Scraps in Spring

I have been working on hexagons all winter long. I have plans to make a bag. I am close to having the 2 halves done. I will have to layer and quilt, so still lots to do. 

I have gone to Quilt Canada in Vancouver BC this week. I packed a few more to baste and sew while I am away. I have a quilt in the National Juried show so I have to go check it out in person. 

A big step on the string scrap quilt got done this week. I made my map of colours. I also have key as to how many blocks of the colours I need. So now it will be quicker to get to the sewing. 

The yellow strings got done. Now with the key I can match up the other colour too. 

I am a little behind. Yes, still on April's Yellow. I have so much more pink for May still to do. Now for June we are going Teal/Turquoise , love that colour and I have a lot of scraps in it. 

I also did some 6" poverty piecing blocks too. I was close to getting some pink ones done but they are not ironed and ready for photos yet. Next week. 

I will add this to Soscrappy's link when I get home.
