    This pattern was in Feb quick quilts{luv that mag}
    It was in funky Xmas fabric. I needed to use up more scraps so this is what I did so far.
    I didn`t plan at all as you can see I have darks with darks. I just pulled fabric as I went.Hope the qpolice don`t get me!Lol

    I really like it.
    that's what scrap quilts are for...no planning allowed when I make one. Darks end up with darks, or lights end up with lights, it's all good!

    You have made a great start; I can't wait to see the finished product!

    And today is your lucky day. I happen to have influence with the QP and was able to pull some strings and send them off on another errand. You're safe for today!
