This group is for all of you (and you know who you are) who can't let go of even the smallest piece of fabric! You just love scraps!

I found more scraps. Giving them to a friend and let her make something out of them.
Very pretty. I know what you mean about not having enough room for all our quilts!
Sherri, I love it, it sparkles with all of the different blues and light neutrals.
Finally finished this scrappy. Now where do I put it. All my beds already have quilts on them.
OH geeze, I should have read all the post ... it is the Box KIte pattern. DUH
Love the qults. Diane your quilt looks like the Box Kite pattern by Bonnie Hunter, I am doing that one now . Along with two other BH patterns that are all cut and ready to piece together. But before I can start those, or finish those, depends on how you look at it I guess, I have to make my granddaughter's t shirt quilt. For her college adventure this fall. I get so caught up in scrap quilting I hate to stop for another project. I have been doing some strip pieced blocks that I have no plan for at the moment, but they are fun to do, and when I feel like sewing and have little time I can go in for a short time and piece a few blocks. Today I am picking up my Blue Ridge Beauty from Brenda who long arm quilted it for me. So there will be some binding sewing in my near future.
I was in the same challenge as Connie & here is a pic of my entry. It has 69 different fabrics in it. This was a fun challenge.
Sherri....your block looks fine to me....I will be anxious to see your blocks set together.
Diane.....your blue quilts are really pretty. I agree about fabric breeding in the dark.....
Here is a top I made for a HST challenge in another group. It is "Box Kite" by Bonnie Hunter, but I made it larger. I may learn to enjoy doing scrappy quilts yet. Everything in this top was from scraps and I can't even see that I made a dent in them.
I was gifted a box of old fabric (1980s) this winter and decided to try to use up the blue instead of cramming it onto a shelf to sit for several more years. I have made these 2 extra large queens and there hasn't even been a dent put into the stack. Fabric really does breed in the dark!I'm sure if you look closely you all will find pieces that you've had in the past or--still!
Sherri I missed your 1st post also, I would NOT have done them all over again, I would have just gone with what I had and said to heck with instructions, there are no mistakes in quilting, only unplanned design choices.
Sherri, for some reason I wasn't seeing that anyone had posted in this group so I'm sorry to be so late in answering your 1st question. I have not made this quilt, but I can see where it would drive you crazy if you didn't redo the blocks. Very frustrating mistake I'm sure.
