And here's my 1880's Sampler block for last week. It's called Grain Mill
Last but not least, I finished two Dutch Treat blocks last night.
There is quite a bit of waste making the Dutch Treat blocks since the blocks are initially cut 6" and then trimmed to 4 1/2" after the applique is done. You need the extra 1 1/2" to have something to hold onto. Of course you know me..I don't throw anything out. So I have plastic bins filled with these scraps from both of the Dutch Treat quilts I've made to date. I intend to do some sort of string piecing with them.
Today I decided that maybe if I make myself sit down and piece these as I make each block and trim it, then when I'm done making my Dutch Treat I'll be close to having another quilt of some kind made.
So here are the scraps so far.
I have several ideas of what I might do with these. How about you?
