Scrappy Quilting Style

Scrappy describes my style of quilt making and I call it scrapish (I made up the word, I think).

I like to quilt with big blocks and use many different fabrics in one quilt.

My fabric choices are usually from different lines of fabrics and fabric designers. Lots of shades of one color or many different colors.

The fabric may be a true scrap or it may be yardage.

I usually take traditional blocks and use improvisational, or free-form, quilting techniques to cut them up and/or piece them together.

My hope is that this results in a quilt top that is a cohesively cobbled masterpiece :-).
