Here are mine ready to go, just finished sewing the strips late last night and finished cutting them into strips a bit ago. I used a layer cake and went with the opposite on the color wheel. Since Iím not using face mask prints, I make the purples a little (but not too much) scrappy. Ready for the next steps! Hugs and happy new year all!

Today's the day! I'm so excited!

Everyone's fabric look outstanding!

I just got my Steps 1 & 2 finished last night so hopefully it'll take me a few steps to fall behind

Sadly, hit my first disappointment of the day as it appears I cut my directional fabrics incorrectly. Ah well, it's only 4 or 5 out of 15 or so fabrics I'm using for my Fabric C, so it definitely could have been worse!

I think several folks did that. I only have 2 directionals so probably will leave them. Or not.

Such a quick and fun quilt! I was just collecting clues but I might actually be able to put together a crib-sized quilt today! I hope everyone is piecing together theirs and will have a show and tell later this evening! Happy New Year!

The main reveal is out! (I think there's 1 more clue left of how it looks with the borders)

Gotta say, not necessarily my favorite pattern ever. But I was kinda expecting that given the fact I'm not huge on scrappy quilts.

However, I think I'm going to try changing the orientation (so it'll be a final size of 108x92 instead of 92x108) but keep the diagonal running the same way, so that my directional fabric actually works lol

I'm also going to see if a gradient look can be pulled off with the fabric I got, to minimize the scrappiness. Wish me luck

Vadalia - I hope you can work the layout to keep your directional blocks. Yeah, it really is a busy scrappy quilt. I wish I had known earlier that there was an option for a constant fabric C as I might have gone with that. I have all the blocks made but not assembled. I'm considering making three more blocks and arrange them in a 3 x 3 pattern turned on their side in order to get two charity lap quilts from it. It doesn't seem as busy when smaller.

It is crazy how different this pattern looks depending on the colors used! I think a controlled scrappy is how I will try my crib quilt.
