    Kyia, love the bright colors of your quilt.

    Jan, nice use of the large florals.

    I didn't know there was a "scrappy" section. I love the scrappy look. I will have to put this in "my favorites".

    Try doing scrappy, but with chosen colors...use only blue scraps to make a scrappy blue block, green scraps to make a scrappy green block, etc.

    This is the first scrappy quilt I made. I thought I didn't like scrappy but I do and when I do have enough scraps I will make another one like this. I donated this quilt to a Day Care Centre for mentally challenged people.

    My scrappy projects

    The 1st pic is supposed to be a scrappy bargello table runner. The 2nd pic is a baby quilt using Jacob's Ladder pattern. 3rd pic is a paper pieced block from Charise Creates. I added the scrappy border. 4th pic is a scrappyBroken Dishes mini wall hanging.. 5th pic is scrappy Dresden Plates mini hanging. The last pic is a single size quilt. Only top and backing. No batting. Not sure whether to call it scrappy as i actually cut out strips from my stash and not my scraps.

    Thanks for looking.

    God bless

    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.

    Here's my latest scrappy finish, a foundation-pieced string quilt for my husband's niece, who is facing surgery in a couple weeks. Her favorite color is green so I used a pastel green for the sashings and a green and white plaid for the back. I estimate that it used approximately 7.5 yards from stash. Of course the string bins don't look any less full ...

    declared war on my scrap bag: resulting reversible QAYG quilt
    Completely reversible king-size quilt; both sides are made totally from scraps.

    I used Warm & Natural batting. It's a bit heavy as it's got so many (thousands,
    it seemed!) seam allowances enclosed so it's nice to be able to "change" the quilt
    by just turning it over.



    This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.




    I dubbed this [string quilt] side "Just the Scraps, Ma'am"! I used black sashing
    and black binding on this side.



    These two photos show the reverse of each side.
