This first picture gives you an idea of controlled scrappy.

 

This picture gives you a look at scrappy.....in neutrals.

Nana,

Oh my Goodness...they are both beautiful. I think I will do the controlled scrappy for this first go around. I am wondering what size this quilt will be when we are done if using the 40ct jelly roll? I would like to do one for my bed (queen) and one for my sisters baby (crib).

Does anyone know how many blocks to do for each one?

Thanks so much,

Char

I'm waiting to see what is in the jelly roll and then decide controlled or scrappy. I tend to lean toward controlled  but maybe I'll take a walk on the wild side. :o}

Char,

according to the pattern, the quilt measures 54" x 68". You could add rows until you get the size you want or you run out of fabric. If you're going truly scrappy you won't be in danger of that happening.

Thanks Kris,

I will dig deep into my stash to find enough to make a scrappy queen!

Is the 54" x 68" too big for a crib quilt?

Thanks,

Char

For a crib size quilt I would probably do 3 completed blocks with sashing  across and 3 down.   Without border this will measure 42 in square.    If you do 3 across and 4 down you will have a 42 x 56 quilt.  I wouldn't add additional borders just consider my sashing and cornerstones as my border fabrics.

No ladies this one isn't new.   But the pattern is still available at   www.quiltville.com  in the free pattern section.   It is called Boxy Stars and makes a gorgeous quilt.

While I was hating my July scrappy blocks and thinking about what I can do to make me happy about them, I decided to do the Controlled Scrappy in the meantime.  This top is now finished and put into the "to be quilted" pile.  I had the perfect border fabric to go with the blocks.  I am sure one of the little girls in the family will love it as much as I do.

Helen!  Love your Jewel Tone Boxy Stars quilt!  It's beautiful. You are so right--a little girl is going to LOVE it!  One of these days I want to make this pattern. 

Good luck with your July Scrappy!  Have you sewn it all together yet?  Putting sashing around the blocks really helps to organize and quiet the business. 
IF you already sewed it together-it's not to late to cut it up!   No one will ever know!!

Thank you so much Judy.  Yes, my July scrappy is posted.  I did star sashing and just love it!  Just picked up backing and plan on getting it on the frame this week to quilt.  I'll post it in the media section.
