This is the pile of scraps I had left after cutting all the I-Spy fabric. I didn't want to waste it! Would you believe that I was able to make 3 scrappy quilts from it? I only have one quilted, but the other two tops look very similar.
I chose this rectangle pattern because it was easy and it used 2.5 inch strips. I cut my strips into 4.5 inch rectangles and paired them up (I even strip sewed some of them). I made all the blocks before sewing the tops together so that I could divide the colors up between the three quilts.
I used some leftover blocks on the back to make it long enough. It looks a little plain, I think I should have set off the strip with some 1 inch black. What do you think?
Here are the 2 different kinds side by side (the other one I blogged about here). The scrappy one is quite a bit busier than the regular one. I would only notice that if I saw both types of quilts though. There are duplicate fabrics, (even triplicates) in the scrappy quilt but I think it worked out okay.
