Tone it Down, the Super Scrappy version

I have been busy cutting all the low volume fabrics for my two new Scrap Quilts.
It's made a huge indent into the Low Volume Container.

Then last night I decided to prepare the first block of my
"Super Scrappy Tone it Down Quilt"

all 97 pieces.
Yes you read that right, 97 pieces per block and this quilt
has 20 blocks.  Looks like I have officially lost all my marbles now!

Turns out that it wasn't that bad once you sit and start the chain piecing.
So much so that in the one night I managed two blocks.

I am loving how they look. So much so that I dragged the design wall out :o)

I am thinking that today I should turn my attentions to my Japanese + & X blocks, no where near as many pieces.

Hope you find the time to do something you love,
hugs Sharon
