Plan C

My leaders and enders sewing has resulted in a lot of little blocks representing a small part of what's living in my scrap box:



Recognize the 20-patches made from 1.5" squares? Something will come of them before too long, I hope! And the bag of blues I have some vague plans of using with my scrappy stars... I have no plans for the green and cream four patches yet, and those multi-coloured four patches...



Ten blocks in each of those piles... In my eager reading of the Schnibbles book I saw the squares in the Plan C quilt were cut 2" - the same as the pieces in those four patces - quilt nearly half done! So I started cutting: the white came from stash and the pieces for the star points came from the larger pieces in my scrap box. After a few hours playing with Bernie we have this:



My first official Schnibble! I changed the border, though. In the original there's a piano key border with four patches in the corners, but I wanted to save myself some cutting. Turned out pretty good :o) So much fun playing with scraps!! What to do with the rest of them? More Schnibbles?

Have a lovely weekend!

Oy sann - her var det jammen dukket opp mye lekkert siden sist jeg var innom. Så mange flotte småquilter. Og "løperveska" di ble jo bare så flott. Artig å se at det er flere som koser seg med smårestene. Jeg fant forresten ett lekkert teppe med slike 4-patcher du har sydd i ei bok jeg nettopp kjøpte, der var blokkene avslutta med en rad "corthous-step" i naturfarvet, før det hele var sydd sammen med annenhvert blokk og annenhver bit helt stoff i noe mønstrete. Den holder jeg på med nå, men tror ikke jeg har lagt ut noen bilder enda.
