I love making scrap quilts with random blocks placed throughout the quilt. I meant to start this journey in 2014 as a scrap club yearlong project but life got in the way of my following through. I recently saw new quilt alongs starting up in March so I thought I get my quilt going as well.
As I began piecing the sections, I could feel the addiction growing stronger and stronger. It was fast becoming the only project that I wanted to work on. The addiction won and I made five sections within 24 hours and want to share them with you.
SECTION #1: I used 5 orphan blocks. Also, I am using the same fabric strip in the vertical construction of this quilt. It will become more obvious as I complete the sections.
SECTION #2: I used 6 orphan blocks.
SECTION 1 & 2 COMBINED:
SECTION 3: I used 4 orphan blocks.
SECTION 4: I used 2 orphan blocks
SECTION 1-4 COMBINED:
SECTION 5: I used 7 orphan blocks.
SECTION 1-5 COMBINED:
Although I wish I could work on this quilt further, I have to put it aside to work on uploading some of my recent finished projects, scrap quilting club show-n-tell, work of some yearlong projects, make binding for three quilts, and prepare a few income taxes for my family. I am sadden that I had to put Ms. Gypsy up for a little while. I'm hoping to be able to publish section 6 within a week otherwise I'll give an update in a blog post.
