Lots of scraps, cut into strips and squares, put together as quarter log cabins and set on point. I put many of the finished blocks on the design wall and quickly determined that they did indeed need to go on point. After playing and playing with them, I also determined that I wanted a sashing to help really bring out all the pretty prints. I tried lots of solids but it was a no-go.
Then I tried Grunge. Yes! But what color? I went to my fave quilt shop and layed out about 8 different Grunge bolts on a table with some of my blocks. The quilt shop professionals weighed in on their choices (a very bright lime green) and many of the customers did as well. It was then narrowed to three. I kept going back to this turquoise and I love the end result.
The quilt sings “Bohemian” to me – reminds me a little of the hippie times in the 60’s. It will be gifted to a special young lady I’ve known since she was a little girl and I understand she likes this style. I hope it will keep her warm and happy for many years to come. For me it was a total delight to make. Now I only have about ten million more scraps to use!
