    Oooo, I love it!! Thanks for posting. I've never had the patience to do anything but a couple of corduroy crazy quilts from scraps of stuff I used for kids clothes. The kids used them on their beds and they are long gone, but boy, were they warm! and heavy! :)

    It's nice, you've got some wonderful colors going there.  I love the scrappy look.

    Gorgeous! You have done a wonderful job of colour selection and organization. Doesn't look like scraps at all ;-)

      thank you for the compliments.every piece is a scrap(:except the backing fabric, there are 36 12"x12" blocks I used a lightweight wadding & its really comfortable to sleep under during our summer.I am so pleased you liked it.

    Terrific!  Did you do the 12" blocks first and then arrange them?  Or did you an overplan to start with?  It has great movement and I really like the edging.  Spectacularly neat and tidy!        rjf

      goodmorning to you my basic plan was to just throw all my fabrics on the floor, then start to colour sort them,into the colours that I liked.After washing/starching/ironing the bits of fabric cut out the 2"1/2 squares & the4"triangles +seam allowance. I had drawn-out a Jacobs Ladder on graph paper,roughly coloured in the pattern,contrasts etc.,I am now so fortunate to have a design wall, so each piece that I cut out I could put it up onto the wall then play with the coloured fabric pieces to get an idea of what it would be like.Then sewed the pieces together to make a block.Each block was then put on the wall then played about with again.I had put them straight, but once I had placed the blocks crosswise that opened up another design.That is the fasinating part (for me)how the colours interact with each other.Some of those blocks had just enough fabric to cut-out 1 square.(: Most of my quilts & wallhangings are made up of scraps.Ihave collected a lot of fq's over the years & try to make use of them.Just finishing a "Clays Choice" which I am making into a duvet cover,with a frill.I am a right scrapbag.June

        "I am now so fortunate to have a design wall"  What  great thing to have!  In my house, someone would put a piece of furniture against it.         rjf
