Warm and Cool

I finished my warm and cool string quilt top late yesterday afternoon, and finally got it pressed for a good photo today (although the relentless breeze in the air still created some ripples).  It turned out shockingly busy and loud; and I totally love it!


This quilt was an amazing scrap buster and it was lots of fun, easy sewing.  When I started working on the warm blocks though, I realized that since my summer scrap purge, I had actually not accumulated any pink scraps, so I had to cut into some of my stash, and of course, I cut way too much.  So, I should say that this quilt was a great scrap buster for all of my colors except pink.

I pieced the backing this afternoon, and tomorrow I am going to work like mad to get it finished in time for my guild meeting on Sunday afternoon.  I'm thinking that if I shirk enough housework that shouldn't be a problem, ha!

  5. The fabrics are busy, but the separation of color makes it work. Bold, bright and fun!

  6. This is so pretty. I like the bright colors. I have so many darker fabrics I'm trying to use up so I can buy brights! The patterns looks fairly simple, I'll have to try this. Gretchen villacrestfarm@gmail.com
