Wonky Houses and Trees from Scraps

It's no secret in my quilting circle that I keep scraps. (I figured I paid for the fabric and I can surely make things with the leftovers.) I have made a number of mug rugs. I have stacks of HST sewn, waiting to be put into some quilted project. My new Accuquilt Go! has helped reduce the size of the storage drawers needed as I cut various shapes. And presently, those shapes are stored in one divided box. 

But, on a visit to Persimon Dreams' website (HERE), the Scrap Quilt Challenge 2016 caught my eye. On the 15th of the month for 10 months a different designer will be featured.  They'll be sharing a fun block and/or tip or trick for using up scraps! So, I began the other night. When I had a few minutes to spare doing something that didn't need precision or concentration, I made some blocks that I will show you now. 




I don't know where it will take me, but I'm having fun sewing these wonky blocks. 
If you have scraps, perhaps you would like to follow this scrap challenge.
