Yellow 2.5 Inch Scrap Edition

I dug into my yellow 2.5 inch scraps this week.  Combined with a few other colors I ended up with five 10 inch Crazy Lady of the Lake blocks.  This is a Rainbow Scrap Challenge carry over project from previous years. I'm hoping to have a total of 81 blocks at year end. 

Another carry over project - Sprouts. 

And yet another carry over project- eight inch Depression blocks. 

I also have been sewing together the end pieces of the 2.5 inch scraps if they are less than a 2.5 inch square. Someday I'll probably use them in a Chinese Coins quilt or a border. 

And I made a couple of little four inch Happy Blocks.   I have a giant pile of a variety of different four inch blocks. Maybe I should find something to do with them.

Still loving those LOTL blocks -- my second-ever quilt included that design - I need to follow your lead.

All that yellow and gold makes my heart sing, my favorite color. Someday I'll start a lady of the lake quilt, I love that block.

I've never made a Lady of the Lake quilt but I really like the look of the blocks. How big are your blocks?
