I dug into my blue 2.5 inch scraps this week and I sure had to make a lot of HSTs.
Last year I made these ten inch (Crazy) Lady of the Lake blocks. I have about half of what I need for a BIG quilt so they are on my to-do list again this year as an Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) project. I found a baggie of six inch half HST pieces leftover from making basket blocks several years ago so used some of them for the centers as well as some chunk pieces.
I don't know how many years I've been making these eight inch Depression Blocks but I have about 66 of them if I can believe my note in the bag with them. Ok...so these get carried over again this year too. I limit myself to actual scraps so how many I make depends on my scraps. But I like BIG quilts so it still make take several years to have enough blocks. And I'm okay with that.
And finally I made some Sprouts. Somehow I forgot I had these in the works and skipped over them last year but what was lost has now been found and they are back in the scrap rotation. However many I end up with after this year is how many will be in the quilt, I think. I'm not going to count but just surprise myself at the end of the year. I'm just going to go where the scraps take me.
And where are the scraps taking everyone else?
