Yellow leaves and scrap vomit

I've been wanting to take a picture of our tree in the front yard before it turns any more brown, I think it is beautiful.

And I will let you know how crazy I am. I saw this quilt on flickr a few months ago and loved it. Isn't it amazing?
Now, Katy is doing a quilt along.
So, last night I pulled out my huge bag of scraps and started cutting. Casey laughed at all the scraps I had :) Now, let me explain a little about how much I have on my to do list at the moment: I need to get caught up for the past two months for quilting bee blocks, I need to write up a tutorial for a soon to be guest post, and I have a ginormous list of things to get done for upcoming holiday shows. There is not time for me to be cutting up what seemed like a million 2.5" squares. Well, I did it anyways, I needed some time to do something for me :)

So now I have all 965 scrap squares cut out. And my scraps are much more manageable now :) I still need to get some black and blue cut, but I'll save that for another time.

Love that quilt! With your piles of squares you are well on your way to your own quilt like that!
