Inspired by the excellent hints of Bonnie Hunter how to use all your stash I tried the “Hidden Pinwheels” and sewed a few blocks of leftovers of a bed quilt I had given to my mother. (I’m not so in love with all the “brownies”, but in her house those colors fit so well).

I separated the scraps in two halves: lights and darks. And so you can find out a pattern, one block has a darker rhombus, the next a lighter one.

It was a fun using the hints for efficient sewing.

Oh, it's beautiful! Lovely design, great colors. I don't remember seeing a pattern like this on Bonnie's site. I love the dimensions of these blocks.

Your color exercises obviously pay off! I've always wanted to make a quilt where the colour scheme of the whole quilt is planned out ahead of time like that. So far, i tend to just put things together on the fly, as i go.

Thank you so much, your nice comment really made my day!

I think both are talents, different, but of equal importance. To be able just to play with colors, to go ahead by what you find and - on the other hand - to plan and follow consequently your guidance.

I can't remember how I found your site but I'm crazy about your design and color choices. Wonderful work.
