    Controlled scrappy

    Just finished this controlled scrappy quilt. I purchase fat quarter bundles to make quilts, but trying to cut fabrics to bring myself to make an uncontrolled scrappy like Bonnie Hunters quilts. Anyone else find it difficult to let go and sew totally scrappy?

    That is a really cute pattern and quilt. At first it was hard for me to do scrappy but the more you do, the easier it is.

    Very pretty. Good job with the colors! I really don't do scrappy. I like matchy.

    Gorgeous quilt! Even though I haven't made a lot of quilts, I am in the process of a scrappy jacob's ladder. The only part controlled about it is the dark and light triangles to make the pattern. Maybe this is a result of my mom making mostly scrappy quilts.
    It's not a mistake, it's an unconscious decision to change the pattern.

    I like "Matchy" too. Your quilt is beautiful.
    I am too POSITIVE to be doubtful, too OPTIMISTIC to be fearful and way to DETERMINED to be defeated.

    This turned out beautifully. I like it a lot. That turquoise really makes the whole thing pop.

    Great quilt! I think the only way I could go totally scrappy would be if someone invented glasses that convert all the scraps to black and white. That way I could piece by value instead of colour.

    I love scrappy but I tend to love other people's scrappy more than my own!

    So what's wrong with a controlled scrappy?? It is beautiful and the pattern would have disappeared if you had made it totally scrappy. I think you did a great job!
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.
