Scrappy

I got an urge to use up some scraps. I started with square in square but soon realized that those blocks need larger pieces and I want to use up little bits and long narrow strips. I then changed to Mile-a-Minute blocks. I love them because they are so quick and you can use all sorts of little scraps.  The blocks are 6 inches square.

mmmm, I love the fabrics you use! Square in a Square is one of my favorite blocks and now I remember why!

I'm not familiar with the Mile-a-Minute block, but I do love your quilt! ;-)

Hi Janet, Sorry I somehow missed your last post. The dog houses are great and the wall hanging too. This new quilt is coming along nicely. This is the kind of quilt that I am going to have to start soon as I have lots a bits of scrap fabric to use up.
