I just loved doing the give-away I posted about yesterday, it was such fun to see who might be reading my blog and visiting all your blogs back! ...and the winner drawn from a bowl of tiny slips with each name written on it is: MARCIE at PATCH-ALOT!! She has a most wonderful blog...for a extra special treat, you should go for a visit... just click here. Thank you so much, each one of you for entering...it was fun! Let's do it again!! Hancock Fabric Store closed in our area, and I bought a bunch of block kits...I bought these long ago at the fabric store, and had high hopes of making something of them. It has been, ahem, a couple years...so maybe you can enjoy them, because I am obviously not getting anything done with them! They are not all the blocks in the series, and there are duplicates of blocks, but the fabric is all there. Just not block 1, block 2, block 3...instead there might be 3 of block 1, 2 of block 6, etc. But all the fabric of there, and if you are imaginative and can or would like to make something of these, just leave me a comment and you will be entered. The fabric colors are a pink, a polka dot tan, and two tone on tones, one light, one dark. Drawing tomorrow, at 9 AM!
What a mess! But really, it is a good thing. I have been diligently cutting up all my scraps into usable units, like 1.5 inches, 2 inches, 2.5 inches, 3 inches and so on...strips and squares. The messy bin above is my 2 inch bin. There are both strips and squares in this one. Well....I decided for some fun and just mindless sewing, I would make 4 patches out of these squares. I made...one zillion 4 patches! Really, over 500. And I still have so many squares left! Anyway, below is...
a few of the block laid out. SCRAPPY! I love it! I think I may put an alternate square of blue and make a scrappy happy quilt. What do you think?
Thank you so much, and each one of you please have a fabulous day!!
