Finish it up Friday - Playing the Scales



I am a tiny bit late to the Friday party. I finished the quilt in the morning, took some pictures of it to post last night but went out to dinner first. Came home looked at the photos and the front photo was missing. I had a camera glitch while taking it and silly me, did not check it out. So today I had to wait for some daylight and then decided to wash it first. Well.......the washer would not spin and drain so still getting to posting this before lunch. If you see a quilt in this post then I guess all is well!

This is my first big quilt using low volume pieces with some mid to dark range prints. I was hoarding this FQ pack of Textures by Angela Walters for something but I didn't know what. With all the hoopla over the Fall quilt market right now, I realized that some of my favorite designers are coming out with new lines. Yikes...more hoarding or facing the music and getting something created. I opted for creating. 

Playing the  scales is a pattern tutorial posted recently by: Melissa Correy
at Happy Quilting (the happy quilter)blog. I just loved this Melissa!
I am not totally great about following directions so ended up with some strips that didn't go anywhere so I put them on the back. :)
It measures approx. 52 x 65 
this is super big for me to try to quilt so I used just simple organic lines. 
Quilted with Wonderfil #50 weight thread which worked wonderfully. 

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts HERE


  1. I love the combo of greys, blues and yellows. Did you use jelly rolls for this?
