    I should of looked up the book that I got it out of before I put this on but as soon as I find it I will let you know. It used
    1 1/2 inch strips and 2 1/2 in strips because that is what I had.

    Such beauties!!! love them all - one just as pretty as teh next one... keep up the good work; it inspires me to begin using scraps for a quilt soon - have a huge kitchen garbage bag of them now from the last quilts I made - so maybe time to diminish that supply....

    That third quilt has a very impressive border. Is it like a bargello? They are all wonderful. Clear out those scraps girl!

    I really like the first one. Would like the name of the patern so that I could make it as well - I have lots and lots of scraps and would like to use more of them up.

    Your quilts are beautiful. I've never seen a completely scrappy Rail Fence and I like yours. Scrap quilts just look so homey and comforting. Thanks for posting.

    Beautiful quilts, wonderful way to use up scraps...Judy Martin has awsome books and you can use up alot of scraps from some of her books...I do believe that the third quilt is from Judy Martin's book called Log Cabin Quilt book...here is a link to her site and pictures of hundreds of view quilts made from different books of her's....the third quilt here is called Finger Lakes Log Cabin... http://www.judymartin.com/Viewer-Photos.cfm

    They are wonderful! Bright, cheerful and large enough to have great side drops.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Beauties indeed! I love scrappies and I really like the first one, the pattern is so neat. You should post these on the scrappy thread, too!
