Still working my way through a caZillion HST. Making one of each from this Chart of HST blocks. At some point they'll become quilt tops. LOL In this case I've numbered each block to match a number I've drawn on the chart. Most of the blocks have the same fabric. But if I don't have enough I'll substitute something very similar. Most will never notice in the finished quilt. Middle Lime green and top row middle pink blocks are examples of this. 42 blocks made to date. The Heart block I found somewhere else, but makes a nice block as well.
I manage my scraps as I go along or receive them in grocery bags. So I always have squares and HST of various sizes available in bins. This is a fun little "no plan" project and I'm slowly using up some of the 3.5" HST.
and this Ladies, is how I stay out of Jail..... keeping busy with my sewing. LOL
HAPPY AUGUST 10 to each of you.

Oh, dear! I'm giving up on quilting and relying on jigsaw puzzles to keep me out of jail.
Do you suppose it will be as effective?
Absolutely! They are also very effective..
Thankfully we're "Marked Safe" for now.. LOL
WooHoo! Today I can post! I like your dillyflowers. The rounded edge gives them a softer look than the hexies. Looking forward to seeing your scrappy quilt.
Your quilt is beautiful(as are they all). Great idea to make it your own and add the groom. Watching 2 kids, I don't know how you get any quilting done. By evening, I'd collapse in a chair and not move until time for bed. Sorry you and Rick have COVID. Hope you recover soon. I've had several friends with COVID lately, but, knock on wood, I haven't had it yet. Adding you both to my prayer list.
Somewhere I have an unfinished Drunkard's Path quilt. I must find it and finish it. I like your oriental block. Wouldn't have thought of that.
The raven is fun too. Like a log cabin, drunkard's path blocks can go together many ways. Have fun creating.
Nice quilting design. I'm sure your quilts will be a great addition to the country store. Some kids will enjoy them. Machine binding will go fast. I just recently started doing it on my charity quilts. I'm getting better at it.
That will be a great quilt. So what size are these blocks finishing? Seems like this should make a good size quilt.
I've a couple charity quilts to finish. Then I'll post pictures. I've been making bags to be filled with needed items for the homeless. They take quite a while to do for as simple as they are but they are sturdy and will hopefully hold up. I've finished the ones I have promised, so back to quilts. Here's a picture of 2 of them. We had donated fabric to work with.
Unfinished at 12.5" and Finish at 12" in a quilt. But one could use whatever size you want. Smaller for say a baby quilt.. or using even larger HST to make it bigger, and faster too.
I make HST, 2 & 4 Patches as leader/enders so I always have blocks made to work with when I don't want to think to hard. LOL
