Last January I started a scrappy quilt using 2.5" squares. Then I remembered I wanted to make a blue split 9 patch quilt so I stopped sewing the scrappy blocks. I needed the blues for the split 9 patch.
Since those blue split 9 patch blocks have all been pieced, I've started making scrappy twosies again. I'm using lighter yellow fabrics from my stash. I hadn't realized I had so many soft yellows until I was digging through that tub last winter.
Once I have the twosies made, I'll sew them into 4 patches then into 16 patches. I'm using Becky's Checkered! pattern as my resource except with 2.5" squares and yellow.
I'm sewing the twosies as leaders and enders while working on other projects and I have plenty of 2.5" squares! How many twosies do I need? I don't know, I'll just keep sewing until the squares are more under control. I'm planning on at least a double sized quilt.
