    I cut these out last night and I put together a few last night and some of them today. I still have a bunch of the medium ones to do but the little ones are all done and the big ones I just finished to this point. There are more than what is showing on the blue wall.

    large ones

    They look wonderful! Love the 3 sizes! They are sew much fun and it is hard to stop once you get to the sewing part! Luv 'em!

    Are they all going into the same piece, or are they for different projects?

    I am not sure yet what they will turn into yet, I thought the little ones would go into a mini, they were accidental, I didn't want put the two end pieces into the scrap pile as they were so nicely stacked still. I was more trying this type of block. after seeing the blocks I was thinking of putting one in the center putting a border on and then put the other ones on and then of course a border. I am attaching the original fabric as well

    That looks like a lot of fun.
    Still waiting for LQS to get a copy of One Block Wonders in so I can start on one, too!
    In the meantime, I will just admire your work.
    Good job!

    Those look wonderful! I never thought of saving the little ends, what a great idea! It's going to be gorgeous. I like the colors that are coming out of it. Kind of reminds me of berries in cream.

    and finish sewing them all together,

    Today was an interesting day. I learned a lot, like don't be so nuts to try and use such small pieces, they left more fabric on the back that there is on the front. With any luck the bigger ones will go together quicker as I already learned a little what not to do and what to do. Borders and then it is set to get quilted.

    I recommend that you try it Beachlady, it was a lot of fun. Though I have more blocks to use up.

    The borders are done and now it is waiting to be quilted. It will go in the pile with all the others waiting.

    Someone in chat thought there was a lot of waste in this, this is how much I have left of the piece that I used.
