    so here is my answer to her and anyone else who would like them.

The light is on the right and the medium on the left. To help everyone to see this process here are some pictures to clarify how this works.

    I LOVE this quilt. It could be made from a collection or from scraps. I do like the white but orange is a cool background too. This doesn't look all that easy - but fun and gorgeous.

Look at this as an encouragement to use your stash that much quicker....and still buy more! Happy Thanksgiving!
