Half Dozen of One or Six of Another

I suppose I should try to post on Sunday for Scrap Basket Sunday
hosted by Kim.

But this time... I can't show you my "scrap project"
until Wednesday. 
I can however tell you that my project is using the
scraps I had leftover from making this quilt.
It's from the Mama Said Sew collection from Sweetwater.

What I did do was get things started for another Scrap Basket
Sunday project.
From the book: Scrap Basket Beauties...

I was going to try out a couple of patterns in the book
so I cut out a couple of blocks .

 Well, actually,

a couple more than a couple.
After I got started...
I thought...
that it might be fun to make

a sampler quilt from the blocks in the book!

And then I would decide what quilts I wanted to make from the 
book after that. 

So, I either have 6 blocks ready for a sampler quilt...
or I have the start of 6 quilts!

See you Wednesday!

I have this book, too, and can't decide on one pattern. Perhaps your sampler will help?

I think the book you mean is Kim's newest? I love the book, a must have. Also, working on a quilt from Scrap Basket Sensations, Blessings from the Hollow..if I am wrong about the book, forgive me..

I have fabric cut and ready to for one of the projects from Scrap Basket Beauties. It was a very difficult decision - they are all terrific.

I just bought that book and there is so many lovely blocks. I like your style of choosing what to do first!
