Using it up

I had just used scraps in colours I could easily spare for Sandra's workshop as It was a technique day. However, I didn't want to throw away the samples but didn't want to keep them (where?) so decided to chop them up and make blocks for a child's quilt. I used up more offcuts and scraps from the pink and mauve bags in the process. The results were a bit too chaotic so I've calmed them down with pale pink dotted sashing.
I'm putting inserts in the border to practise another technique learnt that day though this is slowing me down as I want to keep the border strip aligned. This will be a Linus quilt, I think.
