It's a flimsy!
Crazy Ladies of the Lake

I made a few of these ten inch blocks each month from scraps from October 2016 - July 2018. It was a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project so I used light and dark scraps in the color of the month or scraps in the color of the month plus another.
Most of the 6.5 inch center HST parts were left over from making a basket quilt several years ago and the 2.5 inch side HSTs came from the 2.5 inch scrap box. The 2.5 inch scraps determined how many blocks would get made each month. Sometimes I hardly had any scraps in the color of the month and barely could make one. Other months I ended up with several blocks.
When I start making blocks I usually don't know the size of the quilt I'll end up with or how many blocks I'll need. I just make blocks. I like looking through scraps and combining colors and making blocks.
In this case I decided 81 blocks was enough. And then they sat around for awhile taking up space. I loved the individual blocks but feared I would not be able to combine them into a quilt top without looking like a jumbled mess. Several times I got the blocks out and looked at them and put them back in the box afraid I would be so disappointed if I sewed them all together.
Then one day I told myself to stop procrastinating and just do it.
So I did!
