Welcome to day 4 of the No Scrap Left Behind blog tour! Today Bernie of Needle and Foot is sharing progress on her very own version of the ring me quilt. When she was planning out her quilt, she asked me what I thought of using a dark gray background instead of the white. Being a huge fan of gray, I thought it was a great idea. Although, I must admit that I get very nervous about being responsible for other people chopping up 5 yards of their precious fabric. So, I encouraged her to piece some scrappy strips and do a trial run before she cut into her yardage. It looked amazing on the gray background and she is well on her way. You can check out her progress here..... it is STUNNING! She is also sharing her very organized scrap storage methods and offering up a free copy of the book. I hope you go check it out!
I love BIG quilts made from small pieces. The overall visual impact is second to none!
Steffani did a beautiful job quilting it with a squared off stipple. It was just the right treatment to finish this one off. I don't think that I'm supposed to pick a favorite, but today, I'm pretty sure that this would be at the top of that list!
