Expanding the Labyrinth Block Design at The Spruce: Fantastic Stash Quilts

Found this book that extends my idea for the woven frames so much it becomes the entire quilt top!  Her book has a controlled color scrap idea, and uncontrolled too.  Sounds very nice! Without seeing it I recommend at least looking into it - please see the video and link to the book too below!  Video

Referring back to my WIP:

I haven't done any more sewing on this project, instead I have scanned several of my notebooks from my reading masters degree.  Now I can discard them and have more empty space!

I have also scanned more papers from my mom, some recent so I put post-it notes on them to remind me they are scanned and it'll be okay to shred and discard in a few years.

While Not Sewing I Found These Sites

Licorice All Sorts interpretation of Crazy Mom Quilts Summer QAL
Machine Binding Post
Fabric Basket 
Denim and T-Shirt Quilt
What Happens When One Passes Away (but has a lot of quilting materials)
Nine Patches are the Detail in the Quilt 
 Instead of sewing blocks she is sewing in columns - long seams!
Spring Sampler - Piecing and FMQing - My favorite site now for FMQing fun!
I scanned 10 years of tax returns with supporting documentation.  So many different consulting jobs. It was interesting to see again.  After dinner I'll shred.  The recycle bin is full already so now there are boxes of shredded papers lined up in the hallway...  Two of the unfinished rooms are pretty much empty as I moved their contents to the house for processing.  My original plan was to go thru a few books, scan, donate, discard, return, clean up and then continue - but then decided to bring things into the house.

We went to see Ham Radio Field day set up in Poway, impressive!  Next time we should go on Saturday and perhaps later in the day when it's not so hot.
