Scrap Therapy Plus One... Little Squares

A few of the ladies from my guild and another guild attended a class with Joan Ford. She is the author of Scrap Therapy: Scraps Plus One and Cut The Scraps: 7 Steps To Quilting Your Way Through Your StashHere is a link to her blog- Hummingbird Highway.
Here are some of her quilts.  Way nicer in person.

See how tiny these little patches are.  In her quilt, 99 Bottles, there are around 500 give or take.  If you want details see her book Scraps Plus One.
Here is my box of scraps to work from. I wish I had brought more 2 inch ones.  At the last minute I decided I wanted to do blue theme.  But in the end I am going with whatever for a total scrappy quilt.
Here is our teacher, Joan Ford.  A real good sport that thankfully has a good sense of humor.  We might have become just a tad rowdy on her.  Nothing out of the norm for our group.  No one would ever call us straight laced.  Just a warning there.
This is all of us, ah hem, except for the people that just would not get their tails out for a pic.
