I went with DRASTIC....at least, for me it is!.... You take a perfectly lovely little quilt...and CUT IT...on both diagonals....EEK!
I then made four large log cabin blocks. This enabled me to use up the last bits of some of my favorite lines...Terrain and Sunkissed, and a few others.
I sewed the big blocks in a four patch...
Then turned it on point, and used the scrappy boxes as the corners. Putting a small, solid strip between the big and little blocks.
So what do you think? I've only cut one other quilt like this. It was a mystery quilt from Jess. I tell ya, it took some doing to get myself to cut that. But, as both the mystery quilt and this one I made came out looking great, I guess it's a good thing. LOL
I'm linking up with Jenna today.
And Lee at Freshly pieced.
UPDATE: I've decided to join the Scrap Attack quilt-along over at Stitched in Color with this quilt. Thank you Rachel! What a fun idea.
Have a great day!
