I don't know how many of these mini Trip Around the World blocks I've made since last month but here are the newest six:
I need one more in order to make a 60" square quilt. I may not stop there though. Maybe I'll make 20 blocks for a 60" x 75" quilt. As there's no specific destination or purpose for this project yet we'll just have to wait and see. 😉
One day last week I went through the box I keep near the cutting table into which I put offcuts and remnant pieces. I managed to cut quite a few scrap patches that day. So far I've made these blocks from that cutting session:
These have been built between the seams of other projects I've worked on:
Those flying geese units have not been sewn together, they're just loose 3" x 6" (finished) units at this point.
The Eve quilt (see previous post) has been set aside for the time being as I work on one of those secret projects that come up at this time of the year. It's a pretty controlled quilt, which is making me want very much to break out and make a wild and crazy scrap quilt. Maybe for Scrap Happy Day in December I'll have put together a quilt top out of the Parts Department. 😀
Here are links to others who may or may not have a blog post up featuring their use of scrap materials. If you'd like to participate just leave a comment on Kate or Gun's blog.
