    Thank you, carrot! Your quilt is beautiful. Here's the link to my reversible quilt that shows the quilt-as-you-go sashing from Ditter's tutorial, on this board, just in case that might work for someone else. http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t192134.html

    well scrappers we didn't get enough to do the 2.5 squares swap but there is one going on on the QB if you'd like to join. They could use some more swappers to make their swap a better one.

    Here's a pic of my latest scrap project. Just spent 4 days at our shack and I managed to finish the blocks and piece all 108 of them together. There is still a row of 12 blocks to go on the bottom.

    This is for a large display area at my quilt show and I am not sure whether or not I will quilt it behforehand or just back it with a sheet for now and maybe later I will unpick halfway and make two larger lap quilts - undecided just now. Glad it is done though and it looks so good hanging on the shack verandah. Used up quite a lot of my scraps too.

    Linnie that is an amazing quilt. What does the block look like and how do you make it? I can't believe you did all of that in four days at the fishing shack. Enjoying summer?

    Wow Lynn-that looks huge! Did you use one fabric for the neutrals or are they scrap fabrics, too?

    The blocks are 6" x 9" sectioned into 1" strips. I sewed all the neutral scraps to coloured scraps first, so it is a great way to use smaller coloured scraps with longer neutral strips and vice versa. Put them into piles based on colour, picked 9 different ones and sewed to the foundation base.

    I actually sewed this quilt over a 10 day period over 2 trips to our shack. Just starting to get some lovely summery weather, sunny days and no wind - wonderful !

    Hmmm are you saying that one colored and one neutral strips are sewn end to end and then sewn onto a 6"x9" foundation like paper or fabric? Where all strips about 1 1/2" wide when you sewed them together?

    Summer sounds wonderful. We do not get much winter weather here, 76 out side right now, but I still prefer summer.

    That's exactly right. Strips were about 2" wide or thereabouts depending on scraps. I roughly sewed the strips so I would have different heights in each block. It was a real fun scrappy to do and I have a heap more scraps I could use, using light colours instead of neutrals.

    Lynnie it is definitely a quilt that has to go on my to do list. I own so many scraps and I really like the look and feel of this one. Like wanabquilter, I see a book case. It looks both like a fun and modern quilt. Any idea on how you plan to quilt it?
