Pink 2.5 Inch Scraps and Then Some


This week I dug into the 2.5 inch pink scraps.   

I made two 10 inch Lady of the Lake blocks.  The centers are six inch so I used some larger scraps for those. 

I also sewed together pink 2.5 inch bits and pieces usually less than a 2.5 inch square. The strips will probably be used later in the year in a Chinese Coin quilt or as a border. 

 Two 8 inch Depression Blocks. 
I've been making these for years. 

And I made some mini Happy Blocks.  They have 2.5 inch centers and I raided the 1.5 inch scraps for the sides.  I've been making these for years too.

Your happy blocks are such a good idea! Whenever I see them, I think I should be making them, too. I'll have to go on a hunt for whatever cute prints I have that would make a good center!

As usual, I drool over your depression blocks. My brain is screaming at me to make some with all my HSTs. And you Lady of the Lake blocks are wonderful, too.

Super collection of blocks, Cathy. I always look forward to seeing what blocks you decide to make each week. All delightful. I've never made Depression blocks and every time I see yours I feel I must try them myself. One day! The Happy Blocks are delicious.l
