FROM SCRAPS TO QUILTS...

Let's start with these pieces:

and turn them into these blocks:
I was inspired by the Yoyoville Quilt designed by Bunny Hill Patterns.  But, as many of you know, I just finished a large Yo-Yo quilt and I'm a little tired of making yo-yo's!  So, I thought I would adapt the pattern with appliqued circles.  This may take a while! I'd like to make this one for my bed so the finished size would be 81" X 93".  Now this may sound staggering but here are the stats: for 837 blocks set 27 X 31.  I will need to cut 419 circles,  419 background squares for the circles, 838 dark squares and 838 background squares for blocks that measure 3" X 3".  This is my current bed quilt...
and I love it dearly.  I'm just ready for a change.  You might have guessed I love to do scrap quilts.  I thank the gods for charm packs and fat quarters!!

Very sweet. Reminds me somewhat of a hobo quilt pattern! Just love the colors.
