On The Wall 3/6/16


I guess it is part of that scrap challenge, but I pulled my totes of left over Marcus - FQs, scraps, and skinny strings.


Since I have finished up all the testing and quilting projects, I wanted to get started on the Westering Women BOM with Barbara Brackman.  I love the mix of history with quilts.



And I do love the heritage of the old blocks.  While playing with these and going thru those totes, I realized the cut offs and 'too small' bits would be perfect to play with..........



Temecula Quilt Co.'s 'Circa 2016' quilt along.  Yup, I put these little blocks together in a day to catch up with the center medallion of this quilt.  Don't hate me, I just really love playing with little bits and lose myself in them.



Even the next round of blocks got made.  I have no idea how many of these will be addded to the quilt, but I will certainly use my cut-offs from Westering to make these.



And to play along with Monday Making, I will start my 'Let's Book It' project.  I know, I was going to use up those odd layer cakes - BUT, I came across this JR and will use up some odd strips to fill in.



For the life of me, I couldn't get this to photo in true color, but it is blacks, greys, limey greens with just a smidge of yellow thrown in (some of the greens show as yellow).  I hope to get half of the blocks done today.  And this project will give me *bonus* little HSTs for another project.  SCORE!!

What are you working (playing) with?
