WIP -Flimsy, scraps and scrappy!

I could not resist from running out and taking a photo with these mums! They are volunteer mums too. That is a tomato plant next to them. ha This was supposed to be my vegetable garden space but when my husband and I both ended up with health issues this year the garden went on the wayside. Someone was thinking of me I guess. 

This is a top that I put together from one of the kits for the organization Quilts for Kids. Our local chapter covers most of our state and some surrounding ones too and we make quilts for sick kids in the hospitals.  This X and O quilt was so fun to make. I hope to get it quilted up but heard rain was in the forecast so had to get a photo in now!

  When you make these little blocks you end up with tons of little triangles but this time I thought ahead and stitched them together right away. 
  94 half-square triangles anyone??? I have to trim them yet but I will be sure to make something scrappy with them. Speaking of scrappy.........

 I made this totally scrappy lanyard. It is going to work just perfectly for our guild name tag that I want to make. I bought some Spoonflower fabric with our guild logo on it and hope there are enough for everyone if they want to make one. I have not started yet but hope to soon.

What a cute quilt! Good job with those little bits, too! You just reminded me that I have some squares like that that are leftover from our supernova quilt. Hmmm..what did I do with those? Love the mums too, so pretty!
