I have been cutting 2.5" squares and making 2.5" HST from my scraps for a long time. I was tired of making four patches and star blocks so I decided to make Shoo fly blocks. The project ended up being dominated by sea gull fabric, as that was my last addition into the scrap box - the long skinny scraps after trimming a quilt, the sea gull fabric was the backing.
There was one lonely different sea gull print in the bottom of my scrap box that was begging to join this quilt.
I am delighted with the end result. A coordinated collection of scrap red, teal, green, yellow and blue fabrics have found a worthwhile home.
Which will make another lovely kids cot size donation quilt.
Happy quilting Sue.
