Scrappy Scrapalious

 I seems I've been working on this scrappy quilt top forever.  It has been a pretty long time, the month of March.  It's large, 88x88", and it's going on my bed when it's finished.  I started sorting scraps, and I had a mountain of them.  First, I removed all the solids, then all the really girly prints.

From the remaining scraps, some pieces were very small and netted one or two 2.5x5" strips, and some were large enough to cut many strips.  As I worked, at each stage, I kept shuffling the strips so the fabrics would be scattered across the quilt, as much as possible.  Working without a design wall, forces me to be creative in the assembly.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Before I decide on the quilt back, I want to work on the San Diego Modern Quilt Guild Vintage Quilt Revival QAL March and April blocks and the 2015 Mystery Quilt Along with Pat Sloan March and April blocks.

There's always something to do around here.  Since my husband passed away on January 27th, I seem to have less time for my two passions, quilting and reading.  Bob took up a lot slack around here, so I could indulge in quilting and reading.
May your bobbins always be full,
