    scrappy square in square in square blocks

    Well, I started to make the backing for my hippie love beads stack and whack that I posted a picture of last week. I had quite a bit of the sashing and setting fabrics leftover, and a bunch of little stacked squares from the stack and whack, so I decided to piece a few blocks to use on the backing. I was having such a good time making these blocks that I've ended up with enough to make another quilt top. That's a good thing, right? Still don't have the backing put together yet, maybe tonight!

    So are you using the blocks for the back of the first quilt or making a new quilt top out of them? They are way cute. Peggy
    Happy quilting to all of my new friends on the quilting board http://pastimesquiltdesign.blogspot.com

    I've made enough to do both, I had intended to make 8 pieced 10" blocks to intersperse with 10" squares for the pieced backing. I now have a total of 30 pieced blocks, so I should have enough to make both, and I do believe I'll turn out a few more before I'm done. I still have a little pile of scraps and 2" 4 patch blocks.

    I love your blocks! How wonderful to make another top and still more scraps to go! I will have to rethink my leftover scraps instead of just bagging them!

    Lucky you! With the fabric you bought for your Stack 'n Whack you got a two-fer! Isn't it great fun to create something extra with scraps! Love what you came up with. I absolutely love to work with scraps and so does my wallet! lol Thanks for sharing.

    You have been busy. I've been thinking about doing a scrappy like this. It goes on my list. Need to finish some UFO's first.

    Very nice, good way to use up scraps. I'm still trying to use up scraps from previous quilts.

    That's going to be a fun top! Yes, a good thing! I like that it's not all the same square in a square in a square. With the scrappy look, this is perfectly mixed! Great job!

    I do this all the time. That's why I have so many quilt tops, and not so many completed quilts. Yours is very pretty.
