Featherweight Challange and Fabric Therapy

My update on the Featherweight challenge. I am really pleased with the result so far.
The quilt is all scraps almost too small to use but look at the great result.Many thanks to Ria and Natima.Although this quilt has almost doubled in size I want to add some more blocks.
Adding more blocks will have to wait a while. First because I have used all my too small scraps Yahoo. The second reason is an unexpected trip to Reno to see my Mom.
No sewing machine.
I have decided on a small project while I'm away.
A charm pack to make spools . I figure they are portable and don't require quite as much light as needle turn applique. Also piecing doesn't need to be snipped while stitching. Airlines still don't let us stitchers carry a complete set of tools.
We definitely live in interesting times.
It has been a very long time since I have lived in the snow. I will post photos of the Sierra Mts in late winter. Burr

Love your Rail Fence-quilt, Terry ! They really look like lightning-strikes....... ;)))
What a good idea to use all your scraps in the blocks.... I really think I have to try making a Rail Fence again, using scraps and that woven effect that Natima did. So I will have a quilt that reminds me of the both of you!
Hope you have a safe trip. And you wrote it was an unexpected trip.....: I hope your mother is allright?!
Love, Ria.
