    I've seen some beautiful D9P quilts here lately, but this one is totally scrappy. The only order to it is that I really tried to keep the middle block a light print or a light plain fabric. It is the first one of these that I have made so there are many mistakes -- but who could see them in this wild quilt top. There are still 2 more rows of blocks to add. I don't know what I will use for the border -- it will have to be something to tone down all that wildness (and I haven't decreased my stash very much at all)

    I too love scrappy quilts and this one is coming along beautifully. Can't wait to see what you use to tame all of the wildness you mentioned. ;-)

    It looks marvelous! Amazing how those scraps do not decrease with the projects...they seem to grow instead! LOL. Thank you for sharing.

    Thanks for posting a picture of your scrappy DNP. I have been wanting to try that one and wondered how it would look with it made with nothing but scraps. I really like how yours looks. :thumbup:

    I've been wondering how it would look in all scraps. Thanks for showing yours - I see it looks great! I'm thinking not all quilts must have borders. You might want to consider just binding. Or if you feel a border is needed, I would opt for something that reads solid.

    I had not even thought of leaving it borderless - but good idea. Maybe I'll add another row of blocks on both the side and the end, making it 8 blocks X 10 blocks (heaven knows, I've enough stash left to make those extra blocks).
