It's been a while since I wrote a post for Scrappy Wednesday! It's just been so busy, and I didn't really have anything special to share - but I've joined in the Me Sew Happy quilt-along and now I do!
Way back in February, this gorgeous quilt caught my eye on Instagram. Imagine my excitement when I found out there was going to be a quilt-along! So when it opened up on April 1st, I ordered my pattern and started digging through my scraps.
Look at all those beautiful bright fabrics! I was fortunate enough to have a BUNCH of squares already pre-cut to 2.5", so I sorted through them until I found enough to make these four blocks....
For a week, these pretties graced my design wall all by themselves. Then it was time for the second block - a bit quicker this time, made even quicker by the fact that I also had 5" squares pre-cut in my scrap stash. With a few minutes of trimming down to the right size, I had exactly what I needed for these blocks.
These worked up really quickly this morning - chain piecing is the bomb! And now my design wall looks like this...
It's only half of the blocks for this quilt - there are still two sizes of hourglass blocks to make - but you can already see just how bright and cheerful it's going to be!
And now I wonder what it would look like in low volume fabrics.....
