There is also a lot of a blue fabric with flowers that I don't like but seemed to match everything. So, I got rid of a lot of weird fabrics with this quilt. The crazy thing is that I still like it.
    I do like the crazy quilt too and there are some extremely unique fabrics used in the quilt. Does the blue fabric with flowers have cabbage roses on it? If so, I have quite a bit of that fabric still that I haven't figured out how to use up in quilts. But you've given me some ideas. Truly do like your quilt.

    Yes, there are a few small roses on the blue fabric, I think they are the cabbage type. There are other flowers too though. The scale of the flowers is small enough that the fabric always reads blue. It isn't something that I probably would have bought but it sure did match a lot of different fabrics. Good luck with your left over yardage. Fabric challenges can sure make piecing fun. I'm glad you like how my top turned out. Thank you.

    Some of the cabbage rose yardage isn't leftovers - some of it didn't see the light of day until I organized my fabric and realized how much of that fabric I still have. I can always use it for practice pieces when trying out new quilt squares/patterns or making potholders. Fabric bowls also come to mind.

    Future Quilter, I really like your mom's quilt. It's so different!

    Ellageo, what a beauty! I'm partial to colors and black sashing. Really makes it pop!
