I love it. I also love working with 2.5" strips.
twistedandloose thank you! 2.5" strips are so versatile aren't they? I swapped them for years in online groups before the jelly rolls came out so I have plenty to play with.
While it's true you have a lot going on here, I wouldn't say its unsuccessful. I think you can pull this all together, as you have done with some of your others, with some border awesomeness...but regardless- I like it a lot:)- you make scrappy look so easy!
OH...just noticed you completed it- dumb me- well there you are...looks great even without a border patrol;)))...save that awesomeness for another UFO- you DO have a few more left...right;))))?
Mymble Thanks... I did grow to like this one more while quilting it as often seems to happen. Funny how that works - the closer to the Finish Line the prettier they look! Oh yes, I still have more. ;-D
You're right- the quilting can be the thing that does it- never thought of it that way...but now that you mention it there have been some things that seemed just...ok and then after the quilting I liked them so much more:)...will have to remember that!
Oh I like this.
Oh this is beautiful! I love scrappy quilts. The more fabrics/prints/colors, the better. Not too much going on at all. Although I think you are right, the pattern would look wonderful done in "low volume" style as well.
