It's been a while,

but I'm still here,
busy plugging away at various and sundry activities.  This is up on my design wall - a scrap quilt that I'm working on in between other projects.  These blocks are two HSTs, scraps from my blue and white quilt (except for those gold pieces, which is yet another project in the works):
 so, two HSTs sewn together:
then 1 1/2" squares sewn into four patches: 
then a four patch sewn to the two HSTs:  (grrrr, why did this next pic flip sideways???)
and another going in the other direction:
to make a 4 1/2" block:
which I will need about a trillion blocks to make a quilt!  But it's mindless work and I love it!
I also made some blocks in this layout:
but I like the white on the outside better.  
Well, I have lots to show you, but I should be getting ready for work right now, so I gotta skedaddle!  I hope to be back real soon!  Take care, my friends!  Have a blessed day!

  1. Your scrap quilt is looking lovely, I've got that many scraps left over from a CW quilt I'm making so your block idea would be a great way to help use them up.

  2. You're as crazy as a loon... just like me! (ggg) I've been cutting out 1-1/2-inch square and sewing them into four-patch blocks. I love the bright colors of what you're doing. And I like my bright colors too. Hope you'll pop by my blog for a peek. Thanks for sharing your mindless work - YOU said that, I didn't! LOL

  3. This one is a beauty! Love the idea of teeny postage stamps making a quilt.


I love to hear from you!
