|Here the wings go from dark to light, sort of ROYGBIV but not really|
|I flipped some of the darks to the opposite ends to balance it|
|Totally random, winging it, ha|
I could not believe how not one of the low volume strips touches an identical strip in all 3 layouts. I did not plan to have so many different final 8.5 and 9.5" strips. That's why it's good to have LOTS of scraps, right?!
As suggested by Judy, I edited a photo to tonal to see the values.
I'm thinking that this is going to be my August goal for ALYoF at Sew Bittersweet Designs. I had no idea I was going to make this quilt, no idea how it would turn out, or that I would even be near to a flimsy a few days into August, so why not see if I can't get it quilted by the end of the month?
So which do you prefer? Let me know, and why. If you haven't seen this before, it is Cynthia's Scrap-a-Palooza quilt #16 found here. Sixteen. I have made nine of them so far, I think...and my scrap bins have not gone down much at all...
I actually have an idea for a scrap quilt of my own to be used as another wheelchair quilt for seniors. My guild has decided that as the charity event for our Christmas party this year, they want members to make one to donate to one of several seniors' residences in Essex County. I get to do the demo at the September meeting. Eeek. Since I already gave away the two I made using Scrap-a-Palooza patterns, I will have to make another. Oh darn.
This afternoon: since there was no cushion on the footstool, Rocco decided to take advantage of the cushion on the patio chair I had just vacated! He is such a funny boy.
He had a big day today: we walked to the library, where he got to go inside with me, a first for him, to pick up a book I had on hold (the second in Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series, Young Adult books, the first one was excellent, inspired by actual, very odd, old black and white photographs).
He walked sedately beside me up to the desk and, much to the delight of the two librarians, promptly hopped up on his hind legs, front paws on the counter, as if to say, hi! We then trotted a few blocks over to the bank, where we went just inside the vestibule to the Instant Teller, been there, done that, although he pulled to go all the way inside to the real tellers! Figured he'd been allowed inside the library, why not inside here too?!
