flimsy fling

proof that the stash IS getting used up is this flimsy that got flung to charity just this week....nearly all those scrappy 9-patch blocks have found a home...

in september 2 lap robes were made with these blocks and this month's is a 72x78 flimsy.  so happy that they are no longer stuck in an elfa drawer.   this was a leader/ender project long ago and wish i could say the 2.5" square shoebox was empty but not quite.   the 2.5" strips shoebox is overflowing so i'm pulling from that for the 365 blocks, which won't make a dent obviously.   but there is progress busting stash that is downright fun and rewarding.  and a button i recently found at a local quilt shop says it all....


  1. Wonderful scrap creation.
    That is the kind of quilt I keep telling myself I need to be doing as a leader/ender, but it doesn't seem to happen. I am far too easily distracted!

  2. Wonderful what you created just from leftovers--also nice to know that donating tops is a way to help especially when you don't enjoy the quilting as much as piecing.

  3. I do love scrappy, still want to get my scraps cut up according to Bonnie's guidelines, just need to get started.
