Attended a scrappy quilt course presented by a South African teacher, Doortjie Gersbach, and, using only triangles made this quilt. The name of this quilt got a special meaning when I, somewhere along the line, got mixed up between my medium & dark fabrics and by the end of day 2 of the course, realized that I didn't have enough of the one value. Just to find out later that I've anyway been using the wrong value all along. First day at home, spent all evening unpicking and then trying to regroup fabrics into piles of light, medium & dark values.

However.... still completed the quilt exactly 9 days after finishing the course but I honestly don't think I will ever do something like this again. In any way, not attend a course to do this. I might somewhere in my old age realize that I have way too many scraps and start stitching these together to use it up but whether I will set out to make a deliberate scrap quilt.... don't think so!
