There has been more good quilting weather here this week. Snow, snow and more snow. Today it’s been sunny and bright just like the past few days. My daughter and I went for a long drive the other day, seeing lots of plowed fields and trees covered with snow, like these.
Last week I showed you some pictures of my boxes filled with scraps. The box of muted colors was my choice to work on this week.
I continued piecing pairs, then making bigger squares and rectangles until I could set them together into what was a wall hanging size. I didn’t worry about color placement except in a few places where I wanted to balance out the reds or the blues.
it wasn’t until I saw this photo that I noticed the brighter blue flowered scrap which ended up exactly right in the center. Serendipity! The piece about 16 x 24 inches.
last week I received a batch of fabrics from Connecting Threads. For some reason I happened to include a fat quarter of a brown print. This turned out to be exactly the right choice for a border. Black, white or gray would not have blended well at all.
It didn’t take long to add the border. This is as far as I’m going to go for now. I will hang it up on my wall to enjoy it for a while before deciding whether to quilt it.
There is plenty of yellow here for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
