52 blocks in 52 weeks

Even though quilting and sewing is a fun thing that I chose to do, within my world there are still tasks that must be done and then projects that are just play.  Thanks to my wide-ranging friends through social media, I learned about the "52 Blocks in 52 Weeks" #52blocks52weeks through the Canadian Quilters' Association.  Each Tuesday a different 6.5" block is put up on the web site using grey scale.  I love the black/grey/white combinations of the grey scale and decided to follow along with the project using only fabrics from my scrap basket.  And guess what I have a lot of?!  It's been fun every Tuesday to see what the block is and then - despite whatever else is on my schedule - making the making of this block a priority. 


Here are blocks #1 - #25

And here are blocks #26 - #35

In keeping with my resolution to make things that are usable, I know that I will either add sashing between these blocks or maybe even experiment with a checkerboard approach.  Luckily I still have 17 weeks left to make that decision!  And I'm thankful that the Canandian Quilters' Association - despite our big orange leader - is letting me and other Americans play!
