More scrap quilting

I was going to use these 4" x 8" blocks to make another 2-4-7 variation quilt like the last one.

Then I decided not to!

I decided that I'd make something a bit more like a stacked coins quilt.  Now that I have these three strips made I need to shop my stash to find something that will make the alternate stripes to complete the top.

I'm already wondering whether I'll make some 'statement quilting' like feathers or a leaf and vine design down the joining stripes, or whether I'll just go for an all over pattern.

Surely I'm not the only person who enjoys this sort of contemplation, even before I have the fabric joined into a quilt top?!?


  1. Whatever you choose the quilt will look wonderful

  2. Mmmmm, I am thinking cafe au lait with these colours, so perhaps wispy clouds of steam as quilting?

  3. Gorgeous colours! The blocks usually have their own ideas of what they want to become you just have to listen!'


Thanks for leaving a comment! I always appreciate it and will try to respond.
