Another day in paradise (aka the sewing room)

What a difference having an organized sewing room makes!  I've been down there more this past month than the past year combined!!  Today, I worked on my February Block Lotto blocks, Snails Trails,
These 6" blocks had to use brown and a light or low volume print.  I hope to make 5 more before month's end. 
as well as a house block for the 2016 Neighborhood Block Party.
This is a 12.5" block, based on a photo of a house block I saw online.
And then, of course, I've been cutting and cutting and cutting my scraps.  I swear, it doesn't seem like the scrap pile is getting any smaller, even though my precut bins are filling up.  I've got 7 weeks to get my scraps under control and then whatever is left untamed must go!

Looks like fun!!!! In all the years I have been quilting, I have never made a snails trail block. Have you received the block lotto blocks you won yet? I am still working on organizing my fabric too. Have you ever tried making a c
Scrap vortex quilt? There is a picture of mine on my blog header.

The snails trail is one of my favorite blocks and yours is gorgeous. Thanks so much for joining the Neighborhood party! I visited Irene yesterday and saw your block "in person"........it's even prettier than the photo!

I like your house block. Very pretty. This has been fun to do, hasn't it? I am glad the two quilting ladies are doing this project again this year, aren't you?
