Another small quilt

In May, I made this quilt top using my fabric scraps left over from the Twelve by Twelve Colorplay challenges. First, I put together some thin strips of fabric, "à la Brenda".
Then I cut them up, and pieced them back with more fabric scraps.
My first idea when I started this piece was to make another small quilt with an orange background, to go with this one.
But I liked it so much better with a blue border that I gave in.
It still has to be quilted. That will be for later.
Now, I'm reading some weaving books that I bought last year. I must decide what new techniques I'll try out in the next months.

Love what you have done with left over scraps. The colors are working very well together. Enjoy your summer!!

le bleu est plus tendre que l'orange, l'orange est plus 'spittant' ... sur que le choix n'était pas évident. j'aime bien les deux :-)
bonne lecture!
