Block exchange!



 Last week Katy posted on flickr that she was looking to trade some fat quarters for blocks for a new scrap vomit/technicolor yawn quilt she is making, so I whipped these out this weekend. She made one not too long ago that I love. I realized that I do love simple patchwork blocks, and I may have to make a bunch more of these soon for me.  I have too many scraps and this would be a great scrap buster quilt!  It is the cutting of all the 2.5 inch squares that may put this one on hold until summer.:)



I hope you are all having a good start to your week!

Oy. 2.5" blocks? Oy.
Have you tried a paper punch? Or an Ellison die cutting machine? I think you have to put paper on either side of the fabric, but it's worth a shot!
Good luck with that! :)

do you have a local quilt shop? The shop I work at has a die cutter. you can come in pay a few bucks and whip the 2.5" blocks out in no time.

What a great way to use up scraps! Love the effect of all the colors/patterns!

Just saw on your profile that you are from Colorado! CO is home and we are finely moving back after an 10 year absence! Can't wait! We'll be just north of Monument... any good quilting stores I need to visit?

Scrap vomit? That's quite a visual. :)

You are my scrappy inspiration! I feel like I need to do a few more quilts to have enough scraps to do anything.
