Playing with scraps

This is a new block I'm playing with to use up 1-1/2" scrap strips. The blocks finish at 7" so I'm going to put them on point and use a light background in the alternating spots so that the quilt will be light and colorful. Plus I like how these blocks look almost circular from a distance.

And as of today I finished the last scrappy #triparoundtheworldblocks ...42 of them. This was made JUST from scraps.... I cut up a bunch of small scraps into 2-1/2" strips and squares. The squares went into this. I have a small pile of squares left...guess those will go in the scrap box for now.
Tomorrow, or Sunday, I start putting the blocks together for a lap sized top... 60"x70"....no borders...just quilt and bind.

Almost Christmas

I'm still in hexie mode... These pretty Kaffe fabrics are going to become hexagons that I will appliqué to background fabric. Sashi...
