    Yes it IS a random scrappy in the sense that I didn't colour coordinate, but I put emphasis on contrast only, which enhances the secondary patterns once all the blocks are put together! I just cut lots of 2" squares for the four patches and heaps of 4" squares for the HST's, when I had quite a few made up and was bored of that I then just selected from the pile layout the block making sure there was a 'bright' HST in the corners and that the 'light' stripe was well defined, not difficult at all, oh and tried to make sure I didn't have two of the same fabrics together, that's about it!

    Thanks again for all your wonderful comments, I am so touched!

    Here's a close up of a couple of blocks so you can see the contrast and layout

    This is so pretty, right now i'm cutting all my material in to triangles and squares. and have found so many scrappy quilt ideas from this site. Did you have a pattern for this or made your own?

    Beautiful. I love this quilt!
    Never try to teach a pig to sing. It wastes your time, and annoys the pig.

    Thank you Alwaysdancing, sorry no pattern as such, but if you look on pg 23 I have given some instructions on how to complete the blocks! Have fun and let me see if you decide to make one too!
