Oh Scrap! One Last RSC Block

On this last day of September (Can you believe it?!), I have one more blue block to share with you for my Rainbow Scrap Challenge garden quilt.

When the color blue was announced, the first thing blue I thought of was a morning glory. 


Well, it took me all month to figure out how to make something that might pass for those blooms.  That is if I tell people what they are supposed to be  :)

I thought I had taken photos of some of my early attempts but I guess I was too quick to hide the evidence.  They were even too poor for the orphan block stash!




I did toss up all of my blocks to date up on a design wall.  I am going to have to make some smaller blocks in future months or this quilt is going to be large enough to literally cover my gardens!

I think next month should be dark green and I already have a few ideas for some fill in blocks.  I will save some of my other green blocks for a lighter shade next year.

What have you been doing with your scraps?

  4. So maybe you did have to tell us it was a Morning Glory, but after knowing that it is very obvious that that indeed is what it is! I love that you stuck with it until you came up with the exact right design for it. Although I would have loved to see what the test blocks looked like!! This is turning out to be a very fun quilt!!

  13. I saw flowers right away and didn't think about how finicky it must have been to figure out the block. They all look so fun together.
