This bin contains anything less than a quarter yard. In actuality they’re usually scraps cut from other projects strips or things I’ve gotten from other places. Anyway, I went through this bin first and pulled out browns, creams/whites, and turquoises. Then I cut and pieced as many of the 9 patches as I could. I came out with 8 complete 9 patches.
The rest of Friday I spent going through another larger bin labelled “fat quarters and smaller” and pulled anything turquoise and cream/white. I had cut enough brown squares from the first bin so I didn’t need any more brown. I’ll probably need more for the next clue but I’m sure I’ll be going through the bin again. If I run out and need more I’ve got another bin labelled “fat quarter to 1 yard”. and then I’ve got more bins that are full yardages and then a couple of bins labeled “2+ yards”. The best part of scrappy quilts is the feeling of using up these smaller fabrics, making room and then going to the bins with the yardages and making more room. I forgot about this feeling and I’m excited with quilting again!
By Sunday evening I had 32 patches done. I hope to have the remaining 18 finished by Thursday.

You’re off to a good start! I gave this QAL some thought, but haven’t jumped in yet. I have two other QALs going, so I’m hesitant to add another one. Will be fun to see your progress!
I was hesitant as well. I’ve got the last 2 years still WIPs in my closet – hiding!
