crazy rails quilt top

My crazy rails quilt top is complete! Each of those little logs (all 960 of them!) finish at 1" x 3". I love how it turned out and definitely plan to revisit this pattern again....either in a twin or king size next time. This quilt top measures 48" x 60". This is a great scrap buster, because almost anything goes! Gotta love that!

If I didn't have so many scraps myself, I would wonder how it is you never run out of scraps. Lovely job.

Wow that is amazing - and I imagine it's a lot of fun to sit and remember all the other quilts that produced the scraps!

I've been working on a lot of 1.5" strips for another project right now. I have tons of ends that would make some really beautiful crazy rails. Thanks for the inspiration. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with in 2017. Happy new year!

You've taught me to love small scraps. I've made a Vortex quilt out of Christmas scraps. It was so much fun I could barely get my other stuff dobe!

Love the size of these little scrappy rail blocks! It is so cherry and dainty at the same time.

It would make a great scrappy quilt but I think yours is from a FQ pack which is lovely.
