 Not much sewing going on around here this week.  I did get some time to work on these blocks that I started when at Happy Scrappers at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  I think I'll make four more blocks, apply a border and quilt it.  It is a great way to use up my scraps.
This is a closeup of the block.  Each square in the block is 2 1/2 inches.  I think the most time consuming was going through my scraps and cutting the squares.  You can read more about this block (name and where to find the pattern) by going here.

    I love your scrappy quilt. Splashes of color with white is always a winner for me.
