Love it! I think I nearly have enough scraps to give it a try. Do you piece it by the block or big strips that you cut into blocks?

I usually piece it by the block, often using newsprint as a foundation to keep all the diagonals from stretching out of shape. That isn't as necessary on "good" cottons, but because I do so many charity quilts, I use a lot of cheaper cottons that really stretch badly. I've done a few where I don't use square blocks, but odd-shaped blocks for an overall crazy patch design. I posted two of those fairly recently and gave general directions of how I do it, so you could find them in my other listings. Have fun!.

Okay, I just looked back and here are the links to the ones I made with overall crazy patching in odd-shaped blocks. The second of these is the one where I showed in a photo and described how I did the strange blocks.

I love the colors, how you use them, and move them. Just beautiful.

I think I'd call this one "Order out of Chaos"! It's absolutely lovely - and such a wonderful way to use up bits and pieces.
