Guild Scrap Challenge

My guild's challenge for February was to make a quilted piece out of one new fat quarter plus all the leftover scraps from our last sewing project, which for me was repairing the dresden quilt plate.

I don't know if I'll finish the embellishments and surface needlework in time for the March 1st deadline, but here's what I have finished so far:

The tough part of the challenge is that we couldn't trim or cut the leftover scraps; we had to use them in as-is condition (which is why I went with a crazy quilt.) The darkest amethyst patches were my new fabric, which I thought added a good deep note. Here's a close-up:

I had to put this aside in order to finish a project for work (will I ever finish anything I start in the sewing room this month?) but I'm hoping to pick it up this weekend.
