team scrappy

 











Making more blocks today.
This one is a real favourite project at the moment with all it's scrappy goodness.
I'm using a mix of light and dark fabrics, 
with a few mediums thrown in to give more of a blended, softer look.
I spent a bit of time faffing about getting a balance of colours, making sure all the greys are spread out. 
It all looks great when I stand back a bit, but it's hard to capture that in a photo!

So yes, I'm definitely on 'team scrappy', are you too?

  9. Scrappy always gives great results. Though if I was making this, I'd have to be cutting into stashed fabric to get those "large" pieces. Quite literally, my scraps are small. Still, I've been digging into mine too, these past couple days. I see another Amanda Jean Nyberg "Scrap Vortex" quilt in my future. Keep having fun!

  11. It's harder to make a really good scrappy quilt than people think, but you have the knack. This is looking great.

  12. Linda, this scrappy quilt is so fabulous. You are tempting me to abandon the deadline projects I'm working on and dive into my scrap bins with reckless abandon! :-)
