The last couple of days I have been sewing up 19 more little medallions that I had cut recently while organizing my scraps.
That brings the total up to 62 4" blocks.
Which means I have used more than 180 different fabrics from my stash bins.  That is not even making a dent --- I'm guesstimating that I must have over 2000 different fabrics accumulated over the last 40 years in those bins.  In my defense, some of those scraps are no bigger than 3-4 inches square each.
How did that hoarding habit happen????  Over the years, my purchasing mode of operation has been fat quarters. I always preferred 4 different fabrics rather than a yard of one fabric.   When I would travel to quilt festivals, etc., I set a budget and would buy as many fat quarters as I could ---- enough years and quilts equals a lot of scraps.

This has been a fun project for me as it really feeds into my love of fabric design, color, scraps, and fussy cutting.
I have an idea for setting these medallions together --- hopefully soon for my next blog post.

Those medallions are wonderful. I've never seen any before. How big are the pieced centers? Is there a pattern or instructions available? They look good with all kinds of fabric, which is a great way to use those fat quarters.

Wow! That's a lot of fabric but those little blocks are wonderful. Enjoyed all the different looks.
