    Controlled scrappy WIP

    I still just can't get my head around really, truely, scrappy so this is my version of scrappy . I really don't like brown and I have idea how I ended up with so may brown scraps, but I saw this on http://quiltville.blogspot.com.au/20...e-blossom.html and someone had posted a picture of their version done in browns and creams and thought that it looked quite nice (even though it is BROWN LOL)
    So far I have done 20 blocks but I think I will make another 10 and have it 5 blocks x 6 blocks. Not sure if I will do sashing or just put them together as is.
    It felt so good just to have some time to sit down and sew, I haven't had much time lately and just doing these felt wonderful

    The biggest risk is the one not taken

    I like how it is. IMHO no sashing. Nice points.

    Very nice. I would leave out the sashing. I like the way the diamonds form where the blocks meet.

    Beautiful. I think I would leave out the sashing too....The secondary pattern is so pretty.

    I would leave out sashing. It would ruin the secondary pattern.

    I like your blocks just the way you have them layed out. That is going to make a great quilt. I too am true scrappy challenged.

    You're too funny with your 'brown and all!' I like it. Nice job!
    Go forth and sew!

    Very pretty. I can't do scrappy either. I've been planning on making the same quilt using my blue scraps. I have also decided not to do sashing. I like it better without. Very nicely done
