Almost There

It feels like forever since I have been able to sew, really sew.  Well, maybe it just feels that way. Family life has been very busy, in a good way, but today I found myself with a little time. There were messes and piles everywhere in my sewing space. There is no way I can get anything done with the state it was in, so I thought I'd try and clean up a little.  Besides the many projects waiting for attention, look what I found. 

I started these blocks over a year ago when the Scrappy Trip Along was going on. For those of you who might not have heard of the Scrappy Trip Along, it was a Quilt Along started in early 2013 based on Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Quilt Tutorial

 This is the last time I remember these blocks. I had ten. 
I really wanted to make this quilt so I left the strips needed for the block, laying around.  
I thought I could make a block here and there. 
Well, now look where I'm at!  I had no idea! 

I found them in a pile and thought I would lay them out and have a look see. 
Gasp! I have 28! 
I need just two more for a nice 60 X 72 lap quilt. 
Yea, that's right just 2 more. : )

I used only scraps or fabric I've had a really long time.There are some really undesirable fabrics in there.  I threw caution to the wind and let some fabrics be friends and neighbors that probably shouldn't be.  I even just laid out the blocks as is and only moved one to another spot. This quilt is so fun to make and the blocks are addicting.  
I think I'm going to really love this one! You can see some

It's been awhile, but I'm linking up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday

Happy Stitching Everyone : )
