Orange Crush and other scrappy quilts

My scap bins are full and I have boxes of precut squares in different sizes and some boxes of strips. I need to do something creativ and put my scraps to good use.
I started with my box of 2 inch squares and made blocks 5 by 5. Looking good? I thought so, but decided to add triangles to make the block on point. I love the result. Now I'm adding some applique. I'am looking forward to show you the result.


My scap bins are still full! What happened? Did I not just make an entire quilt out of scraps?

I need to make another!

Some temptations are hard to resist. This time it is the Orange Crush mystery by Bonnie Hunter. Looking at some of my favorit Norwegian bloggs the temptation got me. In that manner I am in good company! Sølvi did it, Inger did it, so did Oddbjørg, Sigrun, Elisabeth and many many more. I have done 1th step already! On monday I'll start 2nd step.


Hugs from Nancy

Her har det gått unna, ser jeg. Jeg hadde ikke så mye rester, og måtte ta i bruk andre stoffer jeg ikke hadde "behov for". Blir du å lage mønster på toalettmappene i innlegget nedenfor? Jeg er veldig interessert i å kjøpe det, og kommer snart nedover. Ha ei fin uke.

Så gøy at du er med!
jeg har sydd litt på blokkene i del 2 i dag, - tror jeg har "ryddet opp i rester", fått og kuttet til nok til del 2 nå... Fine farger!

Jeg tror ikke jeg kommer til å bli med på OC for jeg må først komme litt ajour med alle andre prosjekter som ligger her. Har en tendens til å hope seg opp.

Can't wait to see what you're doing with those 2" squares! I'm thinking of doing something similar with my scraps - they don't fit in their container anymore!

Isn't that the funny thing about fabric? I'll make something and think good, I've used up more fabric, but then it just seems like I have more! Have fun with the Orange Crush!

Dette ser spennende ut, og jeg tror at det aldri blir slutt på rester:-)).
