Oh Scrap! : Scrap-A-Palooza Quilt # 20 Part One

Even though I still plan to revisit a few more past Scrap-A-Palooza designs, I have been craving something new.  So I thought I would share another great idea for using up those scraps.  
...And that is a one block quilt.

To make this type of quilt, you just need to pull out some of those specialty rulers or dies.  You need a single shape that can be sewn together to make an entire quilt top.  Here are some examples I have:  a diamond, a 60 degree triangle and a tumbler block (Accuquilt die).  A hexagon is another good choice.

To help decide on a ruler/die, I look at my scraps to determine what shape will work best for the size scraps I have.  My blue and green scrap buckets are still overflowing so I think I will focus on cool colors again. 
I will share soon what I decided on!

I think I am happiest when I am wading in scraps...


Now it is time to share your scrap projects, 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've been thinking about starting a tumbler quilt. I can't believe I am even saying that! But I saw one that Bonnie Hunter made as a leader and ender project, and oh, it is a wonderful scrappy thing! Can't wait to see what you choose!

Hi Cynthia! Your scrap pile looks inspiring! These days I have triangles in my mind. Diamonds are very good too. As I don't have any time to be in my sewing room I was thinking perhaps to do some hand piecing. Have a lovely summer! x Teje
