Scrappy Plate Blocks

Remember a couple of days ago I said I would be finishing citting out the pieces for the "Scrappy Plate" project? Well I got the rest of the pieces cut out and was able to get started sewing them together. Then I spent a good hour plus mixing up the pieces to make sure each final "plate" had a random look and all the different colors were distributed evenly. I then cut out the background fabric. I really like the tone on tone stripe as I think it looks like ticking, which kinda goes with the era of the 30's reproduction fabric prints I'm using.

I managed to get three plates done today, but I get to spend the whole weekend in the sewing room, as my husband is off doing one of his shows! Yipee!!
