I thought I would share my progress on the lime and black scrap quilt. So many people commented on wanting to see what I was going to do with all my 2 1/2" squares.....I'm guess many of us are in the same boat - floating in a sea of scraps!
As I said in my first post of this project, I have been randomly chain piecing these little squares together. When I sorted out my scraps, I really kept to those with only lime, black, gray and white.
Okay, I did put in a very small amount of turquoise to add some pop. Scrap quilts don't have to be boring!
I have now pieced these bits into a 16 patch. My only placement rules were to never place the same two fabrics together and to put a single blue piece randomly in every block.
Here is where we are at now. I have 30 blocks finished and up on my design wall.
For the next step, I have pulled some solids from my stash.
I have a few fun ideas on how to incorporate these and still keep it scrappy and random. I hope to get some time soon to firm up a plan and finish up the top.
Hope you stay tuned to see how it turns out!
I also played with some scraps on the other end of the color wheel and made this little quilt for a class I will be teaching soon. I am sure I will be making a larger one in the future. It went together really quickly - another perfect project for working up those scraps!
