Postage Stamp Quilt Along

One of my friends told me about Rachel's Postage Stamp Quilt Along.
I jumped over to PSIQuilt to check it out.
I decided to use my pastel scraps for the Postage Stamp Quilt.
I know I said I have to finish a few UFO's before I start another project, but here I am using my stash.  Good enough reason for me to start another fun scrappy quilt.
A strip sets.
 B strip sets.
 Yeah I am using my scraps!
 I love my Shape Cut ruler. You are probably wondering what is up with the blue painter's tape. That is just to make it easier for me when I cut up my stash into strips.
 I cut several 2.5" segments at once.
 Can you see what I did wrong? I think it is a good idea to mark the other side of the Shape Cut ruler with 2.5" strips so that I will not make another mistake like this.
 My first few blocks are done. I love how they turned out.
Happy Quilting until next time,
