i start with a pile. basically, this is the product of my rummaging thru my scrap bins for pieces that i think will work well together. ruthie's flavor- blues, greens, and browns. a quilt after my own heart :]
then i come up with a plan and cut away. i wanted strips with lots of different prints, against a clean white background. and this is what i came up with. it is, of course, not set in stone till i sew it all together- always changing as it comes together.
and finally a finished quilt! i stippled it, because i find that crinkle absolutely irresistible, and backed it with a martha stewart sheet in an amazing shade of aqua blue. i hope she finds it atleast as half delicious as i do. honestly, i don't know if this picture does it justice. i could look this quilt for hours.
