I finished my top this morning! It's rather small and I'm still considering how I might make it bigger, but I'm definitely scrapped out.
Here's my process . . . Using Jennifer's tutorial, I started out with gray because I did have scraps of those.
Then a fun idea occurred. I dug out every remotely orange piece and dug through my stash for a few supplemental pieces. One ended up being a "use every last piece I have and make a kind of log cabin" block . . . still fun.
Here's what it looked like at that point. This would have been fun, but would have required a fabric purchase to add more orange.
So I pulled purple and green scraps and cut strips from my stash.
Now I have a rather small, but finished quilt top. Linking it up to Crazy Mom Quilts' Finish It Up Friday.
On a side note, my son is almost as tall as my sister. Ok, she is the shortest one in the family, but still . . . how did that happen?
