15 done

A seam or two here and there and I am up to 15 completed blocks. Lots of cutting and pressing with this block. The only good thing is I am using up a lot of small scraps and yet I am still finding more to use up. Maybe in the next century I will have all the fabric used. LOL It got down to almost freezing temps today. After 80 degree plus days and back to using the furnace. I haven't put my snow shovel away yet. I am trying to get it to not snow by leaving it out.
I am still using up odds and ends of neutral threads on this piecing. I think I have emptied almost 13 spools of thread for my bobbin threads. Utility quilts are meant to be odds and ends. But if the over all look is great and it is all nicely done some of the best looking quilts in my opinion are scrappy. But who am I. Chris

Chris, I agree - I love scrappy quilts. I've been trying to decide what to do with the smaller pieces of fabric I have. I've been a few fat quarter swaps and have quite of few of those - yet I rarely use FQ's.... I also have small cuts of fabric left over from other projects. I know a lot of quilters will cut leftovers into pieces per Bonnie Hunter method, I've never been able to bring myself to do that... But it's time to clean out the clutter and I like your blocks, so might be a way to go for me.
