Scrap Block

Yesterday I suggegsted that I had a couple of things I was drawn to work on, and I didn't know which one I would be drawn to. Well, it ended up being the scrap block I had wanted to try. I showed you the contents of some of my scrap boxes the other day (and I must mention that I didn't achieve ALL that cutting that day - the boxes already had a lot of scrappage in them) and my 2.5" scrap bin is by far the most full, so I decided to do something to use them up.

I have always loved the Road to California block, and since I travelled to California last year, thought it would be an appropriate block to make up into a quilt. So how fun to make up four blocks - just enough to see how I could play around with them and get patterns to emerge. It's my feeling that this will be a kind of leader and ender project for me, but having said that, it's possible I'll get hooked on them and want to work on them all the time. I know that whatever I decide to do ... it will be superfun!

On another note, a big thank you to our Computerpeach Kim for fixing up my ring code for me, and also satisfying my anal side by getting the gaps between my quilt rings and graphics all the same ... Ohhh gosh, I think I need therapy!

I have tried the Leader Ender idea also - it makes lots of sense. But like you, once I'm on a roll with something I don't want to stop. Then I get sick of it, put it away and work on something else. It is one big cycle. I like the square in the centre.
