I don't let my 30s reproduction scraps or my Civil War reproduction scraps play with other scraps. Don't ask me why because I don't really know. I guess I think reproductions are special - better than all the rest- a bit snobby maybe. (Actually, I think more than 30s repros sneak into the 30s scrap pile because I sometimes don't know the difference).
Anyway, when I have accumulated a pile of 1.5- 30s reproduction scraps (or what passes for them in my head)...
...I make 5 inch blocks like these sixteen I recently finished. I use Kona Spring for the green because that's pretty close to the color of green my grandma used in the quilts she made.
I use the tutorial at Molly Flanders. For a larger size block there's a tutorial at Mary Quilts. (I think I'm going to use my mountain of selvages and make the bigger blocks...someday)
I started assembling four of the 5 inch blocks into larger star blocks but since I make blocks intermittently depending upon scraps, I didn't want all of the same scraps to show up close together in a star block. So, I have 17 star blocks completed and 110 single blocks. Only 110 more single blocks and I'll have a large quilt...someday.
It's the second Tuesday of the month and you know what that means!
