    Question What's your favorite .........

    Scrappy pattern?
    I am in the mood to do something scrappy.. whenever I look at "scrappy" quilts or projects online , they tend to look extremely well matched and coordinated ... do you have a favorite , or a "go to" scrappy pattern? That doesn't need to be coordinated to look nice? lol

    Thanks for any input!

    Happy Sunday!

    I watched Jenny's video on crumb quilting and loved it. I made some nice appliques with the squares I made , by using teddy bear patterns, or fish or turtles etc. Making crumb squares is also relaxing. Even if you don't use them right away I like having them made up for future projects

    Another pattern I love for scrappy quilts is an all pinwheel quilt. You can make the pinwheels on the larger size if you have healthy-sized scraps, or make them smaller if that's what your scraps demand. You can choose a single background fabric for the vanes, or you can use all scraps by pairing up your lights and your darks.

    And I know what you mean by so-called scrappy patterns looking "extremely well matched and coordinated." I once bought a use-up-your-scraps book online. When it arrived, I had to ask myself, "So what do I do if I don't have a perfect set of rainbow-colored scraps in precisely the same amounts?" Not exactly the most useful book I've ever purchased!

    Under the Stars is good for scrappy. I made Esther's with batiks and gold fabric for the stars.

    I love scrappys and I have done many although I only have some because many give away, but my favorites are Bonnie Hunter´s Scrappy Trip Along
