I am a member of the Quilters Anonymous Chapter of the Arizona Quilters Guild. It was here that I first heard about Fave Quilts. They feature a ton of free quilt tutorials! This is where I found the inspiration for this beautiful scrap buster, Fun with Bricks. It’s a wip (work in progress). I’ve completed only the top. I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to add a border.

Not so long ago I went through a big bag of strips and scraps and separated the strips according to width. I now have 4 drawers of strips; 1″, 1.5″, 2″ and 2.5″.
As if this weren’t crazy enough, after seeing all the beautiful and inspiring quilt tutorials on QITR, I started making homemade layer cakes AND charm packs! Well I haven’t actually put the layer cakes or charm packs together, but I have been cutting 5″ and 10″ squares. My goal is to cut a few squares out of all my fabric, however, I just realized today this will be be a never ending feat, as I continue to accumulate fabric. But it’s okay, this is the life I’ve chosen and I shall happily live it!
