Getting there ...

Here's where I got up to last night putting the rows together of my 'Galaxy of Scraps' quilt. Thank you for helping me be sure about my setting triangles. I'm glad I didn't go with the more plain fabric - I wouldn't have been happy with it in the end.

I have three more rows to go, and then I'll call the top done. If I get the opportunity, I'd like to put the back of the Sunbonnet Sue quilt together this morning before I head out for my lunch date today. Maybe I should do it first ...

But back to the scraps - isn't it amazing how far our scraps go ... I still have sooooo many 2.5" squares. I've had to stop cutting them for the time being, and I'm concentrating on 2" and 3.5" at the moment. I have 1.5" too ... but I don't use them as much ... but seeing Bonnie's trees ... Ohhh - what would I give for a few more hours in the day :-)

The different setting material was definitely a good idea, it's looking wonderful now. The scraps are scary if you think about them,they do go a long way and you never get rid of the ghastly ones. The checkerboard blocks are a good way to use them up, great mindless sewing too.
We'll be having the show again in two years, and we'll make sure you get up here. Keryn and I will be at the show next month, so we'll have to meet each other there- we'll be at the Gammill stand again.

It looks beautiful. You certainly get more done in a day than I do.
I'm afraid to use too many of my scraps, because it took me a while to collect them and I'm afraid I'll use them all, but from reading from you and others, I think that I should just take the plunge.

The quilt looks beautiful and those setting triangles were a great idea. I love Bonnie's trees, too. Meant to cut some squares this weekend for a leader/ender project, but never found the time. Have a good week!
