It's quite smoky here this morning, there is a large fire burning to the East of us. Far enough away to not worry about it, but the wind is blowing right toward us. Our logging site is up there... I hope the fire doesn't turn towards it.
I've been working on these blocks on and off all year. I'm not sure what they are called, and I can't seem to find the site I saw them on. I do recall noticing them on more than one blog, but I guess I didn't save a link to one, like I thought I did.
I had a stack of the white with gray fabric squares that had been cut 1/8" too small. And I had a pile of the bigger, yellow squares, that had been cut 1/4" too small.
I was happy that when I put 2 of the whitish blocks together (with 2 colored squares I cut), into a 4 patch, that 4 patch is the same size as the yellow squares :)
So I got out my square scrap box. It has lots of 2" squares, plus some 1 1/2", 3" and 3 1/2" squares in it, all ready to be used in a scrappy quilt. I took some colorful 2" squares and cut 1/8" off two sides, put them together with the whitish squares. Got some 3 1/2" squares and cut them down a 1/4", along with the yellow squares. I ran out of the whitish/gray squares and went thru my scraps finding white to cut up. And I had myself some fun :)
I mixed some floral prints in there and cut some more yellows, and now I'm laying the blocks out, figuring how I want it to look.
If anyone knows what this block is called, give a shout out in the comments please.
I'm going to set these aside now though, as I have to finish my youngest son's quilt. I don't have much more to do.
I'm linking up with Pat in the scrapatch again. Thank you Pat for your weekly link up. Have a great day everyone.
And thanks for stopping by,
