scrap 2 1/2" strips & put together the 1600" jelly roll quilt (though it wasn't anywhere close to 1600"). She isn't here long enough to get it quilted for the guild meeting in 2 weeks, so I will quilt it for her. I worked on a boy one, but didn't get it quite finished...will post a pic later once both are quilted. They will both be donation quilts for the pregnancy center. She couldn't believe she could finish the whole top in about 6 hours...doesn't she look happy?

    Found this thread tonight and cannot stop looking at the fantastic scrappy quilts.......I am a scrappy lover at heart and to have them all in one post is amazing. I am retiring the first of September and cannot wait till fall and winter to start piecing and quilting.....so many ideas here. That will motivate me to clean and organize my sewing room. I have started organizing. Had carpal tunnel surgery and I have 4 more wks or recovery...then go back to work ( I am a part time nurse working two days a week.......so after sick leave.....a total of 6 days left to work...........hope to be organized by retirement time...........so exciting.......I cannot stop looking at these...

    This is my Scrappy Sampler. I wanted to make this my "Quilt of Firsts". This was my first time quilting feathers, making a sampler, making a scrap quilt, making scalloped borders and my first time making a hand pieced block (the Drunkard's Path).

    Love them all. I'm not a scrappy person but I'm thinking by the size of my growing stash that I'm going to have to break down and do a few scrappy quilts. They are beautiful quilts.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    Ps 150, your Scrappy Sampler is very nice indeed, and that scalloped border is really the finishing touch. I've never done one but it just joined my list of Things to Do.

    Thanks! I saw a picture of a similar quilt in a book and wanted to make this, but there was no pattern, so I just found patterns for the individual blocks and went from there.

    ~ ps150 what a lovely sampler. samplers do not usually catch my eye but this one did as i like how your colors and background coordinate and that scalloped border. nice job.

    ~ i so cannot wait to teach my 10 yr old dgd how to sew or at least introduce her to it. the sewing bug totally blew by my dd and i feel the need to share my sewing talent with someone.

    ~ i totally love this thread!!

    I have been away for a while, but I love scrappy quilts. Will try to add a picture of one that I did. I also plan on doing a Strip Twist quilt.

    VickiM: your DGD is so precious! It is so wonderful to bring a new generation into sewing/quiilting, isn't it?

    Lori S: your scrappy is so soft and comfy looking. Makes me want to snuggle inside of it. Amazing what you can do with 1"x2" scraps.

    Ps 150: beautiful job.

    PattinWisconsin: I love your log cabin with attitude. How cool is that. Did you do QAYG in strips?

    Here's the first and only real scrappy I've done, I had been on a real 30's repo tear, and these are the leftovers from that. I have a tendancy to give away or toss scraps, but I've decided to keep them within reason so I can make more scrappys.
