Oh Scrap! : RSC Blocks

Why Hello April!


Aqua is the color for this month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.  I decided to include the turquoise color in my blocks because they share the same scrap bin.

I quickly finished three color blocks made with 2.5" squares.
This one is my newest RSC addition.



I started this quilt last month when the color was green.  Now I have six blocks up on the wall.  No thoughts on how they will be laid out.  It will be months before I am ready for that decision!


The other RSC project I made some progress on is my scrappy quarter log quilt.  I decided I don't want to add aqua so because my pink scrap bin was already out, I made a couple in darker mauves and burgundy.  I think I am down to only needing 8 more blocks.  I know I need purple but I need to inventory what I have and decide what other colors I want to make.

I will probably finish this one up in the next couple of months.

*********************************************
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! 
Quilting is more fun than Housework

I love those 25 patch blocks! So pretty and interesting in different shades of the color. I have always liked your quarter log cabins, too - but no turquoise for that quilt? You must have a certain plan for that one!

Quarter log cabins! something else I really want to make! Yours are lovely; such subtle colour changes.

Those green to aqua blocks make a nice color shift! Rainbow effect, eh?
Your quarter log cabins are intriguing and fun! I'm looking forward to seeing that finish!

Your aqua and turquoise scraps are so pretty together! I realized after linking up that this is supposed to be a linkup of our scrappy projects, and although I MENTIONED my new scrap project in my blog post, I forgot to take a picture of it... Whoops! :-( Well, the flying geese quilt is CREATING a lot of scraps; does that count?

Your aqua blocks look great. I'm really having to scour my scraps (and fat quarters) to find enough. I guess that is what happens when you make a queen size quilt with turquoise scraps.
