The winter scrap project from 2019-2020. For several years, I have endeavored to do a large quilt from scraps during the winter months. It's my way of trudging through January and February, then waiting out March for spring. With bright colors and batiks, it's hard to throw away the smaller scraps! So I used 1" black sashing and just built blocks in an assembly line. No hurry, it was a joy to work on. I just tried to keep the colors balanced as the blocks grew. Originally, I planned to make the whole quilt one large block. Again, it was just too much. Dividing it with wider black sashing helped settle it down--easier on the eye. That is, the eye can take in one section at a time without being overwhelmed about where to look. This quilt went to a lovely and loving home--always the absolute best outcome!
