An advantage to retirement, I can participate in a Quilt-along in addition to sewing my own designs .... sometimes more than one. I always have a leader/ender scrap quilt going, however some of the scraps are starting to overflow. I keep them in several 20-quart plastic bins by color and/or type.
About half of the batik scraps are now pressed to get started. I pulled a piece of greenish/ gray yardage for the spools and very quickly, the first 8 blocks are done.

Thanks to EQ, Electric Quilt, alternate color layouts include one for Mardi Gras .... which also happens to be in February this year.
How about St. Patrick's Day?
