Quilting makes me happy!

I was unable to keep up with the other quilters at the mini-retreat (we went home to our own homes at night). Lots of people stayed until 10:00 pm or more each night. Me…I left about dinnertime, and in lots of pain with that. So I am not close to having the quilt top done because I ran out of the fabric in the center of each square. I love this pattern, but it does involve scraps…lots of scraps…enough that I am going through the scraps to see if I have little pieces that will fit #5 in the pattern from the square I used to sew it on in the first place.
Wow that looks weird! This is how the back looks:
But then you trim it off.
The trimmed back looks good, but the front is even better:
Put 4 blocks together with the red in the middle with 1-1/4 inch strips between each 1/4 block and you get these:
Or I will save them for Ally and friends to make wonderful art such as this:
Okay back to sorting fabric while running out to change the hoses watering my garden.
