Design Wall Monday 5/30/11

Yesterday, I finished the fourth charity quilt, but I'll talk about that tomorrow for Fabric Tuesday.  I was going to pull out my ufo I'm suppose to finish, then decided I really had to clean up my cutting/design wall area before it toppled over.  Well, got that done and wound up with a pile of scraps I found at the left side of the table. I should have taken a picture of it - it was so bad - but here it is CLEAN.  I may print out this photo to remind myself this can happen - LOL.  So once I'd folded and put away the fabric pieces - darn, the stash doesn't look so lean any more - I found myself with this pile of scraps.  Got out my ruler and before I knew it, I had piles of 2" , 2 1/2", 3", 3 1/2" 4 and 5" pieces.  Put those away and all I had left were the odd ones out.  I then decided to make them into crumb blocks instead of stuffing them in the scrap box. Came out with 16 crumb blocks ala Bonnie Hunter.                                                            
I'm happy to report this is all I have left - not enough to make a block - yeah!  I don't mind adding these to the scrap heap.
Go on over to Judy's Patchwork Times - her button is on the left sidebar and see what others are doing.

I love those little blocks. They look so bright and happy. I tried doing that once and gave up because it felt like never ending. Did you put a lining underneath the little blocks? I need to also clean up my work table. Right now it's got jewelry stuff on it and I'm really feeling the quilting itch again. I really need two tables.
