Oh Scrap! : Purple Love

A new month means a new Rainbow Scrap Challenge color.
I was so happy to hear it was purple - one of my favorite colors!




Right away I sewed up both of my RSC18 blocks in some pretty shades.  This year I am making bowtie and what I have termed Ladder blocks.  Both finish at 8" so I laid them out on my design wall together.  I may make a few more bowtie blocks if I come across more Kaffe Fabrics but the Ladder blocks are already done for the month.

The new block design for the Squared Away sampler has been released too so I will be working on that next.  It is called Wishing Ring and you can find the block instructions here.

I think I need a new scrap project!
(Someone please talk me down....)


******************************************


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up:
  • This linky party is for any scrappy project - It can be in-process or a finished piece.
  • You can link up your blog post (not your homepage please) or Instagram photo from the past week that features your use of scraps.
  • If you are linking to a blog post, I ask that you link back to my blog somewhere in your post. So if you are writing about scraps, just get into the habit of including a link as there will be a linky party available every week!
  • If you are using Instagram, please use the hashtag #ohscrap.
  • This is a party so remember to socialize and comment on the posts of others.
  • Following my blog is not necessary but it sure would be great if you do!

Cynthia, the 2 blocks will make a pretty quilt, won't you agree?
Great purples and beautiful blocks

Those blocks look great together! That's a fun idea!

You got a good start on those purple scraps. Looking forward to seeing your Squared Away blocks.

MartiDIY said...

Your blocks look great. I like the block combination you have there.

As my Grandmother would say, "You need another SCRAP project like you need a hole in your head!!" I'm not sure where the saying came from, but she would insert whatever was unneeded into it... every time.

I like your block combination. Makes a neat pattern.

Nah, I won't talk you down... how long does it take to make a few RSC blocks and one of the Squared Away blocks. (Please, tell me you only do one block of that, right?) I've decided I won't do the RSC this year -- I'm trying to get a few UFOs done. (HA! I really haven't worked on anything except new projects since the end of December...) Some time this year I will pull out an official UFO though and it will probably be a scrap quilt.

Those purple blocks sure are lovely, and they work so well together! You definitely should find another scrap project - you are so good at them!!

Sandy said...

You're right, the ladder blocks look really good with the bow ties. I like it!

Miaismine said...

Your blocks are so pretty! Bowties are one of my favorite blocks! I never thought about combining them with other blocks - but wow! What an eyeopener! Thank you!
