I chose a solid blue for my background and then had to decide WHAT scraps to use. I decided to limit myself to yellow, orange, blue, aqua and green. This will be a small project - six inch blocks. If I ever find my tablet of graph paper, I'll get a lay-out figured out.
This is just a start - I have a lot more squares and triangles cut out!
What else have I been doing? Hand quilting on one project, knitting a second spiral hat (better yarn and the correct needles), and reading (the last two were Gone Tomorrow by Lee Child and Rough Weather by Robert B. Parker).
