Default Scrappy Mexican Dance - anyone?

Am considering making this quilt for my GGD and was wondering if anyone has made a scrappy one. If so can you post a photo please. I have 5 aqua fabrics 2 pale greys & white, and tossing up whether to make the MSD or a Turning 20 type.
Must be done by the 16th Dec so will have to get busy. Thanx in advance

Yes, Feline, that's the one. I'm trying to avoid using just the plain aqua fabrics as I think they will look rather bland.

Wow. That is impressive. Would take me a year to finish it if I stuck with it. Lol. Can’t wait to see a picture.

The pattern could be made with scraps as long as they were in the same colour family. If you did varied colours you might lose the pattern in my opinion.

I really like this pattern and made two of the smaller versions. It was fun to make. I don't know why it couldn't be made to be scrappy. I do think you would need to have it controlled scrappy as you move through several colors. How about a rainbow effect?

Beautiful quilt but definitely not something that I personally would be trying to make in a hurry. Hopefully you will accomplish the task at hand!

Beautiful quilt, post a picture when you get it finished. I would love to see it done as a scrappy!
