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!
Quilting is more fun than Housework

So if you love scrappy projects, feel free to grab my button for your sidebar or posts and get ready to share all your wonderful projects from scraps.  And if you have a great idea for using scraps and would like to be featured, feel free to contact me!

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.

Marti 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 Panagos said...

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

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!
