The follow on from the post about my scrap quilts. I selected the brownish colour scheme to work on
But felt it needed some zing
Using the floral in the center I added colours to tone or add the zing in felt it needed
Strips and squares odd blocks all different sizes from my scraps
Half way there
I add the strips around the outside which ever way I feel looks best keeping them balanced
They are trimmed when reaching a good size. I like to use 25 blocks up to 12 inches in size.
That gives you 5 rows of 4 blocks. A good lap size, in the photo below I used 5 by 5 and the blocks would have been around 10 inches
Out of that bag of scraps I made two lap quits and one backing.
They are currently waiting to be quilted...
