Solid Scraps

I dreamt up this idea last month to use up some of my solid scraps.

I started with this:
My solids scrap bag
Which were then cut up and turned into this:
Little pieces
Which then became this:
Test block
And now it's grown into plans for a queen size quilt ... which means that despite the volume of solid scraps I had ... I don't have enough.

Enter a new order from Pink Chalk Fabrics ;-)
My first Solid FQ Collection purchase
4 yards (16 FQs) of fabulous color!  That should be enough to finish this up!

Given the length of time this is taking ... I'll give you an update in a few months ;-).

And it was a gorgeous day (finally) at the cabin today!

All the best
Lisa
