September do.Good Stitches blocks

For September's bee blocks for the Emerge circle of do.Good Stitches, Betsy asked us to delve into our scrap bins to make blocks for a Patchwork Wheel Quilt.
Instead of assembling the finished "wheels," Betsy asked for four 6.5" four-patch blocks and four 6.5" window blocks to give her some freedom in arranging the final layout. The tutorial by Don't Call Me Betsy was oh-so-easy to follow, and I knocked these out in no time. It probably took me longer to sort out scraps that were big enough than to actually assemble the blocks. We used 16 different 3.5" scraps for each set of four blocks, plus four low volumes in the middle of the window blocks, so 36 different fabrics total. I always love getting to put those scraps to work.
