My scrap box was getting really full and completely chaotic again, so I decided to try to tidy it up a bit by cutting 1.5" squares and strips from a pile of light scraps, a pile of dark bits and pieces, and whatever I could find of reds/burgundy/dark orange
A lot of cuts later I had a manageable number of strips and squares, a lot of bits in the garbage, and a scrap box that is a whole bit tidier. A lot of more cuts, and you can find this on my large square ruler
All ready to be sewn into some lovely scrappy chimneys and cornerstone blocks. Unless I have counted wrong here and there (which is a fair chance *lol*) it should be all the pieces for the quilt "Lucinda's Gift" from this fabulous book
We are doing this as a quilt-along on the SBS-and-other-Elm-Creek-Quilts yahoo group. If you have got the book and want to join in, the quilt-along starts on July 1st - and the first week is cutting the pieces so I'm a tad ahead of schedule.
Hugs and stitches from Anne Ida
