A quilt friend gave me a pattern to help use up my scrap fabric stash and it is called the "Sour Dough Quilt"...have you heard about this pattern? There are several references about it on line and many good pictures of great quilts.
You need to sort fabric into lights and darks and there are 1 1/2" strips cut into 1 1/2" squares and 2 1/2" rectangles. Next you add 4 1/2" squares to this. An accent color is used for the 1 1/2" squares that go down the middle of each 8 1/2" block.
So, I am cutting and sorting and trying to decide what color I will need for the accent color and if I want to select certain fabric or fabrics for the 4 1/2" blocks. I think I would like to use a special fabric for those...but not sure. Most of my scraps tend to be bright colors with alot of yellow, my favorite color!!
I would love to see others Sour Dough Quilts so I can get ideas on how I want to complete this one. I am using up small scrap strips that I have saved and the cutting is not taking too long...
