Using up those quilt experimentation blocks

I made three pillows from some blocks I had laying around, plus a tote bag.

Total guess here on yardage.  Maybe 3/4 yard on the blocks and lining for the bag and 2 yards of background fabric for all of it?

What a great idea to use up your test blocks, the cushions look super all together on the sofa :)

Jacq has said it for me :), the pillows are lovely - you have a quilt behind them, I think,which makes them fit so nicely. The tote bage is gorgeous. I can see scraps easily making a tote like that - but I am not going to start stashing patchwork stuff on top of sewing, knitting, needlework stuff already stashed. On the other hand...I am tempted :)

What a great idea for using your experimental pieces. I love them!

Thank you, everyone! I tend to get a big pile of blocks that were some technique I was trying that never materializes as a quilt. These are fun and are in some of the fabrics from the quilt behind it.

You know you want to..... ;-)
I do all those things (needlework not so much), plus I spin. I feel a bit spread out sometimes, but I honestly love all of them!
