Monday Design Wall -- Scraps!

Every project I work on generates SCRAPS! Does that happen to everyone? Above is a box of 2 1/2" squares I received from Martha a few Christmas parties ago. I have used many and added many along the way.

I have a "special project" of many-many deep blues/navy which generated an abundance of scraps. I cut more 2 1/2" squares and ended up with enough to make sashing stars. And ..... notice the 1996 Moda Fabric by Deb Strain which has been fermenting (like a good wine). I still had 3 yards.


While making the blue/tan quilt, I used the 2 1/2" squares of many colors for "leaders and enders" (credit to Bonnie Hunter / Quiltville). Although I cannot yet show the blue/tan, I can show off the scrappy quilt.

Off to Judy's Monday Design Wall Link Party at Patchwork Times to join many others.

Scrappy is beautiful but it scares me and I haven't been able to do it yet! I have, however, been cutting up scraps into squares so i will get there! Your scrappy project is great!

Your scrappy quilt is beautiful. I have fallen in love with 16 patch quilts: I may have to do another one.

It so cool to see all the things you can do with a 16 patch. Thanks for the inspiration
