So there's not been a lot of stitching this week as I've been sleeping in hotel rooms since Wednesday. There are plans for a Mom's Day of nothing but stitching. I'm looking forward to that. The pink scraps will definitely find their way to the cutting table. I'm looking forward to making the next set of scrappy blocks. All the yellow Squared Away blocks were finished before I left home on Wednesday.
The middle one is edging more towards orange, but it's a nice contrast to the other tow. I couldn't resist putting all the blocks back up on the design wall to see how well they played with each other.

This is the first time I've made a sampler with different background fabrics. I'm not sure I like it. The goal was to use up the different background scraps that were just sitting around the sewing room. I'm trying to reserve judgement till all the blocks are done and the final setting has been decided on.
That's it for my scrappy stitching this week. I hoping I'll have at least one pink block to share next week. Linking up with Soscrappy today and with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework on Sunday.
