2017 is coming to and end and so is my Scrappy Block Project 2017. My goal was to make at least 2 blocks a month for a year. I ended up with 30!
Other than using scraps and left over components of quilt blocks, I really didn't initially have a plan for these 12 inch blocks. As time went on, I started putting an animal or other feature fabric somewhere in each block. Some months I also added plain white blocks which I really liked. I wish I had done that more consistently. In this busy quilt, those white patches offer a resting place for the eyes.
At 5 block wide and 6 blocks long, quilt will be long enough but I want it a bit wider. I found some orphan blocks from a project that just didn't work and there are enough blocks to add sashings between the vertical rows. The orphan are a bit bold, but I like them! I'll post a photo of the completed quilt sometime in 2018!
So that wraps of this year long project. And what happens when a project is done? A party of course!! (Though I had to do some canine management to prevent the party from starting before I had all the photos I needed for this post)!
Happy New Year!!
