Playing the Scales is such a fun quilt to make!! It is super easy and goes together really quick. It finishes at 62" x 66" and makes a great lap size quilt. It focuses on dividing your fabrics into Low Volume and High Volume (yes, I made that up, but you get the idea :) and showing off a fun "scale" with the contrast between the two.
Playing the Scales uses 20 Fat Quarters. And we all have lots of those right ;) I know I have a stack of low volume fat quarters leftover from bundles and they will work great for this quilt :) But this quilt also works great with Jelly Roll Strips, and there is a notation for that at the end of the tutorial ;)
And speaking of notations, I have also added a notation at the end of the tutorial for making this same design into a Queen Size quilt. I had a few folks ask, so I sat down and figured out the math ;) So if you want to make Playing the Scales in a queen size, that is an option as well. (It is totally on my list to make ;)
And that is my Playing the Scales quilt. I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday!!!
