ScrapHappy April 15th


Lots of fun this month going through my scrap bins/bags as I've been pulling pairs of coordinating fabrics for Origami Swan blocks.  

I completed the first seven blocks early in the month.   And this week I've fused the pieces down for the next 17 blocks.  I've also pieces cut for 8 more blocks, but those still need to be fused.

Still to have the fusible web ironed on to them are 18 more pairs of coordinating fabrics already pulled and three more that need a coordinate to go with them.   And nope, not all of the blocks will end up in the finished commissioned quilt - I only need 42 blocks for it, but I'm already seeing blocks that I don't want to put into the quilt.

Here are the links for everyone who joins ScrapHappy from time to time (they may not post every time, but their blogs are still worth looking at):

Great blocks, but what I am really curious about is what your criteria is for those swans making the cut to be in the quilt and what makes you pull a specific swan from that list! I'm always interested in the thought-process that others use to decide what goes on in their quilts and what ends up in the reject pile!!
