I picked up my book this weekend and was all set to cut into my stash. You see, recently I joined a Flickr swap of Tula Pink Layer Cake 10 inch squares and have received over 100 squares! Its about a 1 and 1/2 inch tall stack of Tula goodness.
But when I started looking at the blocks, I realized that they finish at 6 1/2 square. Most of the block pieces are sized 1 1/2 and 2 1/2. So being the type of person who saves every scrap, I knew that I would be able to use many scraps for these blocks.
I started going through the book and making blocks that matched up with the Tula and solid scraps that I had in my scrap box (uh....I mean boxes).
Finally, I started cutting into a few charm pack and layer cake pieces. I have made 20 blocks so far, and I haven't dented the stash.
This is block #1 from the book (that still needs to be squared). Right now, I am just putting the blocks together in a random color way. Block #2 somehow got turned around and I decided to leave it. Hey, it looks good to me.
I have thought some on the layout, but nothing definite yet. Here is a picture of the completed sampler quilt that I took at Quiltcon. I had no idea that someday I would be making it.
