Scrappy Star Progress

I am getting there, but whew!

All scraps. Leftover shirt pieces from my sons's shirts, some goodwill shirts, and several remembrance quilt scraps.

Since I had so many of these scraps I decided to make it a queen size. As you can see I am making it in sections. I thought I had cut and sewn all the little rectangle pieces, but no, I need to make 30 more; that's cutting 120 more 1 1/2 inch squares, to go with the 30 more rectangle pieces and 15 big squares and 20 2 1/2 inch squares. See why I started with "whew!" And after I get the main section made, I still need to make some smaller side pieces and the border to finish the top. Thankful to have this day off work to sew.

At least I have my little furry friend close by to encourage me......

His favorite place to nap these days is on top of my Gammill table.
