Scrappy Quilt

I have a HUGE laundry basket full of scrap fabric sitting under my sewing table. Each time I look at it, I feel so ashamed!! Those are good fabric in there. So I decided today, I will try and make a quilt or quilts if I can!! So I set about the task and got the help of my friend, Haminah, who was so kind to help me iron out the scraps. I used the scrap master ruler to cut out the triangles. This is the first time I am using this ruler.. bought it some time back and I think I have made a very good investment!! It is so convenient especially when the fabric is an odd shaped scrap!! I am contemplating if I should sort out the color tone of the fabric or leave it as scrappy as it can get!! Mind you, I've got lots of contrasting colors! So for the next few days, my task if to cut out as many triangles and square as I can out of the betweeen cutting and's practising quilting on my Juki!!! I need to know if there are any fast and hard rules in feather quilting....any comments or help would be greatly appreciated!!! :-)

Heard a speaker one time who taught scrappy quilts -- she reminded us that each of those scraps cost $9.00/yard like the full yardages.
