Last 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.
I chose a dusty pink for my background, and actually labeled the stacks I cut, since this will be worked on monthly.
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.

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!
