This quilt is very interesting. I love the idea of using up scraps. I once made a quilt using scraps and even cutting up some of my hubby's old oxford shirts to use. It is fun to see all the different fabrics on scrap quilts. What I find interesting about this quilt pattern is the way the eye is drawn to a particular area of the quilt and all the different colors look so festive. The string quilts are fun and the way this one looks really makes me want to try it! I think it would look fantastic in all different shades of blue, making it resemble water. On my list to try!
