    another scrappy- out of my stash top done

    I love this one.
    didn't get great pictures though so i'm showing kind of a 'whole quilt' which does not show the 'piano keys' borders- so had to take another one with those---then a close up of some of the fabrics i used.
    this is another one completely out of stash/scraps.
    still have to quilt it of course- it is for a friend who requested it for her hubby's new man-cave- they didn't want sports---they wanted---woodsy just my 'cup of tea!'

    I really LOVE that quilt! How did you do the oval at the top and bottom?

    WOW is right. Love the design work in this. And I love your tree panels near the bottom. Beautiful fabrics.

    thanks everyone! i love how it came together too! the (ovals) at the top & bottom are blocks from a panal---I believe a Holly Taylor panal from a number of years ago- i just cut the circle blocks out (in a square) outside the 1/4" design frame on the fabric and used the blocks- i think they are 6" squares.
    most of those (picture fabrics) were 'swiss cheese' pieces from a couple panals i had used parts of years ago- finally decided to (get creative) it's so fun when a plan comes together

    What a beautiful scrappy quilt. A gorgeous gift. You did a great job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    You did a fantastic job and the idea of this for a man-cave--it is PERFECT. And really pretty (but we can call it handsome since it is for a man)!! Congratulations--and I agree with those who say it doesn't look scrappy in a traditional sense. You did a great job of coordination.

    Would you think I was a copycat if I seconded all these raves? This is a spectacular quilt! My DH would give his eye teeth for this beauty!
