    controlled scrappy

    Usually I like the totally scrappy look, but I was given a box of 3" squares by a lady who had a stroke and was unable to quilt anymore. Since in some cases ther were a couple hundred of some of the pattern, I made a 12-patch and it will be donated to the charity I sew for. Thanks for looking.

    P.S. Just noticed I made the bottom border wrong, the light colors were supposed to fall on opposite the lights on the quilt top. Need to change that or it will drive me nuts. LOL that's the OCD kicking in.

    pretty! I never would have noticed the border unless you pointed it out. If anything, I would have thought that you were just contrasting it with the top border....

    That was a nice way to use up the 3" sqaures given to you and the colors went together nicely. I, too, love what you did with the border. Great job!

    that went together very well. I understand OCD, but IMHO, having the variation on the borders is good.
