Florence, I love your block.  Dawn, love the postage stamp quilt.  I got into my scrap drawer and found pieces big enough to cut into the 3.5 inch strips for the half square triangles and then cut a bunch of 2 inch strips for the 4 patches.  I had several 3.5 inch half square triangles sewn already and added them to the project box.

 Great block Florence. Looks like you're off to a good start Sheila. I have another 16 inch block done and I like this one better.

Bonita, Florence and Sheila. I do love the fabrics you are all using. If I get my mega quilt quilted soon, I might jump in on this. I just gave two totes of scraps to Goodwill but have plenty more for this project.

I think I can manage this Bonnie Hunter.  I'll probably be working with 1 1/2 inch squares.  I have some L/E's done; just have to find my squares and start working on some other quilts.  This will be great for when I do charity quilts.

I have a quilt to finish quilting, then have to cut some fabrics into useable pieces, and I will get a start on this. Golly, I have so many pieces of fabric!!!

I got my AccuQuilt GoBaby out today and am cutting 5 inch squares...also found several charm packs I am dividing into light/darks.  Also began cutting some 2 1/2 inch squares from leftover JRs and other strips.  I'm thinking doesn't matter pure white, cream, tan, as long as all lights???

The quilt I am working on now has  A LOT of 'Y' seams, so it's a good one for doing up some leader/enders .

Keep a smile in your heart :) Dorian

9 blocks will make a great quilt!  

Dorian - yes, y seams = lots of leader ender time.  I made up enough to at least lay out a block.  As I have been working on projects, I have been cutting 2 inch strips and 3.5 strips from my leftovers.  I need way more color variety for these blocks.  I have been using the 1/2 square triangles for On Ringo Lake for my leader/ender.  I am almost done with the browns.  I throw some of these in occasionally as well.  The box is growing!!

Remember, Even if you make too many 4 patches and/or half square triangles, you can always stash the extra for the next project!

Haven't posted on here for a while, but I am working on these, too.  I have a few HSTs and a few 4 patches put together.  Lots of both to put together yet. About time for me to put a block together.  Today might be that time.

I have 3 16 inch blocks made and like Sharon have a lot of 4 patch and hst ready to go . Enough to make about 4 or 5 blocks. I really have no plans to make a top from these yet so will just keep on making them as I go.

Looking forward to seeing yours Florence.

Bonita, I don't really don't have any plans yet, either, but want to have some Orphan Blocks, in case I get the notion to put a top together.  For me it was just a matter of getting disciplined to begin and end with something to put in the box.  I DO like the quilt BH is making, though.  NEVER have been a scrappy quilt girl, but the more I see of them, the more I like them.
