Remember I had that table full of scraps, well there was a large amount of 2.5" strips in blues, greens, and purples. Rather than pack them away, I played with an easy block to use them up.
I am usually pretty good at gestimating what block will get the most out of that pile of scraps. I had figured I would get 100 of these. Close - 95 - not bad for a day of play.
There was this little baggy with strips and pieces that looked interesting and I will play with these today. A lot of an old Marcus 'Collection for a Cause' line - Comfort. But they are all pre-cut 2" strips - maybe left from a kit?? The red/white/blue will be tucked away for a project as our guild will be participating in a Wounded Warriors quilt gifting later this year. The smaller bits look to be cut-offs from a project and I will probably chopped them down into my barrel system.
Wednesday is Temecula's 'GEESE' day, so I hope to add another 20 of these. And I would like to add another 10 or 20 more of my plaid blocks to the pile.
The next Solistic block will be out, but my 'main' play date if going to be with my Grands today. I am spending the afternoon (babysitting) and have some crafty stuff to take along for some play time with them.
Enjoy Your Day,
