More Novelty Scrappy Fun.....

I've still got more novelty print scraps leftover from the swatch sets, enough for at least 2 more quilt tops and that's after getting blocks for 3 complete tops so far.

I am getting down on size though, and what I'm working with at this point are about the width of a FQ in length and 5" in width.   In an attempt to use all that I can of the fabrics, and pairing them with scraps or other pieces that I already have cut in squares I will be making up these striped "Beach Ball" blocks.  

Unfinished they are 10" in size and will finish out to 9.5".   I've enough for at least 20-22 blocks, and with sashing that will make a respectable sized kids quilt for donation.



Any interest in a quick tutorial for this block?

Gratitudes:
1. Side effects of chemo, while irritating, are so much less than some people fight.

2. I was able to figure out a solution for the t-shirt quilt where I'm working with 2 different color shirts on either side.....now to frog-stitch one block so I can redo and have it look like I want it to.
