    Wonderful ontheriver. I pinned them and gave you credit in the description line. Thanks for the ideas.

    Rail Fence

    Here is my first finish of 2014, a true scrappy since it was made with scraps left over from the Scrappy Trips Around the World I made last year. The backing is fabric I ordered online, waited six months to receive, only to find that it was the wrong color for the project I purchased it for -- but it worked perfectly for this Rail Fence. And the binding was the last little chunk of an orange homespun that I've had for about 15 years so I was glad to see it gone!

    It is being given to some old friends of my husband's who lost their home in Superstorm Sandy and have since moved to Florida. They won't be seeing much fall color there so I thought they might enjoy a small reminder of the colors they've left behind.

    Here's my first scrappy for 2014.
    It's called "Snowchurn" from Quilter's Cache and I added a piano key border.

    I was so inspired by your quilt . I literally ran to my sewing room.. pulled out 2 charm packs( I had no clue how I was ever going to use them) and started cutting. Thanks so much for posting.

    What an interesting scrappy quilt! It is different from many I've seen and the border really adds a lot of color to it.

    I don't know if there is an easier way to see which quilt is being referred to in the 'reply with quote' ... maybe the person responding could start by saying what page this quilt is on? thanks!

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

    Attachment 447671

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

    Attachment 447672



    Wow, love the idea of using the white/black for leading of the stained glass, will definitely borrow this idea!

    what width is the b/w strips? thinking I could make them a bit more narrow too ...

    Often if the entire quote is there you can see at the very beginning of the quote "Originally posted by" if you click on the forward arrows it will take you to the post they are referring to. At least that is how I sometimes backtrack...not sure if this is what you were asking for.

    Just posted this one on the UFO Challenge list ... I started cutting up scraps from one of three gigantic scrap bins I got at a fabric designer's tag sale a few years ago. I used a HST die on my Accuquilt Go. I figured I'd make a double sided quilt, but then ... hey, why not two quilts? Then I started sewing the leftover strips from using my Go and made a scrappy border. The other one (not pictured) is neutrals. Honestly, I never thought this would end up so big! It's shown on a King sized bed. Now to figure out the backing and where to sandwich it. That might have to wait until we get into our new house (I hope) as there is no way I can do it in our apartment.

    Sands, if you mean my border, no dryer sheets or anything else used ... just sewed, ironed and trimmed.

    Love scrappy quilts. Most of those I make are scrappy string quilts. Some have been controlled to a degree as to strip size but, others have been totally random. Some I like better than others but haven't made any that someone hasn't loved to cuddle under.
    Haven't posted for a while but pictures of some of the quilts have been posted in the past. Most all have been donated to Project Linus. Finally stopped counting at 700.
    Use it, re-use it, use it up.

    SO am on post 38 and have been enjoying all afternoon by the warm fire. We are having A bitter cold spell, last night on the news they were showing photos of our local homeless shelter. All the beds were full and people were sleeping on the floor. No one will be turned away. It has been in my thoughts all day Pop! A lightbulb went off. Tomorrow when I get up, the go cutter is coming out, cutting many squares as possible, sewing my little heart out. No binding just sEW and turn. Just to make many in a short amount of time. They need twin to fit the cots and they also showed Mother's with baby's. So crib size also. Wouldn't,t it be great if we all could do some? Nothing I am working on is as important t as A need for a warm quilt right now.

    \

    Thanks WRaez ... it's still a favourite of mine. I keep it draped over the foot of my bed, and continue to enjoy looking at it. I seldom re-make patterns, but I do expect I will make another one, sometime!

    A TOT black works really nice, in order to give a bit of movement.
    Likewise you can see that my white was not "white" but a cream with a bit of a teal print in it. It is actually an antiqued print with almost a smokey hue as well as spots of fake rust in places. Actually at one quilt show it got critiqued for real smoke damage. Unfortunately, you can't chase a Judge down later and say, excuuuuuuuuuuse me, please take a good look!!!

    Yes, you can do it whatever size strips you want ... it's your quilt.
    The pattern is available from CozyQuilt.com

    Not everyone has the same number of posts showing per page, so if you are wanting to post a reference, it is best to use the post #.
