Lovin' It

I have been putting a dent in my red scraps and this is what I have to show so far. I must be a slow sewer because this does not seem like a lot. But it takes me a while to get these bitty pieces cut and then sewn together. The strips in the hearts finish at 1/2" and I know Nanette's scrappy hearts called for 2 1/2" squares but I wanted my hearts to be smaller when finished so mine are 1 1/2" squares. But oh do I love these great hearts. They are going to be great hanging on my wall.
Here is another one in the works. And I have more squares cut to make a few more. I have also been working on another improve block. Here are the two I have done.
And here are my blocks from the Friday Block Party. I am using my pastel, bright scraps for these blocks. I really am trying to put a dent in my overflowing scrap bag.

So here are all my recent projects on my wonderful, new design wall. Thanks to hubby and boys. Everything on this wall has come from the scrap bag. Little by little we will use up those precious pieces of fabric.
Have a great weekend!!!
Em
