I do love a good scrap quilt

This little charmer is made of small flannel scraps. Each brick is the same size, 1 1/2" x 2 1/2". I can't seem to throw them away. I put flannel on the back and think that at approximately 32" x 40" this will make a nice cozy wheelchair quilt. I don't think it is too long.
My intervention is over and I am left with a dozen quilts needing binding and a husband who now knows how to piece batting and how to pin quilts for quilting. He wants to learn how to use my machine. So I guess that's what happens next.
For my "August intervention" I could use a little help taming the scraps. So if we can find a time that is what is on our agenda.
Last week my sister and I had a wee little vacation and part of it involved a trip down memory lane. We went to Sudbury, Ontario and visited Science North and Dynamic Earth. Sudbury's Big Nickel is found at Dynamic Earth and we think it was about 55 years ago that our Mom and Dad took us on a car trip to Sudbury. It was fun sharing the memories.
Piecefully, Joanne
