Scrap Happy in March

As per usual, I've sewn up some scrap blocks inbetween work on other projects.

There are 8" Butterfly blocks surrounding a couple of 12" Lego blocks. There's also one 8" postage stamp star off to the left. 

But wait! There's more! I pulled out the scrappy medallion I started way back in August of 2021. So far I've only added another round to it but I think I know what will come next. 

August 2021:

It sort of looks like an overgrown placemat at this stage. It was about 20" high and 26" wide. I had some Chinese Coins units and strips leftover from building this quilt top...

Which is now in the queue to be quilted. There were just about enough to make it all the way around the medallion. I only had to add a few strips from my stash (and substituted some of my own for duplicates in the original pile). 

Now it's about 32" high and 38" wide. I believe I can surround this with stars and then maybe a whole cloth border. That should bring it up to a good size for a child or a lap quilt. That's not going to happen before this post needs to go live however. 😊 ScrapHappyDay is the 15th of each month, wherever you happen to be in the world. It's hosted by Kate and Gun, whose links are below along with all the other fairly regular participants. This month we welcome Viv to the group and look forward to seeing what she's been doing with her scrap materials!

  1. It's looking like a truly scrappy quilt so far! I've dug out some orphan blocks from about 4 years ago, wondering what to make with them. You've given me some ideas!

  2. Great idea for a scrappy medallion quilt!

  3. I love the scrap quilts. You really have a knack for colors!
