More Scrap Blocks


This is the latest block I've made for my Scrap Bag Quilt. Each of these little blocks are 5 1/2 inches square. Four of these blocks make a 10 1/2 inch block to join the other blocks I've made. I noticed I had plenty of scraps but not enough of them to make a 10 1/2 inch block. I can use those smaller scraps by making these smaller version. I also think these smaller versions will add more interest to the quilt.


Here are my blocks so far. I haven't worked on them too much. I'm so close to finishing the machine quilting on the mystery quilt that I've been working on that as much as I can!  I have to get it done for the quilt show next month. I'm not used to working with a deadline! I'll be relieved when it's all finished. Pictures coming soon!! (I hope!!)

Here's the vintage quilt with the binding all attached! I can't believe this quilt is finished. It felt like a privilege to me ...
