    I put in a bid on e-bay for a lot of over1,200 assorted blocks. (I was the first bidder and only bid the min. with over 3 1/2 hours left) Never for a sec thought I'd win, so was a total surprise when I did!!! Here is what I ended up getting!

    Def. a scrappy quilt from the blocks. There may even be enough for two! What it doesn't show is that I sorted them by color and all have several of the same underneath them. There are roughly 85 6x6; 225 5x5; 190 4x4; 360 3x3; 400 + 2x2
    I haven't actually counted them all yet, but I'd say that's pretty accurate.

    Thinking of PIFing the handmades and scraps since I don't really do anything with those. (scraps would be good for a string quilt. It's still smaller than what I like to work with)

    The pinwheels are beautiful. I had bought some myself here at a second hand shop and am unsure what to do with them, i don't have enough to make a quilt with. I hate the thought of disposing of someone elses hard work! Please let me know what you do with yours. I will be watching. Thank you for your time.
