192 - 2.5 inch HSTs from 30s scraps.
My 2.5 inch 30s reproduction scrap box was starting to overflow so I made 2.5 inch HSTs which became 16 eight inch blocks which became 4 sixteen inch blocks. And now I have 6 out of the 25 blocks I want for a large sized quilt.
Last December I started making Ocean Waves Variation blocks but instead of making 3.5 inch HSTs like the pattern at Quilter's Cache I made 2.5 inch HSTs. Some of the HSTs are leftover from other projects and the 30s are combined with Kona Snow. Some of the other HSTs are combined with unbleached muslin. All of the HSTs I just made are combined with unbleached muslin. I use an EZ angle ruler to cut the HSTs.
Because I used my scraps and because tomorrow is Scraptastic Tuesday I'll be linking up there when the time comes. (Link also on the sidebar). On Wednesday I'll link these scraps, er, I mean Ocean Waves, up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
I'm surprised I get anything made this time of year. If I'm not working at the full time job I'm trying to get all the gardens planted and the perennials weeded in between all the heavy duty rains. We've been cutting and eating lettuce, green onions and asparagus from the garden. I forgot to plant any radishes. The bluebells, lilacs and tree peonies are blooming and the Iris are almost ready to bloom. I see flowers in the strawberry patch but it's so weedy in there I'm not sure I'll be able to find the strawberries when it is time to pick them though I'm sure the grandkids will be able to find them.
