look what I just made!

I decided to make some scrappy quilts and use up some of my quilting fabric stash. I have a lot of fabrics in there that I don't really love any more, so I'm going to make some charity quilts. I don't know exactly what organization they will go to yet, or even how long it will be until I finish them, but it felt good to get this part done:



I cut 6.5" squares when I could, and the fabric that was not big enough for squares, I cut into rectangles that were 6.5" on 2 sides so I could still use them in the rows between the squares. Something happened with my planned/random look while I was sewing the rows together and I don't think it looks quite right between rows 3 and 4 but, oh well, it'll do.

Sometimes it's really satisfying to make up a quick project that hasn't been planned out for weeks or months.
