A Few More Blocks for the Buckeye Beauty

I made 18 more blocks, most medium/dark in the green/blue color range, to add to the others.







I also added a few brown blocks from the original group I'd made.  And now the layout looks (almost) like this.  I made 18 extra blocks thinking I would go for an 8 x 9 layout but it seemed too wide so I've left it (for the moment) at a 7 x 9 layout.


I know there will be some more rearranging of blocks tomorrow.  And them I'm hoping to sew these them together soon so I can move on to the red Buckeye Beauty.  While this quilt is not one of my favorites I think it will be okay.

  2. I think this is a wonderful "random looking" scrap quilt--the kind I wish I could make. Your mix of colors and prints (even a little Kaffe) is what scrap quilts are all about, and it works for me!

  3. I love the colors of this........and again, it reminds me a beachy kind of scene with the blues, greens, and browns. It's a great scrap quilt!
