    Has anyone made the X's and O's quilt with scarp fabric?

    I seen the tutorial on the Missouri star quilt company and the lady, Jenny used charm packs so all the fabric went together well.

    When I have any fabric left over from a project, I cut it into 6 inch squares, so I have lots of them and would like to use them up.

    Do you think it would look good using scrap 6 inch sq

    Thanks

    i love scrappy. when you make a pattern with them, and the that pattern needs to show well, to define the X and O, you have to be careful of the value of the scraps. i have a red glass that i look through which shows the value well.

    Hi there Sadismae... yes that is the same site that I found the video on and it looked so easy thought that it would be a quilt that I could use all my 6 inch scrapy squares up..
    Thanks

    QuiltnNan..you said you use a red glass to look at your fabric to see the value of the fabric.. HUMM not sure what I would be looking for...could you explain what to look for and would a clear glass do or does it have to be a red one? thanks so much for all the help....

    If you have a camera that has an eye viewer, it really makes it easier to decide values. For some reason. the view screen doesn't do it for me.

    Also looking thru the wrong side of binoculars works well.

    I remember that we made a group project on the QB a while back and a lot of us just picked fabric from our stash. The common denominator was the background fabric (white). ALl those colors came together nicely, so a scrappy version with a unified background would look great IMHO.

    I was looking up "Rhonda" this morning because a "Rhonda" has joined another group I'm in -- I found a thread Rhondas BOM -- and it is a perfect X and O design -- I think it was posted in July '10
    Mim

    It was not the same Rhonda
