You may remember that I struggled with this quilt for a while. After sewing the scraps to make slabs of fabric, I cut them into 5" squares and framed them with Kona Cream, Tan, Indigo or Bison. I liked it at the time and had about 12 blocks completed. Then I had to put it aside for a while and when I returned. Blah! I hated it enough to rip almost all of it out. Then I got smart and started cutting frames off. I used the cut frames.
I left some of the inside frames. Some of the others I sewed back on, leaving them exactly as they were, even the odd shapes.
The indigo pieces that came from the frames made for fun little accents and the rest got cut up into binding, so very little was wasted. The Kona Bison, along with the indigo, was just too dark, so I rolled it up to use later. Luckily, it's mostly 2½" strips, so it will fit for lots of applications.
I just played and had fun putting it all together. I could not recreate it exactly because there's no way to figure out how I got this. But I like it: it's bold and different and was surprisingly fast to make, well, once the fabric slabs were made.
