    This is great! I really like it, and especially since scrap quilts are my favorite - they are so homey. Now my question is about how you chose your colors. Did you seperate into lights and darks? Or what? The layout seems perfect.

    I pretty much went by the pattern for colors. I was really surprised when I saw purples and orange /golds in the fabrics used in the original. I found out that it added character . I was just learning how to quilt when I started this. I watched Simply Quilts on Tv and learned a lot about what I was doing with color. I guess what I found with this quilt is the more you have of a color it stands out and reads that color , but you add others to make it pop, and it gives it character .
    I finished this quilt back in 2006 but added to it recently for my king size bed . When I added the fabrics many were different, but as you see it looks the same because the color stayed uniform to the rest of the quilt . yes I did seperate you need to to get the definition , the pattern tells you how to achive this .

    hope that helps answer your question .
    Thank You for all the nice compliments !! : )

    awesome. you finished in 06, but when did you start? I'm always curious what family members say about quilts, but I know we will probably get more validation here bc people here think QUILT. We are an outstanding breed and some around us don't see it, lol. would love to make that valance but then i'd have to buy new curtain rods etc. on a tight budget now. oh well, have your pics to admire. great work.

    I just love your valance that you made for you bedroom window. It is so beautiful. I also love your quilt too. The colors are so pretty & your work is impeccable. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

    quiltincrazy , I think it took me about 3mo to complete the piecing in that quilt. I hand quilted it , so I'd guess it took me at least 6-8months altogether . Course I had other projects going too.

    mary that is dedication. i can't wait to do a quilt with a pattern and see if my stuff is more accurate than my current project. it was my first and i designed it. bit off a bit, but that's ok. i'd do anything for my grandkids. The one i am making current princess quilt for just gushes when i make her something. makes my week, my month, my life, lol!
