In a recent post, A Quilt Is Born, I talked about one of my bucket-list quilts, the giant gingham. I mentioned the one I made is moderately scrappy and I quite like it, but I decided to make a full-on scrappy version and a totally non-scrappy one to compare and contrast.
Today, I started my super-scrappy one. It’s going to be black/gray/white. It’s hard to form an opinion based on such a small sample but, as you know, I’m pre-disposed to love super-scrappy quilts so I predict I will be happy with it.
As I was sewing this section, I was thinking,”how would this look with improv-pieced blocks?” so I might have to give that a try next. I think it would be fabulous.
Here’s the one that began this obsession…
Looks like I might be sewing gingham quilts for a while. Have you made one yet? I would love to see it.
Here are my take-aways for the giant gingham quilt…
- Super-easy, quick quilt
- Can be completed in as few as 3 hours (non-scrappy, baby size)
- Great for beginners
- A lovely way to study color values
