So I went with hst then thought it needed more oomph. I was browsing a magazine I recently received and there it was- a scrappy quilt with the blocks starting out with what I had sitting on the counter. Cool beans! So I started and realized, because of changing my mind 2 or 3 times with this quilt, I did not have enough fabric of the original fat quarters, so I pulled out the drawer of fat quarters and found more.

I used white from my stash- there are 3 or 4 white on whites. The back is a piece of fabric I was saving for my 30s repro to be made in the future, but it matched nicely so I used it.

So I still have some scraps and 22 hearts I can applique at some time in the future (started saving my used dryer sheets so I can do the tute).

I think it turned out pretty nice and not difficult to do at all. I think my Mom will like it. It feels good too! I want to keep it, but I know she'll use it!
