Trip Down Memory Lane Thanks to SS

Scrap quilts always make me sentimental.  Going through the scrap bin and remembering quilts past makes for a fun trip down memory lane.  As I prepare for my first Scrap Squad quilt I decided to go with a  masculine theme.  Since my boys all want this quilt I thought I would play with the same color scheme.  
I pulled a bunch of red.  Bits from my Florence quilt, a Christmas project, and a tribute quilt to my Grandpa Harry.

Then some grays.  Leftovers from my Double Wedding Ring, Merry Jane, and a few more.
Finally a few blacks.  Not many scraps left there.  I used most of them up in Be the Good.  I might not even use these.  Now that I see them all together I'm worried they won't read dark enough and be to similar to the grays.  
                         What are your thoughts?  Should I use them or just use a tone on tone black?

  1. You do have lot of dark gray. They sort of blend with that.

  2. I would use them, the scrappier the better I think.

  3. Love the colors, but think you might want to supplement with some stronger black to balance. Looks like it will be a beautiful quilt no matter which way you go!

    Thanks for sharing..

  4. I'd either remove the darker greys from the grey pile or use a strong black, otherwise there is a risk of losing the distinction. Enjoy :)

  5. From the look of the pictures, I would combine the grey and several from the black stack as one then use a strong sold black for your black contrast. I can't tell by the picture if this would work or not. I always loved scrap quilts the best.
