Intuition Quilt, Eight go

One of the fabrics in the block from this post started bugging me as soon as I got the top back on the wall after attaching the last borders. The brownish-green plaid flannel did not go with any other fabric in the quilt at all. With this large number of different fabric scraps in one place that’s quite an accomplishment I’d say.

It just had to come out but I had used up all the suitable greens in my box. Then I remembered I had pulled out some strips for a string quilt from the same box just a few weeks before this scrap extravaganza started, so I decided I was allowed to put them back in. Lo and behold; right there were two green strips which would fit perfectly.

I’m still not that fond of seam ripping, but it was worth it after all.
Oh, I see another little piece of fabric that will probably bug me. Yeah, I’ll have to wait for a few days to see just how much.
