Old Tyme Scrappy

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The juxtaposition of light and dark really seemed to work well. I was able to sort the fabrics appropriately and piece it in a systematic manner. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I actually sewed this quilt in blocks of four pieces. Then sewed four blocks together. Then strip pieced it. My main piece of advice is to not think too much about what fabrics to use. I have all kinds in this quilt. The lights blend with the lights and the darks with the darks. But if you look at it close up, there is quite a variation in the darks and the lights.
