Oh Scrap! : RSC15 Gray

Yesterday was SO productive!  I had a wonderful day sewing with friends after which I came home and spent many more hours in my sewingroom working on a number of fun projects.  Progress was made on 6 different quilts!  One of the small projects I finished up were my August blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge with SoScrappy.  This month's color is Indigo but we could substitute black or gray.  As I used Indigo in my blue blocks, I decided to add a few blocks of gray in my quilt.





My pile of blocks is getting pretty big so I have decided to go ahead and sew up a quilt top for charity.  My plan is to use more scraps for a colorful pieced outer border so I am working on that now.




Don't forget that there is a great event going on right now over at Quilts in the Queue.  I have been participating in 100 Quilts for Kids for a couple of years now.  You have until the end of September to link up your entries.  This is a great opportunity to sew up those scraps, bring comfort to a child and maybe win a great prize!

I love your blocks. But I can't look too closely on them. I could be tempted to sew some myself. I have so many projects to finish....

Love your blocks with the grey. They will be a good contrast to the bright colors.
Thanks for the reminder about 100 Quilts for Kids.

Love your blocks, and Im a big fan of grey or gold/mustard they are colours that just go with everything :) Wow you sure have been sewing up a storm :)

Love your blocks. It makes me itch to start making some. Not allowed until I finish something lol.

I'm not a huge fan of gray quilts, but I feel that your blocks look so calming. Perhaps, a gray quilt is in my future!!

Looking forward to seeing how you lay your rainbow scrappy blocks out!

Jayne said...

Those blocks are wonderful! The black and grey are eyecatching!!

Bonnie said...

Great little blocks. Hum, will you be missing part of the rainbow from a quilt if made now? Just curious.

Deb A said...

Love how you framed the nine patches in grey and black. They will make a great little quilt.

I really like your blocks. So classic looking, and the quilt will be wonderfully scrappy when put together. Love the grey! Thanks for linking up to Main Crush Monday!

I love your blocks. I have become more fond of grays in the last couple of years. Before that, I thought they were only good for spaceships. =)

Nancy said...

Your blocks look very peaceful and welcoming. Thank you for hosting the link-up, Cynthia.

Kate said...

Love your gray 9 patches!

Sheila said...

Lara B. said...

Those blocks look beautiful set in greys like you did Cyndy!
Wow you sure accomplished a whole lot!

Nicky said...

Loving those grey blocks too! Great idea to use your scraps for charity projects - I have been doing that for a UK charity called siblings together. Thanks for linking up to #scraptastictuesday
