    Quilt Envy

    Okay, maybe, just maybe (I ain't sayin' it's so); but maaaybe I'm a tad envious . . . but why is it that many "scrappy" quilts don't look like the scraps I have????? I mean really, they don't look S C R A P P Y at all.

    Check this out . . . Red Pepper Quilts: The Finished Scrappy Pineapple Quilt

    OH MY GAWD, 2 die 4!!!!

    Okay, is it me or are these quilters perhaps affiliate sponsors and get this fabric free for promotion or what??? Really, I'm serious, I wanna know. Inquiring mindzzzzz wanna knowwww!

    End of rant.

    Cheers,

    A lot of the popular blog writers are sponsored by different fabric sellers and do get free packs of fabric.

      Lyric,

      Even fabrics that don't thrill you can look great once they are cut up in small pieces or strips and sewn into a block. Give it a try...it's true!

        It looks like she used all solid scraps to make the cool looking quilt. For me, I don't have that many solid scraps to work with yet. So mine would not look like that I all. I don't think that I have the eye or style of the many of the people who make scrappy quilts looks so great. And I've tried but mine just don't look right. Right now I'm making a quilt for my mom and trying to make it look thrown together no pattern and it isn't working, I keep putting a pattern in no matter how I try not to.

              And you know it! With what I am working with over here Scrappiness will more than likely be the majority of style quilts that I make (unless of course I either a) get a job or b) become independently wealthy.

                  Honestly, I have a hard time calling that pineapple quilt a scrappy quilt. Yes, it's all different colors, but I think because it is all solids it is more of a "controlled scrappy" if that makes sense.

                  When I think of true, scrappy quilts, it's a mixture of colors, prints, styles, etc. Basically a quilt that uses what small pieces of fabric that you have.

                      I agree on the controlled scrappy! I'm doing this one right now and even though it looks scrappy, you are really thinking about the four square in the middle. I was so controlled that I placed all the four squares first. Now that is ocd. lol
