I have decided to only use my fat quarter stash and not bust into the yardage stash. We have been directed to remember we are the SCRAP squad, not the make-it-like-the-picture squad. :-)
The colors I have chosen are bright and I have limited brights in yellow, orange, green, and dark purple. We'll see how it goes. Meanwhile, there are a variety of ways the completed blocks can be arranged to make up the quilt top. I've played with a few and have found these two to be the most pleasing.
Which to choose?
I have 30 blocks done thus far and am totally enjoying making this quilt! While each block is constructed the same way, like all scrappy quilts I've completed, it's a new adventure with each block because of the variety of colors within.
