I only have two pictures on this computer, but these are both my Judy Martin log cabins - all scraps.

This is the Snake River one.


There are seven days in a week and Someday isn't one of them.

GO RAVENS!!!

This one had no name, but I call it Blue Skies and Starry Nights.

Funny, I used to hate scrappy quilts, but I find that if I control them, I just love the way they turn out.

I made this one based on the 1600 quilts. BUT mine is a controlled scrappy.

Thanks for sharing!

Katiemedarlin- yours are both beautiful! I think using a variety of fabrics with those patterns really adds a lot of interest & depth to the quilts.

Willqiiltforchoc- I love the color & zigzag in yours! It's really a happy, vibrant quilt.

Two step - that's one of the most appealing 1600 quilts I've ever seen! I love the rainbow effect! I also like that there are no same fabrics side by side!! That makes me a little crazy in my own 1600 quilts, lol. What's your secret?

A quilt my daughter did. She did the top and had a lady quilt it in a puzzle design.

Tory my quilt is only based on the 1600 quilts. I layed out each strip in a specific spot, no fabrics were repeated. Rainbow effect was exactly what I intended. It took a lot of work but I love it. I made it for a Challenge for a longarm group that I belong to. thanks

● ● ● My first thought was "just click on my link" for the Scraps to Treasures Challenges. You can see over 250 gorgeous scrappy quilts. I've been under the weather this week otherwise I would have posted sooner. I'm happy to see the challengers have stepped up to share their beauties. I won't bore you with all of mine, but will share this one, because it is one of my favorites. In fact, I have recreated it several times and plan to write a pattern for it. (soon) It is so quick and easy.

● ● ● Here is the one I made two weeks ago. After I figured out all the measurements and chose my fabrics, it only took about three days to complete the top. Cool
It is 51x65"

(Not counting string quilts) here are several of my more scrappier ones I've done recently.
First is one done in a zig-zag pattern. It's a double sized quilt for one of my DGGS's. Although from a distance it looks like solid colors, most of the pieces are patterned.

This one is made up of 2" squares with the black squares making a diamond shape in alternate blocks. This one is a twin sized one for my other DGGS.

This is a t-shirt quilt for the daughter of a close friend. She played field hockey & she & her teammates swapped pieces of fabrics to wear as kerchief/headbands. She asked if I could incorporate them somehow...I used them for the sashings.

This was made from a Homespun Stars swap hosted by CBQ back in 2006. I guess it could be considered scrappy since no 2 blocks are the same! I'm currently working on another quilt from blocks that I didn't use in this one.

I almost forgot about this one. It's hanging on the wall in the living room. It has over 300 green fabrics which quite a few of you helped me collect. Thank you!
