For my next project, I decided to make Splash from Sunday Morning Quilts by AmandaJean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison. Here is one place that you may purchase the book from, if desired. This is the original Splash found in their book.
Since my green scrap bin is overflowing, I decided that green would be where the aqua is located. I then went round and round on what color for the orange space. Should it be orange? yellow? purple? white? black? In the end, I chose to cut apart a little chunk of the yellow sky from my sailboat quilt. I blogged about the yellow brick sky here.
This is where I started my journey.
Amanda Jean's pattern calls for the making of larger segments and then columns.
I was trying to 'stick to the spring greens' but I realized that I just didn't have the 'right' scraps for this project. So as any scrapper would do, other greenish fabrics joined into the mix. I was struggling to make the third column as stated in the directions when I had the realization...'It's my quilt and I can make it a little different'. I then started using smaller pieces of the green and sewing the smaller bits to get bigger bits. Not exactly the look but close enough for me! LOL! It's measuring in the neighborhood of 48 x 65 (I think) before quilting.
That is amazing, Pat! Your green scrap bin really was overflowing. I love green, and all those little bits and pieces are really appealing to me!
Oh my gosh - this is awesome!!! Love the scrappiness and the way you made it yours!!!
The green crumbs make a lively mixture! Congrats on the shout-out from Susan at Midweek Makers!
