Just a quick post this week, because I haven't had much time to even cruise through Instagram, but I did play with scraps this week! Last Wednesday Lilli spent the day with me and one of the things we did was to sort through all my 5" squares.....
...to pull fabrics for a Plaid-ish quilt! Just in case you haven't seen this awesome quilt before, here's an example of a scrappy version...

Isn't that gorgeous? Well, after Lilli and I pulled all those fabrics, I decided that the least I could do was go ahead and cut the pieces to the correct sizes, so I got busy, and now I have...
...a kit all pulled together for my vacation sewing! It always amazes me how relatively little fabric it takes to make a quilt - that gallon zip loc bag holds enough to make a twin size quilt, and it barely made a dent in my 5" squares drawer. So I hope I like making this quilt, and can pull fabrics for another soon!
