    Try this is you are not sure about trying a scrappy quilt

    If you don't think you are a scrappy quilter, give this a try. If you do a controlled block, like shown here, you may find you like it. I had a bunch of 2-1/2" by 12" scraps that were enough to make two 4-patch blocks. And the HSTs were made from leftover charms. And yes, these blocks do need a good pressing!

    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.

    I'm on my third quilt by judy. hop on over to the Mystery rain Ride by Judy.
    she gives excellent clues and directions with lots of photos. they great for anyone to try.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Nice way of using up some scraps. Might make a good exchange block swap with batiks.
