this one is mine

I'm starting something new, and this one is just for me. After I made the first drab lap quilt, I tried a second one to see how it would look without the muslin.

I liked the first one a lot. I loved the second one. I wanted it to be big enough to wrap up in. Three months later, I'm finally cutting squares of every drab fabric I used in the first two, and every drab fabric I can find in my stash that I left out of the first two.



One of my fears with these controlled scrap quilts is that I'll find the absolute perfect fabric lurking in my stash right after I've finished the quilt. The original goal of this quilt was to use up some ugly fabrics that play nicely together, but that's not going to happen. It turns out that I've got a whole lot of fabrics that match this color scheme and I'm not using more than one, maybe two, WOF strips of each print.

I know it's not really funny, but your fear over finding the perfect scrap *after* finishing made me laugh! Enjoy playing with this one!! :)
