  3. I don't have a particular favorite fabric when it comes to scrapping - but red makes it pop, black frames, and white will tame it!

  5. My favorite scrappy focus has been whatever I was doing at the time. This summer I HAD to use a stack of deep blues and tans in a quilt. Another time I wanted all my florals gone from my stash. Soon I will start one from old feedsack scraps I found while cleaning out my parents' home and then it will be a red and cream.

  31. I like light neutrals in scrap quilts to show off the other colors. Thanks for the giveaway! Merry Christmas!

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm a follower now! What fabric do I like best in scrappy quilts? Is "all of them" acceptable? I've made scrappy quilts with batiks, with 30's, with 19th c repros, Christmas-themed, and on and on.

    Several years ago I made a rail fence in graded black/white fabrics and red -- using the same fabrics throughout. I was somewhat uncomfortable as I sewed, but not until I had finished did I realize that my discomfort was because I'd
    used only five different fabrics. (The design wouldn't have worked as well with a huge assortment, but I regard that quilt as the exception that proved my rule: the more fabrics in a quilt, the better!)

    ReplyDelete
