    construction of my scrappy quilt

    I had a few questions about the quilt and if I had a pattern, I did not have a pattern, just laying out the 2.5 inch scrap squares until I found a design I liked, sewing groups of 5 to 6 squares together and then laying them down, sewing sections together as I went along watching ahead that I had enough of that particular fabric to finish the diamonds. I accumilated all the fabrics after doing several batic quilts. when I am doing a project I go on a cut the scraps into either 10" 5" or 2.5" squares and put them in drawers for that particular size.. separating batiks from prints. when I became overrun with the batik 2.5" peices, I decided it was time to do somethine with them, I did use the same brown small print fabric through out the quilt to separate the diamonds. here are a few pics of the progress of the quilt.

    It truly is beautiful! Are you going to enter it in the River Heritage Quilt Show in Cape Girardeau in September? I think you should!

    Love your quilt! It really came out nice. The wrought iron design shows up so nicely in the dark border too . Is it a panto that you used ?

    Very nice. And, you have a good idea about cutting up your left over fabric right then. I get swamped in scraps! I think your quilt is a real beauty!

    That is gorgeous! It must have taken some planning to get it to come out so well. Good job.

    Beautiful quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Hi Donna, Still think this is one of the most beautiful quilts that I have seen. Thanks for your PM's. Still having a hard time wrapping my head around how you did it. I will continue to study until it comes to me. BrendaK
