    Controlled scrappy WIP

    I still just can't get my head around really, truely, scrappy so this is my version of scrappy . I really don't like brown and I have idea how I ended up with so may brown scraps, but I saw this on http://quiltville.blogspot.com.au/20...e-blossom.html and someone had posted a picture of their version done in browns and creams and thought that it looked quite nice (even though it is BROWN LOL)
    So far I have done 20 blocks but I think I will make another 10 and have it 5 blocks x 6 blocks. Not sure if I will do sashing or just put them together as is.
    It felt so good just to have some time to sit down and sew, I haven't had much time lately and just doing these felt wonderful

    Very nice. I would leave out the sashing. I like the way the diamonds form where the blocks meet.

    I would leave out sashing. It would ruin the secondary pattern.

    I like your blocks just the way you have them layed out. That is going to make a great quilt. I too am true scrappy challenged.

    Very pretty. I can't do scrappy either. I've been planning on making the same quilt using my blue scraps. I have also decided not to do sashing. I like it better without. Very nicely done

    nicely done... i wouldn't add the sashing as the blocks make the secondary pattern without it.

    No sashing. It is beautiful. I'm not a brown fan either. Glad to see I'm not the only one up in the middle of the night. So nice to have quiet an time to sew.

    Beautiful! Love how the design creates movement. I would keep the blocks as they are without sashing! This is going to be gorgeous when done!

    I'm in the leave out the sashing group too. Can't say that the idea of doing a brown quilt would inspire me much but I love yours so I would be wrong! It's beautiful.

    Very nice. I agree with everyone else, leave the sashing out.

    Scrappy's are my hands-down favorite. It's looking great, and at the risk of being redundant, definitely no sashing.

    Love it. I agree with the 'no sashing' comments, looks great as it is. I also am a big fan of the controlled scrappy look, either by limiting the colors, or having a repeating element in a neutral color.

    I think that is a very nice looking quilt. I like browns. I think this would be a good quilt for a man. So many men like the more subdued look.
