    Your finished quilt is absolutely awesome. And now we know "the rest of the story" so to speak. It is now permanent on my bucket list and I may move it to number 1 status. thanks.

    Hi Rosey, Just found this thread and must say "I love it!". I wish I was retired. I wish I was retired I wish I was retired
    There is so much to do.

    Oh Rosey and Übe I never wanted to retire but after being bullied and becoming very ill I left early I have never had so much fun and I think I am becoming a rebellious teenager which I missed earlier due to exams. He ho. .

    What a story ! Scraps a ruler and use your brain and out comes a beautiful quilt. I enjoyed all the reading and variations of block placement also. Thank you for the guide for us to follow. Now my undesirable fabric can have a new home in a beautiful quilt top. hugs

    There are 80 bocks so far on the board. I have burned through the undesirable lights lol and am ripping from other sources and still have some dark left. I think I need to make at least 200 blocks to have a fair size quilt.
    I love them both but I think the second one I like a little better. Thanks for the instructions and the pictures. I am now excited to tackle my scrap box and make this quilt.

    This quilt reminds me of an apartment building in the city with each apartment having different curtains hanging in the windows. I like the light medium darks in this pattern. I found some on pinterest and might have to consider making me one of these. This is a grate scrap user.

    This is going to be beautiful. I agree the strips should follow the angle of the cut, not go across it and it is smart of you to decide putting darker fabrics at the ends to give it a 3D effect. Would love to see this as it progresses.
    Thanks for sharing the photos and your wisdom!

    looks great so far!
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
