    Very nice, and I see it has received your cat's approval, that's so important. I've been making quilts for family reunions for several years - with my familiy members sending fabric in whatever I choose, say-red/white/blue, all blue, green, etc., etc. I do like to have one constant color in the quilt to make it have some unity. I had asked for blue fabric one year and received all medium to bright blues. I chose a dresden plate with one darker blue at the 4 corners to unify the blocks, with one fabric for the center, and the same blue for the sashing. It was one of the most gorgeous quilts I have ever made. My family loves to win the quilts, I leave something of myself behind, and most of all I get challenged to use fabrics I may not have chosen - try making a quilt with red, black, yellow, blue, teal, orange (yes orange), navy blue and purple. I made a beautiful album block quilt and basket quilt from those colors and I'm challenged to make a quilt using colors and fabrics I would not have chosen for a quilt. This year's quilt is going to be a black and white quilt, and I'm leaning towards a log cabin. Will post when I get it done before I send it to my oldest niece who said she would quilt it on her new long arm, so I just have to make the top - my favorite part.

    This is beautiful.!! Your color selection is so perfect. I find it so hard to call it scrappy. I have hated scrappy forever, but your description so explains my sentiments perfectly. It has to have that continuity and planning, even though scraps are used. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and putting it into prefect words, as well as a lovely quilt.

    So how does one PLAN a beautiful scrappy quilt like this? There must be a plan of some sort and how do you know you'll have enough fabric to finish it. My scrappy quilts are just that-scrappy! I cut all my pieces, put them in a paper bag, give em a good shake and what ever I pull out is what I sew next. somebody! splain it to me ????

    I agree with you about taming the scrappy with something like your star points. It's a lovely quilt!
