From full to finished...almost!

I've spent the last two days cutting scraps into strips and sewing those strips into wide strips.


And then what did I do? Cut the wide strips into blocks, of course. I've been meaning to make a strip quilt using scraps, which (let's face it) I have plenty of. Out came the green scrap bucket and I cut strips of 2½", 2", and 1½". 


This is what the green bucket looks like now. I forgot to take a before picture, but the yellow bucket is a good example of what it looked like.

  
 I tossed a few of those yellow scraps into the quilt, and the quilt found it's name:


X's and O's.

And a project is well on its way to the longarm. Hopefully they will begin their visit tomorrow.

Great use of your scraps. I think strip quilts look great!
