|Block #3 Flock!|
I am having a wonderful time rifling through my scrap bins and using up squares and strips from other projects to make my blocks! I am aiming for having a rainbow of blocks with a salad of low volume fabrics for the backgrounds, borders and likely for the sashing as well.

It's exciting see this take shape week by week and to be whittling away at my scraps. A block a week means that this is a very manageable pace for a quilt, allowing for me to work on other projects in between as well (thereby adding more scrappy fabric choices to future blocks... win, win! ;o)
Participants are sharing their blocks on Instagram (as #sewcialbeesampler) and while we wait for each new block design to be released, we are being inspired by all the beautiful versions being made. It's a friendly, supportive sew along that I can highly recommend, whether you're new to quilting or have experience. You can find all the information you need on either Sharon's or on Maureen's blog.
