Scrappy Trip Along
My Scrappy Trip Along quilt top is finally finished. After not being able to come up with a satisfactory arrangement on my own, my 18 year old daughter helped me take the blocks, arrange and rearrange for over an hour. There was too much red here, not enough pastel there. I was about ready to throw in the towel when she suddenly had the strangest look on her face. She took all the squares and began to quickly arrange them. She kept shushing me whenever I asked what she was doing. At the end, this arrangement appeared. I took one look at her and knew then, a quilter was born.

It's beautiful! What a great job with arranging the blocks. When des she start her quilt?��ReplyDelete
Hi Renee, I love your quilt and boy do I understand your quandary about arranging the square. I had my last quilt on the wall and asked my two daughter's for advice-they aren't as avid a quilter as I am but boy do they have talent. I think once there kids are grown, they will be undertaking a lot of quilts. You've done a wonderful job, I wonder what quilt pattern you'll use(you may have already, I just can't tell).ReplyDelete
Have a great Valentine's Day!
Beautiful! I love the colors and arrangement.ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, Renee, that is just so pretty!ReplyDelete
Beautiful color, perfect arrangement, yay for you!
I think that is a great story, My 11 year old niece helped me arrange my Amy Butler quilt and it came out awesome, plus, we always have that memory along with the quilt. Such a great arrangement! Kudos!ReplyDelete

Oh my stars...the lay is lovely! the colors are wonderful, I love it! Just look how pretty turned out. Yes indeed I think a new quilter has been born, your daughter has the eye..
My husband helps me with lay out of some of my quilts. Sometimes another eye is helpful.
