Early in 2014, Judy L at Patchwork Times issued a Scrappy Challenge. I started doing her January Challenge and by the time of her link up I had made 30 blocks. If you find her January link up, you can see mine there. I put a red in the center of each block, but after that, I gave no thought to anything except 1) neutral background 2) light on the rectangles around the center 3) mediums on the big triangles, and 4) darks on the smaller triangles.
So with 64 “Big T” blocks, I took my selection of blacks and added them as sashing. The red cornerstones in the sashing is a constant fabric. I PURCHASED the border, which is black with multi-color polka dots. The backing is also scrappy–I used yardage, but there are 4 fabrics in it–in long stripes. Other than the border, I purchased NOTHING for this quilt. Which is 98 x 98. I quilted it myself using the a panto called “Hearts a flutter” and I love the way it looks. Here it is on my queen size bed. There is a full row of blocks hanging off either side.
Did you do anything scrappy this year?
