Scraps, scraps and more scraps

I'm still working on the novelty print scraps.   Same originating "stash" of them for these blocks, just width of fabric or FQ depending on what I started with.   This pile runs from about 5.75" to 6" in length.  

Finished blocks are 12" in size.   All fabrics in them are from my various scrap bins.  Fun in using them comes in from trying to remember that directional prints need to have both sides facing in the same direction.   I'm currently planning on making 12 blocks and then setting them with sashing.   When the top is finished it'll be donated to Sunshine Quilts.

Inspiration for block came from a picture I'd found on the internet several years ago and I have no clue where I found it now.  Block is super fast to make which makes me happy.

Any interest in my writing a quick tutorial for the finished quilt?

Gratitudes:
1. God's provision of  a place to stay for the night for freen as I head to Casper for the first round of Chemo.

2. All the friends in my life that I've been blessed with.

Yes, Moira, please post the size to cut the scraps. I am guessing it is 5.5 x 12.5 for the big pieces and 2.5 by 5.5 for the narrow center strips and a 2.5 square for the center. Is that correct?

Write it up, Moira! I'd make some for Sunshine, too.

Oh, yes, I'm still trying to figure out how 5.75" pieces can make a 12" block. =) I'd love to see your tutorial. I'm hoping the chemo pushes your body's buttons back to normal!
