    spiritweaver's top 12! (52.5" x 63")
    By: Donna Gonzalez, Massachusetts, USA

    I wanted the quilt to be made from my stash, in true quilt fashion! I did not plan an overall color scheme. My parameters were that each block was to work within itself.My hope was that as a scrappy quilt, it would all work together.My only deviation was how to tie in block 2,which I did in block 11

    Blog: craftytammie

    I started with fabrics from my stash and used the deep brown to make the colors pop. Then a medium gray for the sashing, I think it brings a nice balance. Bright green for the cornerstones, I love how it draws out the greens in the prints! I'm not adding borders to mine. Hope I get your vote!
