    Scrappy Backing

    Here is the scrappy back I've been working on. It took 676 five inch squares and will go with a Civil War Autograph variation quilt top. I hope to be able to afford to have it quilted by the end of the year.

    DDM- that's pretty enough to be the front.

    Scrappy Many Trips Around the World

    Here is my latest finish, Many Trips Around the World, a well-known Bonnie Hunter pattern. This pic really doesn't do it justice. The quilt is 98 x 98 and according to my calculations used 14.65 yards of fabric. I bought a wide back for it -- didn't have the patience to piece the backing for it -- but the top is all from stash.

    That is a beautiful quilt. I've never done a trip around the world, but this makes me want to try.

    Awesome, AWESOME quilts! I have been bitten by the scrappy bug.

    I moved recently and took the time to organize my fabrics and scraps in the new place. Made me realize that everything that I have made so far has been a planned quilt. Which left me with lots of scraps that I planned to use "sometime in the future." Well, that future has evolved into NOW.

    Found Bonnie Hunter, and recently found this thread. There's no turning back...

    The red and white star is a wall hanging for my kitchen. The triangles are my leaders and enders, all from fabric scraps from previous projects, and are on my design wall, growing as I work on others. Controlled scrappy, but scrappy. I'm trying... will take a while to get completely scrappy and lose all control.

    Just thought I'd share so far... THANK YOU all for showing your wonderful quilts. I am SO inspired!

    Very nice. I especially like the star--but, I'm partial to red!

    I like your controlled scrappy Susan. I, for one, am another that prefers controlled scrappy. I've seen others state they do too, so you are in good company either way.

    I love the string quilt with the black diamond centers. Did you applique the black center onto the finished block?

    Kat, if you mean the one by meemersmom in post #158, that's one I have been admiring, too. I think she said (or possibly I deduced) that the string blocks are made and then assembled with black squares using the 10-minute block method.

    Is there a way to navigate this forum by the post number? For example, I wanted to take a look at the quilt y'all are taking about in post # 158, is there a quicker way to find it than by hopscotching back through the pages?

    And now that I've taken a look at that quilt, I recognize the quilt block. It's a paper-pieced block from Quilter's Cache called "Michigan."

    I have a few more scrappy quilts to add to this thread. I piece quite a few of my quilts with a treadle sewing machine, they are quiet and I can sew after everyone has gone to bed and no motor to make noise.
    The first quilt is Cartwheels from Moda Bake Shop, #2 is Smokey Mountain Stars a free Bonnie K. Hunter pattern, #3 is Star of Destiny by Donna Lynn Thomas(it won honorable mention at my guild's show this year). #4 is a Log Cabin also entered in this year's guild show, it didn't win any ribbons; however the quilt judge was just amazed at the variety of fabrics, over 200. All but the #3 are charity quilts, for either in-need kids or wounded soldiers.

    Are you referring to this one by Lsew2212? If so, yes, it's very pretty.

    It's strip/string pieced starting with a black strip in the center diagonally and adding various colored strips on each side, building out the square to whatever size you've chosen. Hope that helps - - -

    OOPS Sorry, but the flying geese is not my variation. This is a photo of one I admired on forum. Will post the correct picture of mine.
