I recently started following Bonnie Hunter on Quiltville.com. She is the quilting expert on scrap quilts which are my favorite. I have been saving scraps since I started quilting and this June, I spent two weeks sorting thru my Rubbermaid tote. I started cutting up everything into 2 inch blocks so I could make a scrappy double irish chain.
The fun a part of scrap quilting is not worrying about colors matching and or having enough fabric to finish a quilt, because as with Mother Nature everything goes. It is basically more about value than color, that is a dark next to a light and of course there are medium values that sometimes act as darks and sometimes as lights, depending on what they are next to. They are the very thing if you ask me that gives a scrap quilt its personality.
