Bag of Free Scraps

I got an offer for a bag of free scraps from another member of the Northwest Quilters Guild. Of course, I accepted. I think it would be impossible for me to turn down an offer of free fabric, even if they're just scraps. I guess I should have taken a photo, it was a really large plastic bag. 

Last night I started poking through it and found a pile of coordinated scraps; I assume they're leftovers from a project.

They are pretty and I thought it would be fun to try and make a lap quilt from them. I was fortunate to find a label on one of the pieces of fabric, Graceful Moments. I actually found the original pattern that these pieces were leftover from.
I thought about making a smaller version, but I don't have enough fabric. At first, I spent a while looking for additional yardage, but I finally reminded myself of the mountain of fabric I am currently shifting. So, I spent a couple hours in Electric Quilt and played around with designs that would use the pieces I already have.

Anyway, this is my tentative plan.
I didn't have an exact measurement for the finished blocks, so I estimated it. I may end up adding a border or two.

Since our basement still isn't finished, I'm not allowing myself to start a new project. (If anyone is actually interested in my progress on that project, I've been posting about it over at my house blog. I think it will be another couple of weeks before we can move in.) 

I'm not sure why, but I'm actually looking forward to playing with this one. I think it will be really quick.
