I've been busy using some scrap 2 1/2 inch strips. I made blocks, using Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trips pattern. The blue borders are made from a piece of fabric that didn't make the final cut in my Storm at Sea quilt, and I also used more of the braid strips that I made as "leaders and enders" all last year.
When I was quilting with my community quilts group up north last spring, I found these "blue dog" blocks that had been cut from a panel, and then left behind. I pulled some fabric from my small stash to turn them into two baby quilts.
The four square blocks needed 4 smaller pieced blocks to complete the top.
The six smaller, rectangular pieces were just sewn together, and then I added a "zipper" border, made from 2 fabrics.
Now I just have to find time to get all three pin-basted, so I can complete them.
