Really nice Connie.  Looks like it could have made a dent in the stash pile.....maybe a small dent...;)

Wow! I would have guessed that you slaved over picking out each of those fabrics at the quilt store.  The scraps look fantastic together.  Beautiful quilt.

The pattern for the scrappy bedspread is simply: Cut a square (I used a 6 1/2"), cut the square in half. Cut a strip of material 1" wide by 7 1/2; sew the half triangles to the strip. Trim to the finished size you want. Mine were trimed to 6".

Sorry, the strip should be 1" finished, so cut it 1 1/2". I also randomly separated my scraps into dark,medium, and light and alternated the three in the quilt. I tried not to use the same fabric for both sides of one block.

I've seen this pattern before and intended to start one, but never got started.  Your quilt is lovely.  Thanks for reminding me how beautiful this pattern can be.  This should be a great way to finish up leftover fabrics as I finish projects.  I hate putting scraps back on the shelf where they just get forgotton.  I like the fact that you mixed up the block colors.  Good Job!

Beautiful quilt.  I really like scrappy but find it hard to put scraps that don't match together.  Once the're together though, I really like it.  Think I'll try this one.  Thanks for sharing.

The quilt is beautiful.  It looks as if you had a lot of solids - or are they small prints?  (This is my first comment on any blog page - - I thought I'd join the rest of the world.  I thought that among a bunch of quilters would be a great place to start!)

Ooo, I made the same quilt pattern, but I love yours, mine was a lap quilt to be sent to Mexico for an orphanage there. Love the scrappiness(is that a word?) of it.
