This is really nice and the blue pulls it all together- what I find so interesting with this is that if you showed me the individual squares I wouldn't see them working together, and yet, once it's all assembled and with the binding it really works- and beautifully so- great job!
Mymble This is very true... I didn't really like the looks of this one until the borders went on! I've got a multi colored thin stripe on white picked out for the binding which I think will finish it off nicely.
I'm totally with Mymble here - I think you've got enough blue sprinkled throughout the quilt that the blue border ties it all together. Sounds like fun fabric for the binding
This is gorgeous. What a great scrap quilt!
What a great quilt. How come when I see your scrappy quilts I just love them but when I try to make one I cannot do it?!
Stamdl when I try to do my one it gives me vertigo and I then go back to something more coordinated. But I look at this one (and others) and simply love it.
HawkFan I try to mix up the colors in the blocks and spread out the attention getters like yellow, orange and red when laying out the blocks but once you've made a few you might be surprised at how well they usually work out.
One of my favorite patterns. You did this oldie justice and updated it beautifully. It just sparkles!
