The 2 1/2" strip scrap bin is still full .... as I have only added 3 more blocks. As soon as possible, I will pull out all of the long strips (brights only) and start matching them up into strip sets.
The Quilt Of Valor below that has taken over the sewing room, was loaded on the long arm, basted, then quilted. I used my pattern "Stars Over Scott", for a quick finish. Once the binding and label is done, it will be off to California for a young veteran, whose service we are so thankful for.
The "Stars Over Scott", uses 6" (finished) half square triangles, and measures 72" X 84" -- since I used larger HSTs, I omitted the borders. The great thing about this pattern, you can use any size HST you want to achieve the quilt size needed.
I follow along with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, who helps us stay accountable to the growing scrap bins. Check with her often for ideas on how to tame the stash.
