I forgot to post the stats on the low volume quilt. I used 3" strips to make 5 1/2" blocks. The quilt ended up being 50 3/8" x 45 3/8". I already have a baby in mind for this quilt. The last baby this lady had I gave her a bright orange quilt and the kid is a handful! I told her for this one I would give her this low volume quilt and maybe the kid will be calmer!
I was really tired last evening so I did not get a lot done on the linen quilt, but here is the latest view of it. I added two more striped units - one on either side of the one that was already pieced.
The pile of scraps continues to dwindle. The only pieces I have thrown away are 3/4" wide or less. I still need enough to fill in the spot on ther right side in the middle. I took some of the pieces and used them elsewhere.
I saw momma duck yesterday. Here she is getting ready to crawl into the bushes to sit on the nest. I keep watching to see her leave so I can go take a peek.
