WIP Wednesday: Scrapitude and Landscape

3 Comments

 BT6RdC7IcAAVc1fLast week I heard about the Scrapitude Mystery Quilt at Quilting for the Rest of us, so I pulled out my scraps.  It’s heavy on 2 1/2″ squares, and I have plenty.

I think I’ll use this in my guest room, so I tried to lean toward a palette of wine, green, and brown.  That yellow came out of there, but I left in a lot of diverse fabrics, so it really will be scrappy.

Then I got down to chain piecing and soon ended up with Step 1 finished.  See what everyone’s doing on Sandy’s site or the Flickr group.

 

Once I had those all tidily back in their pink basket, I got back to work on my landscape piece.  Here’s what I have so far.

I hope you’re playing with fabric.

I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday on Freshly Pieced, and with Scrapitude Progress on Quilting for the Rest of Us.

  1. I really like the palette you’re using for your Scrapitude project!

  2. I like the landscape, kind of reminds me of home. 🙂

  3. Thanks for linking up! I love your palette for Scrapitude. Unusual background choice–way cool! Looking forward to seeing how it comes together. And the landscape quilt is great!
