Vintage Blocks New Quilt Nine Patch and Circles. The circular blocks were a nice addition, but I was accumulating a pile of fabric scraps.
Since I couldn't throw away even the tiniest of pieces, my solution was to piece them together in long bars for the Homage to Mary Engelbreit quilt. The traditional Chinese Coins pattern was my inspiration for the design for the third quilt.

four patches I salvaged from the original quilt on point. Then I set them with alternating blocks from the American Jane fabric by Sandy Klop for Moda.
Now the real challenge - how to use the remaining scraps to create just one more quilt!
