Taking Care of The Necessary Evil

My retreat is in three days.  Weee,  Yippee, I'm giddy with excitement.  So this weekend I took care of the necessary evil, cutting.  I went through all my scrap bins and pulled out all my bright strips and put them in a little box.
So I can work on this project.  I was going to add a scrappy piano key border but have decided to make more spiderweb blocks instead and have no border.

Then I cut all the grey triangles, white sashing and a bunch of green and blue strips.

So I can hopefully finish up the blocks for this quilt.

Lastly I cut up some black scraps to make centers then cut down scraps to 1 1/2" strips so I would be ready to finish up a few more of these pineapple blocks.

So the icky part is out of the way and I'm ready to play! 


  1. You're going to have fun playing with those beauties. Have fun!

  2. Oh, the fun you'll have and blocks you'll make!!

  3. I like the Spider blocks without a border better too. The pineapples will look awesome. I love that pattern.

  4. WOW! You are the superwoman of scrap sewing. Great projects!

  5. Love the string quilt. I think you posted this quilt before and I loved it. I couldn't find it when I wanted to reference it, so this time I pinned it.
