With deadlines and
many other quilt related projects in the works
I really shouldn't think of starting

and imagining what the quilt will eventually look like.

the scrappy look
with varied low volume backgrounds
like the one Lissa made for the original pattern.
Scrappy quilts really do call to me the most.
