scrap challenge report

Alright ladies (and maybe gentlemen?) - today is the last day of the scrap challenge. 

Your tops should be finished by midnight (your time) tonight - or whatever version of the challenge you set for yourself.  (Remember I left the rules up to you.)

I finished the first one a while back:


(That's dark blue for the sashing and borders (many of you thought it was black).)

And just about an hour ago, I finished a second one:


I made it so big, the hubby was having trouble holding it up.  78" square!  Two trips to buy grey (that don't exactly match and I hope that fact will be hidden when it's quilted).  Too much time procrastinating.  But I think it will look nice on our red couch for a snuggle quilt.

So now it's your turn.  Use the box below to link to your scrap quilt post.
Happy quilting!
Katie

How fun! That single all red star is a nice surprising element. I wouldn't worry about the greys not matching. Just call that an intentional design element :) -Joanne

I love it! I love the random placement of the stars and the all red one. I too would claim that the two greys were intentional (it is a scrap quilt after all). Great job as usual.

It might be nearly midnight my time, but I did get it done! I love how both of yours turned out. I even really like the different greys you used and the subtle contrast that it provides.

Your quilts are great. I especially like the blues, yellows and whites in the first one, it looks great! I remember the cute fabric you used for the center of the stars in the grey one. It is adorable, too.

Way to go, Katie! As you know, I'm still plodding along with mine, and as you mentioned... I did get all the blocks done!

Both of your quilts look great!
