    Anyone remember a blog or newsletter post about using solids....?

    Anyone remember a blog or newsletter post about using solids in the last couple months? After showing the main post, they added another quilt photo that used solids and it started with large squares in the upper left and gradually reduced the size of the squares across the face of the quilt till they ended up with very small ones in the bottom right.
    This was all made of solids.
    I thought I had saved the site and info but now I cannot find it. The quilt inspired my newest quilt and I wanted to give credit to the original poster and the one who made the quilt. Mine is not quite the same, but I was definitely inspired by that post.
    Mine is a controlled scrappy with a semi-Africa theme. Smiles...

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    If you can post a picture of the original from the blog, we can trace it back to the source. Of course, that assumes you saved the photo, just not the attribution.
    The Earth without art is just "Eh".

    Oh ranger, thank you so much, that is exactly it!!!!
    Here is a peek at what I'm doing with it: the lady likes Africa, hunting and bright colors. That's all I had to go on, so here is my progress so far:Name:  brandi's top.jpg

Size:  169.9 KB And these are my 16 Patches for the bottom right up close. I'm a little concerned that in this case the scrappy is a little too busy and whether I should have used some solids, especially in the 4 Patches. It's not too late to change that.
    What do you all think?

    Linda, I never ceased to be amazed at your creativity. I do not think solids, even little pieces, would be good. I think the entire quilt is great with all the 'busy-ness'. What a wonderful creation and I bet your 'lady' will love it. Perhaps a solid for first border???
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    This is awesome! I wouldn't change a thing, either. I think it's just right. Please post a photo when it's finished!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)
