Scrappy Quilt

Scrappy quilts....I love how they look but everytime I play with my scraps to make one I can't get past the idea of sewing together two fabrics that don't match.   I just can't do it!!  But look how nice my clients quilt is...I know the end result will be great so why can't I just get over my 'phobia'.   I'll keep trying.
The quilt is backed in a soft navy flannel and I used Navy So Fine in the bobbin and light Brown So Fine on the top.  I used the Whirlygig panto.
