    Squeaky, I find it really helps me to make a swatch chart, similar to what the pattern shows on pp. 2-3. I cut a small sample of each fabric (usually, I do 1" x 1") and paste it next to the letter. That swatch chart is my guide; I keep it near my cutting table for the duration of the project.

    As for making it scrappier, I think it would still be stunning IF you are careful to keep the same degree of contrast and value. Part of the beauty of this quilt is the subtle gradation of the flying geese colors and the square-in-a-square colors. Even if you substitute different fabrics, you will still have to keep track of where each piece goes.

    Love it! I love patterns that look very complex and complicated to make but are actually relatively simple. This has a lot of HST's, but they are easy to do and they come together here to make a gorgeous quilt! Thanks for posting!
