Thank you, Annaquilts, for the complement! It's always nice to be appreciated for doing something for someone else. You are going to be a Boomer for sure.

Exquisite blocks, Rebaquilts! Love what you did with the black and orange. You had to have used every single thread of that orange. Well done.

Love it Libster. Perfect!

Rebaquilts, love your blocks! The chicken is really adorable but the sugar skull is inspired. Wow.

Next time you post blocks, please name the person you’re making them for. It helps me when I start moving pix around, especially early on when I don’t have everyone’s fabric memorized yet. Thank you.

Spent the weekend cutting up scraps. I've got them all cut for the BH quilt that Janice posted (154 sets of dark/light and 154 sets of light/dark ready to sew. That is the first picture, I've got paper between the sets so they don't get mixed.

Second is a tote of "strings" for another project, along with the "Aunt Dorthy" quilt along I'm following. Other than all the neutrals, I ran of out of pieces to cut before I ran out of scraps, but not by much! I did cut up a bunch of 2" and 2.5" triangles, along with a whole bunch more 2.5" squares. They blocks under the baggies of triangles is what I'm going to use the strings for. I had made a set of these blocks for a swap, and liked it so much I've always wanted to make a set for myself.

My package should arrive tomorrow - looking forward to paying with all the pretty fabric.

Default BH quilt and one more

Macybaby good for you to get so much cut, that BH pattern really is great. Im thinking of going on her Morocco or Ireland trip. Sorry I didnt post who the blocks were for, the sugar skull black/orange is for Hav4boys (and I used every teensy scrap of that orange&#129505, the Christmas wreath is for Terriamn, and the chicken is for Annaquilts. Here is my first one for GramE, the pastel teapot. My daughter Dylan liked it so much she asked me to add a row to her row-by-row round robin from this last few months, so I made her a teapot in her orange and green. She picked out the Japanese fabrics for hers. Hugs!!!
