Wall of BIG-T Blocks

.

I am almost embarrassed to admit that most of the pieces used to make the Big-T blocks were already units in the scrap boxes....plenty of 4 1/2" and 2 1/2" HSTs.  I cut out the cheddar centers and dark blue units.  I have made 20 (12 1/2" unfinished) Big-Ts.... had enough to make more, but I am stopping.  It will end up being big enough for a full size bed.  

Even the sashing -- I almost had enough, but will need to cut out more 2 1/2" neutral strips.  The red blocks are cowboys, cowboy hats, and cowboys on horses -- seems there is a theme -- just trying to use up what was already there.

As you can see, I have no problem with scrappy quilts....they are my favorite.  Linking up with Judy at Patchwork Times (host of the Scrappy Block Challenge)

Hey, a part is still a scrap until it goes into a quilt. You seem to have an eye to balance the values in your scrap quilts. I'm not there yet....

It's gorgeous, Jamie! I wish I had your eye for design...

You just might inspire Judy L with all those T Blocks this month. I love the stars as Sashing. Good idea to use the theme fabrics. You can see them in the 4.5" squares. Too pretty to cut smaller.

What a great scrappy quilt. Stopping is the hardest part.
