Making it work

After my initial scrap shock and distaste, I've decided that this is a challenge.
To make these scraps work.
In an attractive way.
To prove that ugly scraps can make pretty quilts.
So...
I sorted them by color.
This is red.
So far, so good.
Scrap Solution?

    Now, if only my machine would come home from the repair centre, I should absolutely do the same to my ton of scraps...

  5. I was going to suggest the mono-color blocks the other day. I've made a few quilts this way with scraps and I love them. You can see them here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/mamaurchin/tags/campingquilt/

  12. I think that is what has kept me from working with my scraps up until now. I don't like them much. There is a lot of "old" fabric that I must have bought for some reason but can't remember. I'm working with pink today. From dark burgundy to light pink and I really like the overall look of it even though I don't like most of the fabric. This has been a fun experiment so far.
