December UFO completions

Both of the above quilts were given to my brother after his house fire.
Quilt 1: How it started: This was to be used in our family room for the Grands to use.
How it became a UFO: After getting the blocks sewn I was unsure about what to use for vertical strips. It seemed to be a very dark quilt. I had the outer borders already cut. So it sat. I took it out about 18 months ago and still didn't know what to do.
How I finished it: After the fire I wanted a quick project for my brother so I bit the bullet, made a decision pulling from stash the light shirting and called it done!

Quilt 2: How it started and became a UFO: When my sister moved into a nursing home, my other sister sent a couple of her quilt tops for me to finish and donate as my older sister's intentions. After we lost the older sister last summer this remaining top was still a UFO.
How I finished it: Again seeing my brother's need, I added the brown and gold borders to make this scrappy larger. Now it's a perfect sofa throw especially after added from stash a brown lodge themed flannel as backing. I got these up to him before Christmas

Ok....those are both stunning quilts. You do such beautiful scrappies... I’m doing a leader/ended of HST’s just for the heck of it but now you have inspired me....as you often do.

Again, thanks all. Teen...contrast is the word when working with scrap pieces as well as keeping color intensities similar or close to each other. In other words don't use a a neon pink with an olive green...now maybe a bubblegum pink with the olive green may work. Right now am making 9P's for a future big little quilt. 9P are dark corners and center using 1 1/2" pieces (all from scrap strips). Just need some mindless sewing and these fit the bill.

Ok- love quilt 1. I think you did exactly the right thing with light sashing against those dark striped pieces. Balance. Masculine too
