Scrappy Trip Quilt Started

I finally decided to tame a few of my blue/green/orange scraps.  Yesterday I met three of my Saturday goals.  I dumped out this bin and cut everything I could into 2.5" strips that were at least 16":

 
 
When he wasn't sorting pieces by big and little or turning the crank on the GO! Baby, he was busy in the living room "welding" his crockodile golf game to his skateboard with his ChuckECheese light.  He even had the visor down on his helmet.  LOVE LOVE LOVE moments like this.
 

AND my husband had his BEST RACING DAY EVER yesterday!  Whohoo!!!
