    Honestly, I'd thank her for being candid because it's sad when you've spent tons of work on a gift quilt that is not to the recipient's tastes. Awkward for them and disheartening for the artist (yes, we are, all folk artists!). Better to find out ahead of time.
    Your work is too nice to not be appreciated by the right person. Nice job on all of them you posted. Keep it up and keep posting for all of us to enjoy. :o)

    You are right. It is better for her to have what she likes. And for me to spend my time and energy for someone who appreciates my particular tastes....Maybe like one for me?

    This is my scrappy I-spy rail fence that was made with fabric from the scrap bin.

    Well I have had so much inspiration from this thread, I finally got to grips with going totally scrappy!

    I have been playing with all the scraps I cut up a few weeks ago. These are 3.5" unfinished 4 patches and HST, just roughly lay out on our rug LOL

    So what do you think?

    Thanks Lois, it was difficult for me to 'go with the flow' and not 'match up every square of fabric...All of my quilts are basically scrappy but usually follow a controlled colour scheme. I am just about to lay these out in Jacob's Ladder Pattern to see if I prefer that LOL...this is such fun!!

    :-D :-D :-D

    So which layout do you prefer??

    so amazing! some day I might have enough scraps to start to make a crazy quilt. I love the idea of using what we have and make something nice instead of always wanting what we do not have

    Izy, I like both ways really... but if I have to really choose I would go for #1

    Just gorgeous black, red and white quilt. I was never drawn to these colors in clothing or decorating until I saw quilts but I think yours is the most striking I have ever seen in these colors.

    I actually like the second one as that's how I've been told a Jacob's Ladder should go. And your quilt has given me the kick to get moving on mine as I just started it but felt I need to finish another first. I've been collecting and cutting pieces and sewn only a few pieces together. It looks amazing though both ways!

    Question: either way, it's helpful to the design if you have one fairly light side and one dark or print side, correct? as well as having a lighter and a dark fabric for the 4-patches.

    It's fun to see your 'auditions'! Both layouts are attractive; I like them both. I'll be watching this space!
    I love scrappies but have trouble making myself not be selective... I really admire those who can just let it happen.

    Just wondering if anyone has the know how and time to set up a specific area (other than this ...ie like what has been done for the month swaps) so we can view just the scrappy quilts? There are so many great ones...but feel that I'm missing them! Maybe we can continually add to them..... this has been great!

    What is the pattern for your next to last quilt? Is it a project that used stars and the other part?
    Should know pattern, but can't think of name.
