21 blocks....

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all well.
I've been working on my Rocky Road to Kansas Quilt.
At first it was going to be a lap quilt made up of twelve blocks.
But, as I kept looking at my huge scrap pile,
I though to myself.....
why don't I just keep making these blocks until I have enough for a queen size bed quilt.
I certainly have enough scraps available.
I have 21 blocks completed.
I had to buy a different background fabric because I didn't have enough of the original.
When I went to buy more they didn't have any left.
So I bought some of a similar colour.
I think I will use a few different background fabrics to add some interest.
Well, I hope you all have a great day.

Hugs
