Whew! I'm glad that is done!. That was a lot of work. I'm glad I had the four patches made already. This is the first block in the Orange Crush mystery on Bonnie's site. The first picture is the work in progress. There are 30 blocks and I had to make 120 half squares to go with the four patches.

Here they are all finished! I like the way they look. All scrappy and yet the red and black pull it together so it is not too busy. I can't wait to see the next step. I still have my orange fabric and light blue fabric to cut into. I know it will be big. Bonnie does everything big.

I also made a few more blocks for my Combing through your scraps quilt and this is what I came up with. It is a Crown of Thorns block that I used for the setting and I like it. I will try to get this pieced together before the end of the week. The blocks are on my design board and I have to stand back to see the design. It shows up really good in the picture but in person some of the fabrics blend into the others. I have to look at it in my reducing glass to see the whole affect. This was a lot of fun. I used some scraps (even though it doesn't look like I touched them) and I learned a lot about value.

Now I need to focus on the rest of my BOM's or my boss (aka..friend who is coaching me) will tan my hide. I still have my Thimbleberries for April and May to do and a Houses BOM I need to check on and see where I stand. That's it for me today. I'm off to run some errands before bringing my youngest son to his guitar lessons.

That's right! Chop, Chop, get busy! Nose to the needle! Just kidding! All your projects look great. You make me feel like a slacker--big time!

Wow, girl - your scraps are looking delicious! Good work! I especially like the very simple but effective Combs project.
