BaggO sCrap

A long time ago, in a distant yahoo group - we had a swap/challenge - similar to the one on the QA list. Basically you bag up a tyvek bag of scraps and send them to a central location (me), then you are sent a bag of scraps and you make something - eventually the scraps and the quilt/something make their way back to the original owner. Our first round went very well, the 2nd round went not so well. I swapped these bag without looking at the contents. One bag was sent to someone and the contents totally freaked her . So after deciding she could not do it justice - she sent it back to me - I have to say that I also freaked when I looked at the contents - now I know/knew who they belonged to (Marion) but it was still a challenge. This is one of the first weekends I've had time to spend in the studio - really working so I wanted to work on it. Here are my attempts with Marion's baggO sCrap. I hope she likes it!

It's going to be gorgeous! I notice that the main colors are all secondaries, green, purple, orange... so I can see why they were chosen, but there's a lot of strong contrast, so a challenging group to work with. Fun! B*B, Ysabeau

Deirdre - I really like this - it's gorgeous. The kind of thing you can look at again and again and see something different.

Thank you, Deirdre, that's *fab*. I'd forgotten all about it, to tell you the truth...so my fabric choices freak people out, huh?
