    Two Scrappys

    The first is just a string quilt. My SO asked for one that fit just his side of the bed (I'm a cover hog) but long. it is 65 x 95, just scrap strips, the backing is just a striped sheet, an old wool blanket as batting (he likes weight), binding from my stash, so nothing bought. One more off my to do list, hurray.

    The second is my attempt at making a wedge quilt using scraps, in this case crumbs. It is lap size, 54 x 64. Just the top right now.
    The pics are terrible, a photographer I am not.
    Have a great day, thanks for looking.

    "just" a strip quilt you said, which is beautiful in my opinion!
    Lots of seams and hard work for both quilts. really nice

    They both demonstrate your eye for color and your excellent piecing skills. I really like both of them.

    I like them, especially the lap quilt! That's a very interesting design with the white bits throughout.

    such beauty from scraps. I love scrappys and you have two beautiful ones here.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    The string quilt will be loved to death with that wool filler blanket. I made a duvet cover for one of mine and it's the coziest cover in the house....

    Really like the wedge cut quilt...very creative. Thanks for sharing.

    Love both of them. How did you make the wedge quilt? I have never seen one like that.
