I think I started this quilt along (QAL) in April or May. Carole at My Carolina Home gave out one set of directions every month. As the months passed, my little “basket of parts” grew. The final reveal came out on Sept 9th, and it took me until tonight to “get round to it”. You see, after the Aug directions, I got distracted by Pat Sloan and her Happy Scrappy Little Wishes Stars Challenge! (more about that here: Scrap Happy Little Wishes Challenge )
Today I had a chance to print out the directions for the Scrap Dance QAL reveal and sit down to put the rows together to make 9 blocks.
The blocks are made, now I need to “arrange them” and get them assembled. This has been a fun process in “using my scraps”. I paid no attention to color, other than neutral or color, and as I was doing the various steps, I just “pulled” from the scrap bin. This project did require me to cut into some neutrals to make the half square triangles and have enough for the neutral blocks. I think I will like it better once I get a border on. How do I know? Well I peaked in on the Flickr group posts, and saw one that convinced me all is well. Check this out: Susan in Dublin’s version ‘s . I love hers. So, my goal is a 42×42 baby quilt. I do like the pattern and the way the neutrals make interesting pathways.
Thank you Carol at MyCarolinaHome for the pattern and the challenge to cut into the scraps. I can see using this pattern again!!

I will post a final picture when I get the top assembled and finished.
Happy stitching….ps…if you recognize your fabrics that you “gifted to me” in the form of scraps, leave me a comment! No yardage was injured in the pursuit of this scrap project….fat quarters for neutrals do NOT count. 🙂
