Oh Scrap! : Somebody Stop Me

I love Oh Scrap! Sundays...

But with all the inspiration that is linked up each week, I find myself fighting the urge to start a new project or try a new block.




Recently I saw some cute strawberry blocks that Cathy over at Sane, Crazy and Crumby Quilting started making for an older UFO she has.  Their cuteness has been bouncing around my brain and in order to justify starting a new quilt, I thought "Wouldn't it be fun to make a garden themed Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt".  So while my red scraps were on my cutting table, I whipped up my own 12" version.  My plan is to make garden themed blocks in each RSC color.  They will be different sizes and maybe technique - who knows where it will lead!

Let's see who inspires me this week!

  11. Yes, Cathy's blog should probably have a special patch warning visitors of likely contagion.

  15. Oh this looks fun! I guess strawberries are a gateway fruit to scrap addiction?

  17. Ooo! I like your garden theme!

  19. I so - or should that be "sew" - understand your temptation. I get it too and Cathy often leads me astray. Her Strawberry block also called out to me but I have been strong and resisted it so far. But it is squirreled away in my head. Your garden project sounds lovely, look forward to seeing what other blocks you conjure up.
