BLOCKHEADS 2 Blocks 16 & 17 & 18

We are moving right along and we have THREE blocks today. 
This is before they got a haircut. Just trying to keep it real here in TreeTown. The patterns can be found from Carrie - HERE , Vanessa HERE and from Brigitte HERE

Now.... there is just a big pile of blocks so far.  I can't get them all in on design wall. They fit, but I have to stand pretty far away to get them all in.  So - here is a big mess'o blocks......
Have I told you my RULE for this BLOCKHEADS2 quilt? My rule is that I can't cut into yardage.  Everything is made from my scrap bins.  Actually that's a rule for just about every personal quilt I make.  There's 2 reasons for that: 1, it's more fun and 2, it's a daily battle to control the scrap bins. But, as you can see.... the bins are so well stocked that a controlled pallete isn't hard to find.  My quilt - my rules. 

Where are the Bella Solid blocks you ask?? Well, I'm getting a bit crunched for time on some other projects - so I'm just focusing on one for the moment. What was I THINKING, anyway?

What else is going on?? I've gotten emails from UPS that lots of Portsmouth fabric will be landing tomorrow.  I'll spend the rest of the week cutting up fabric. Rotary blades are at the ready!

Some of that cut fabric will make it into a couple of kits - 
Sweet William and Hurrah! are in our Etsy shop.  You can find the kits HERE and HERE.

Laters,

Laurie

Everything is so stinkin' cute (compliment) that I can hardly stand it. I wish I had known your rule earlier about not cutting into yardage in order to manage scraps, but I'm mostly only cutting into fat quarters or fat eighths.....so that's not 'yardage'. thanks for sticking with the Minick version..I would really have a hard time deciding if I didn't have your color combos for inspiration....though I know you didn't do it for me - grin!

happy sewing and cutting.
