About Scraps Again

geezerfolks_SharonG_FLMarch 16, 2011

Remember talking about doing 2-tone scrappy? I had thought about it, too. Lo and behold, Le Ann has her 2011 BOM ready to go June 1st, and, guess what?! lol

Sharon, that's very nice!

This is a Bonnie Hunter two tone scrappy called My Blue Heaven. I love this quilt, but don't have nearly enough scraps in any one color to do it. I've thought about blending colors across the quilt: starting with blues in one corner, then merging into greens, then another color, then another. All with the scrappy beige as the 2nd color. I think that's beyond my planning skills though!

These are my dh's favorite colors, so I will have to consider this one (like I needed another BOM project!). I will have to work on my scraps, though. I think I'm definitely lacking.

Sharon,I've never done a BOM but would like to try one. Thanks for the link.

The Bonnie Hunter one is one awesome quilt. Right now, I can't see myself making it .....the thought alone overwhelms me, although my DH would also love it.

That is a lovely BOM quilt! I love to make the light backgrounds scrappy in my scrap quilts if it suits the quilt. Thanks for sharing this one! I've bookmarked it for the future.

Kate, I love your idea for My Blue Heaven! I think it would be great!

Our guild's BOM this year is called Black & White Delight. You could always keep a constant third color if you like 3-color quilts.

Kate, There's a ton of QST in that quilt, eh? I would have no desire to change colors in something like this. Too much planning for me. But, if anyone can do it, it's you!! You go girl!!!

Robbi, My DH likes blue, too. Are you lacking blues and creams in your scraps? Sometimes it helps to go for a bundle of fat quarters to help in that area. We can truly help you build up scraps!

Geraldine, You don't have to be afraid of doing Le Ann's BOM's as she has someone other than herself make a block using the directions before she posts them.

Teresa, This is the site where I got the BOM A Quilter's Coat of Many Colors from. Sewing the last seam of the binding on that one now.

Hope some of you join me in this one. @:)

I'm still working on my BOM hand applique from last year so I can't start another one, but maybe this will inspire me to start on that one again. It's been idle way too long.

Sharon, are you going to do all the border stars too? So that will really be like 3 blocks each month: one of the center ones and a couple of the border stars? It's a huge project but it's a beautiful quilt!

Sharon, thanks for the link to the BOM. It will be perfect for my small quilt group. Some of us want to do a BOM together. I will show it to them tomorrow night. I already sent it to our newest member and she said she loves it.

Kate, It looks like the border stars are 9" finished so I might make some up along the way. I'd like to not duplicate a star pattern, but we'll see how far that gets me. lol

Linda, That's great about your little quilt group. Sounds like fun. I'll be up north when it starts, so I'll have to play catch up when I get back. @:(
