Oh Scrap! : Almost There

For almost a year, I have been digging through my Kaffe Fassett scraps for pieces large enough to complete my 8" bowtie blocks.  I have finally completed all from the scrap bin that I am able to.



I was able to finish a few more for the stack.

So I figured it must be time to take a count and see where I am at.  I have decided on a 10 x 11 layout so I need 110 blocks.  I have 83 finished blocks.



 So I have to pull 27 fabrics from my stash to finish the last of my blocks.  It was fun to pull out some of my favorites!  Now to get cutting so I can finish up these blocks :)

    What? Out of Kaffe scraps? Good thing you have such a healthy stash to draw from. This is going to be a gorgeous quilt.

    Awesome! I can’t imagine making 50 of 1 block, much less 110!!

    Jayne said...

    You are almost there! I can't wait. I bet it was fun to pick the final batch from your yardage stash though!

    We do hate to cut those pieces. Why not just cut the narrowest strip you can and save the fabric. It does deserve to be used for special projects.

    I love Kaffe fabric and I have made a quilt similar to the bow-tie blocks. I am sure it will be fun to find treasures in your stash. I am looking forward to rich, beautiful colors and an absolutely fabulous quilt.

    Kate said...

    Beautiful blocks! Kaffe's fabrics are so rich and colorful, it's going to be a beautiful quilt.

    Sandy said...

    I have never really cared for bowtie blocks before, but that setting makes me think I might try some!

    Mystic Quilter said...

    You're nearly all finished up with your beautiful Bowtie blocks, I'm looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.
