Light and Dark Squares 3, 6

Though I have used just two fabrics, this would work well with dark and light fabric scraps if they are well sorted, and all the medium fabrics ae saved for another project. Using one multicoloured fabric is my way of making a quick scrappy quilt in Electric Quilt, instead of using 35 dark and 43 light fabrics and mixing them up in five or six colourations of each and every block, which in this case are 9 patch blocks.

If I was to make these into real quilts instead of virtual, I would possibly use just one plain background fabric, especially as my fabric scrap bin has a lot of dark fabrics, and very few small scraps of light at this point in time.

    I love scrap quilts and also have the problem of not enough lights/neutrals. I have to buy some yardage or fat quarter bundles of lights in order to use up my overwhelming stack of scraps!
