Scrap Happy Summer Fruision

Well I combined the inspiration and ingredients. And with my neighbor's help this is what I have so far. This is big enough that with borders it will make a small throw. But I'm thinking I will make it bigger. I really like the design it is creating and want to see more of it. At first I had a hard time following the picture in the book so exactly. I never follow a pattern. I always like to make it mine. And all though I did not use the pattern it is the same quilt as is in the book. I tried moving things around at first and did not like the effect as well. Here is a sample of what I tried. Although it is cute I really like the effect in the other arrangement.
Well it's time for another link up with Scrap Happy Summer. Because there has been some confusion about how this works I'll try to explain it better. Each Wednesday I'll join up with Mr. Linky. Then if you have a scrappy creation you would like to share. Create a post with a picture of your creation and a link back to my blog (in your post) so others can find their way to Mr. Linky and the others who have created scrappy creations. And if they desire share their own scrappy creations. If you have questions please ask.

  5. What always amazes me is the main and then the side patterns that are made with quilts. Scrappy quilts like this give so much to look at. I could never tire of picking out the different fabrics and shapes they each make. Love it.
