    This is a very controlled scrappy. I first sorted for the color blocks, which was pretty easy and then the gray progression to the light center was quite a challenge for me! Gray can go toward green, blue, purple, etc. and getting a good color progression took looks of fabric auditioning and looking at them through my binoculars. Yes, I look at blocks and colors that are on my design floor through the wrong end of my binoculars to get some distance from the work and get a better overview. As long as no one looks in the window and sees me staring at the floor through the wrong end of my binoculars, all is well!

    LOL! And when someone finally does see you doing that we'll hope your cell is padded with all these wonderful quilts. This is another stunner.

    Sounds fine to me - I'll take them off the walls, take out the seams and start all over again and make something new :) Wait, that's kind of what I'm doing with scrap quilting already.....hummmmm.....and you say they would fix my meals for me....hummmmm

    Downside is I don't think you'll be allowed any sharp objects. :)

    Glad you said that, I was just planning how I could get to that padded cell. See, you're thinking ahead :)

    You have a special eye for color combinations - truly a fabric artist.
