Scrap Quilt project

I have been trying to make one scrap quilt top a month. Sometimes I can not do a thing because of the heat, but I have got some progress.

this quilt I called "Box of Tricks". It is made entirely from 5" squares.  This quilt and the following "Times Square" I am teaching at our Scrap Quilt Day on 18th and 19th February.

Sorry about the light and shadows on the photos.  I tried to get the photos early in the morning before it got too hot outside, and of course you get the shadow.  This time I went for a lighter border.  I think it highlights the colours in the blocks better.

Should anyone want to join in the workshops, please email me Wendy@Legendandlace.com.  The cost is $50 for the day, and includes lunch, and morning and afternoon tea.  It is being held at the Lutheran Church hall at McLaren Vale, South Australia.

 These are a couple more I have been working on.  The one above is called Chuck-a-Luck.  Don't know why!  It is from my Around the Block Book.  These are 6" blocks, and I was trying to make 12 a day, and I kind of fell into a hole with the hot weather.  I want 120 blocks as it is going to be a full size quilt.  So far I have 72 made - so better than half done

 This one is yet to be named!  It is made from 5" squares again.  I need to make one more row of blocks to make it a little wider, and balance up the design.
