Picking the Perfect Fabric:  One pattern with many different fabric combinations can develop into a fantastic study in color and fabric placement.  The thrill of variety, the fascination of one small or large color change and the pattern play makes designs captivating and exciting to design.  Fabric choices can be the most challenging part of deciding a quilt project.  We keep wondering what if, or where do I put a certain piece or color?  You may visit Scrappy Patches and enjoy the excitement of playing with different colors and fabric combination to create the quilt that perfectly expresses YOU!  Would you like it already picked out and just want to follow a pattern and complete a project?  We have options for you too!  March we offered the $2.00 Buck A Block using Two Strip Mix up pattern.  April 16, we are offering the "Painter's Garden" BOM, $19.45 a month. Again, this can be pieced for two different designs, you can choose!
