Podunk Pickins #10

Hellos sweet friends!  I'm running a little late today with Podunk Pickin's.  For some reason I thought today was Saturday.  OOOPS!   My distraction was 
1652 pink 2 x 2 squares.  Scraps!  I'll be linking up today's post at Quilting is more fun than Housework for the week OH SCRAP Linky party.

If I counted correctly there's about 50  different prints.  The plan is to clear out those scrap bins by making a scrap quilt of each color.  Well after cutting all of these I still have enough pink for a couple more quilts.  Not sure I'll be able to keep up with this bright idea.

The pattern is a basic Irish chain quilt.  Here's the layout and my cutting notes.  It took a day and half to cut the pink, the butter background shouldn't take nearly as long.

Now let's get to Podunk Pickin's link up.  

This will be the last week you can enter to win the super sweet Santa Express Bundle below from this months sponsor Bev at 44th Street Fabrics.

  6. you certainly have a challenge on here but ty least the worst part (to me) is the cutting, very small squares but it will look amazing when complete

  8. Oh that is going to be SO SWEET! I love the Irish chain pattern, and I love your pink scraps. lol. Have fun!

  9. Gosh your fabrics and your pattern are so lovely. I tried counting the eit bitty tiny Suarez to figure out the size of the quilt but my eyes just can't do it.
    So short cut is to ask you what your size your finished quilt will be ?
    Also how are you putting it together ?
    By rows?
    Blocks ?
    So lovely

  10. That sure is a lot of pieces to cut. But the result will be worth it...Loveliness. Karen
