What Am I Up To?

I am on to a new project involving scraps of course! I love scrap quilts and I save scraps religiously.

I found this pattern, called Trellis, on Etsy here. The pattern is by Karen Griska so check out her site. She has some great patterns. I did alter this a bit. The pattern calls for using 1 3/4 strips but I seem to have an abundance of 2 1/2 strips so I reworked the block with those strips. The original block ends up at 6 inches finished. but the reworked one is 8 finished. Here's a block in the bottom left of the picture below. I have no idea what size quilt I'll end up with but I'll decide along the way. This is a fun block to make!

Other than that, winter hangs on here but spring is trying to show up. It may be in the 50's this weekend which will feel like a heatwave in these parts!


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
