    I am sooo happy that I had started this thread (back in July '11).

    Love all the scrappy quilts that everyone is sharing.

    The BAD thing is now there are MANY scrap quilts on my bucket list .... but then I have LOTS and LOTS of scraps to make all those on the bucket list. hehehe

    OK ... so here's one of mine ...... The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt

    I did this as a Quilt Along here on the QB with some wonderful ladies. When I started I had done virtually no paper piecing, and soon built up my PP skills.

    Almost all the fabrics came from my stash, except the backing, borders, sashings and cornerstones.
    111 unique blocks! 144 fabrics used!!

    Each block has a different quilting design.

    With all the lovely LA quilting, the back could be used as a whole cloth ....

    With many of the same Ladies, I continued on and did the sister quilt to the FWS .... The Pony Club Sampler Quilt.

    While I used the PC pattern, those that are familiar with the book will notice that not all the blocks are in the book. Some of these were added for my own personal farm and rural life stories. Also, I included a block for each of the countries that the other Pony Clubbers were from. At times it really did seem like an old fashioned quilting bee ... even though we were doing it virtually!

    During the FWS I mastered my PP skills. For the PC, my goals were to become comfortable with fussy cutting as well as doing y-seams. Every block was PP'd, even the ones with curves!

    72 blocks ... 148 fabrics ... many are repeats to the FWS fabrics. Although I did buy several novelty fabrics for the theme. It was fun as we traded fabrics between the PC'ers too!

    Again, each block was done with it's own quilting design ...

    Jeanann -
    I love the simplicity of the first quilt. What are the measurements of initial squares and the frames? I do a lot of scrap quilts with a group who makes quilts for seniors, and this is something a group of people can construct together. Thanks, Paula

    QuiltE, Your posts 2104-2106 are simply jaw-dropping. I am definitely in awe. What a wonderful job you did. I doubt I will ever get any made of these patterns but sure great to see someone else's. Thanks for the fabulous pictures and my kudos to you!

    JW, Both your quilts are beautiful! You and I use many of the same colors. I made a Corn and Beans throw for my daughter-in-law about 10 years ago and I've had that star quilt on my Pinterest board for a while (I read her blog.) You did a good job!

    Thanks SandyIn Z4 ... When I started the FWS (the first one), I really did not think I could do it either. Instead of focusing on the whole thing, I decided to just do one block at a time. One or two would be potholders ... three a table runner ... four a topper ... a few more a wall hanging ... a few more again a small quilt ... and so on!! Eventually I was possessed and knew I could do them all and finish the quilt. So YES you can! ... just start with one!

    Don't remember if I ever posted a picture of this scrappy before.
    I finished it a few months ago. I used a pattern from one of Bonnie Hunter's book.

    Daffy Daphne. I love your horses. They remind me of a simpler bunch of scrappy blocks I made (can't find pix) using coloring pages animal outlines cut like jigsaw puzzles.

    I contacted Jenny Bowker (The pattern designer/teacher) and she is going to teach a class at Empty Spools in Osilomar, CA in 2014. She currently does not have the pattern (Sparkle) for sale but is considering it after seeing the response to it. Also her book is not ready yet, but she put me on a contact list to be notified when it is. If/when I hear more I will post it for you. You might also contact her on her website and let her know that you, too, would like to buy the pattern. www.jennybowker.com. Happy quilting. Jan

    My Avatar Quilt ... Stained Glass ...

    All the fabrics were "leftovers", mostly from the same project.
    Backing is a solid cream ... bought to finish it.

    I got carried away when making the strip sets/tubes.
    So then had enough to make a smaller version ...

    There were still strips left, so I made a couple of runners.
    Only one in this photo, but they are both the same size ....

    Mine? or are you talking about a different quilt?

    If so ... thanks!
    Though I did learn a lot about "value" ... the glass parts need to be a good contrast to both the white and black of the leading in the windows. If you look at mine, you will see some of the lights are great against the black, but just not enough definition to the white lead. Likewise some darks are just too close to the black lead, but awesome for the white.

    It's a great scrappy project ... easy and fun too!

    Is this in one of Cozy Quilt Strip Club books or is it a stand alone pattern? I have issues with color values. I'm using a Ruby Beholder to see dark values vs. light values for a Buggy Wheels pattern I'm using to help downsize the scrap basket.

    Your quilt is stunning thanks for posting it.

    Mine was in a book ... not saying that it doesn't come in a stand alone pattern though!
    The book has a lot of good patterns, so it is well worth it.

    When I did that quilt, I just grabbed fabrics I thought would be good ... didn't know anything about value. Learned a lot as a result!!

    Since then, I have acquired a Ruby Beholder, though we have not become good friends. I guess a need a lesson!!

    Best option I have found is to photograph fabrics together, then print them in black and white ... that helps show the values. Though if doing this quilt again, I would simply do it by laying both the white and black against the fabric and seeing if there was enough contrast for both.

    Thanks! ... I really do like the quilt and smile every time I see it. The large one I had hand quilted and kept for myself. The smaller one, I had machine quilted and gave as a wedding gift. I machine quilted the runners and kept them for myself.
