    i will be so glad when this is sewn together. this had to be the worst yet. no more background fabric so i guess the borders are going to be large

    I like it too. Gives me an idea of something to do with scraps donated to our church for Lutheran World Relief quilts.

    It is fantastic! Love the scrappiness of it all!

    When I do something scrappy, I also vary the background fabrics so it is really scrappy... just a thought for the next time!

    Also if you want to make it bigger, how about sashing? A two inch sash between each block REALLY adds up quickly to give you the extra size you want!

    If you look closely you can see it is a four patch. Two half square triangle blocks and two plain blocks. Should be pretty simple to figure out from there!

    one day i may be bold enough to attempt some background confusion--i prefer subtlety ---what i DID do to add a little charm was to turn the bkgrd fabric on the vertical AND horizontal..[big traditional no no] it may raise a few eyebrows but it looks more playful!

    Also if you want to make it bigger, how about sashing? A two inch sash between each block REALLY adds up quickly to give you the extra size you want!
    fresh out of purple & a six inch border will do the same! again i disagree, sashing is a separator to me, if you want the blocks to stand out, fine, i'm going 4 the close & crowded look--i do appreciate your opinion! & thanks for your suggestions!
