Scrap Squad Quilt #3

Today is the big reveal of my scrap squad quilt over at the Quiltmaker blog, where you can read all the details about the creative process.
The biggest surprise for me when  making this quilt was how much I disliked it when I was sewing the rows together, and then how much I liked it when it was done! My feelings went from one extreme to the other, and that has never  happened to me before when making a quilt.
The thing about this quilt is that the farther away from it you are, the better it looks. It's true. 
And that's weird, right?
Anyway, it used up almost all of my Kansas Troubles fabric scraps and emptied an entire tote bin.
You know what that means?
I'm going fabric shopping!
I also want to announce the winner of the Cozy Afternoon giveaway from Jacquelynne. There were 89 comments on that post, and the random number generator picked #39, which is Margaret! Congrats to you Margaret, and check your email because the patterns will be emailed directly to you.
Have a great weekend everyone!

  7. I can see how this one would not look as great close up. That distance shot though -- wow! The color placement with the reds and the lights really makes the design pop. Great work powering through. Maybe your dislike of the quilt was more about the deadline than about the fabric?

  9. I saw you over on the squad report and KT fabric can look a 'muddle' as you go, but oh so pretty once it all is together. This is just awesome!

  10. You did a nice article on the Quiltmaker blog. I've had quilts that I've like the block, but, didn't like it when they were all put together. I don't EQ, I use graph paper to design my quilts, and color pencils to check the colors. Not the best, but, it works pretty well.
