scrappy quilt

this top tonight. I can see using this pattern more......with patriotic prints, novelties, I Spy, etc. Directions are given for 4, 5, or 6 inch squares. I made this one with 6 inch. Guess tomorrow I better start quilting some tops since this is the third top I've finished in two weeks.

Oh, isn't that pretty - and I don't even 'do' scrappy as a rule. Building the continuity in like that, with the background and sashing, is a wonderful idea. Lovely. . In message , maryd writes

What a great way to use up a charm pack! I like how they float on the background -wonder what it would look like with a dark inner border, would that make the float disappear? It would be good for my growing collection of mini blocks too. Roberta in D

Wow! You're really on a roll, Mary! I like this one very much, too -- those soft neutrals are lovely.

Thanks, Sandy. The setting triangles and outer border are actually a tone on tone rose print that was given to me several years ago.

I was wondering what would be best to do with the newest addition to my stash. It is 50 5" squares of Fairy Frost in every color. Thank you, Mary. Your scrappy will be ahhhh, just right. It will probably take me days to decide on arrangement but that's my favorite part. Well. One of my favorites. Polly

I can put in a "plug" for a new book here. The title is "Loose Change: Quilts from Nickels, Dimes and Fat Quarters". It is a wonderful book for making scrappy quilts. Some are all using smaller pieces, some use some yardage to tie things together. And they are great for using divided into "colors" or "themes" as well as charm packs (nickels=3D5" squares), layer cakes ( dimes=3D 10" squares) and so forth. Showed the book to the person who schedules classes at the one shop and we promptly scheduled 3 different classes, one each in April, May and June. Everyone who sees the books wants to buy a copy. Great value. (NAYY.....)

I really like scrappy quilts. That one is terrific. Putting the blocks on point is perfect. Taria
