Plaidish–Color Gets the Credit, Value Does the Work

I found this quilt on Pinterest and followed the link to the directions because I thought it was such a great example of “color gets the credit, value does the work”.  Also, it used a lot of scraps!  In particular, I had TWO bins full of 5″ charms from a swap group I used to belong to, and I used an entire bin to make this quilt 🙂

Yes! There were a lot of little intersections to match–good practice!

If you ask Ms. Google or search on Pinterest, you can see many variations made by other quilters.

  1. I love this quilt a lot! but I am also spooked by those tiny little squares in the sashing. I think I can manage that thin sashing but then I might just paint in the squares or hand stitch them. For me it would be faster than trying to match corners. 🙂

      • Ok, I have cut most of my pieces and I have made the tops and bottoms of the dark blocks. Now I am just waiting for your tutorial before I do the precise piecing in the middle of the blocks!
        I started with scraps, but I have three more colorways in my head too. I am not letting myself look on Pinterest for any other versions or I will get sidetracked. 🙂 I am so glad you showed us this quilt.
