Oh Scrap! : Scrap Play

With some time this weekend to play, I thought I would get out an older UFO that I had tucked away.









I had sewn up all these slabs about 6 months ago as a leader/ender project.  I decided to throw them up onto one of my design walls so I can see what I have.


It looks like I can get a quilt out of these pretty darn quickly.  Now I just to puzzle out putting them all together!




 So much scrappiness in this one.  I am in heaven!

Love the color change from blue to purple you've got up on the wall so far. Happy stitching today.

How funny! You can pull a quilt out of just about anything! I love the blue and purple combination!

I've never made slab blocks, but I can see now that it's a great way to use up some of the smaller bits that seem just too big to throw away, but not big enough for much of anything else.

I can hear your brain spinning with ideas and calculations. You probably have a big smile too. I know these things because this is really your favorite past time. The shifting from blue to purple is lovely. It will be a great quilt when it is all grown up. Enjoy the process. ;^)

Jasmine said...

I love your blue and purple slabs. I've been thinking/dreaming of making some rainbow slabs. If only there were more hours in the day for quilting. 😉

Oh, such beautiful scraps sewn! I could sew scraps for hours and hours and never get tired of seeing all the play of colors and shapes. I have a lot of big slabs, but they are not color coordinated like yours. I am pondering what to make with them.

It's really impressive how you make such great rainbow scrap quilts. Don't stop, please.

Charlotta said...

Couldn't love this any more!
