On the Wall

My design wall is the same this week.  Wait...I didn't get a chance to post last week, so you haven't seen it.  I finished all the corner pieces on these rail blocks. 

 I needed the storage container that this project was in, so I decided I would just sew it together.  I cut it out long ago to use up scraps, but I never started piecing it.  The pattern is from one of Kim Brackett books called town Square.  Her first 2 books are all from 2 1/2" strips or scraps.  I love that the book tells you the directions from both strips or scraps.  She has some great patterns in both books. 
Softball finished this weekend, so I can get back to my regularly scheduled life.  School starts on Tuesday, so not much of a summer vacation.

Love the pink with the black and white. I would likely go out and buy more storage containers! LOL
