Oh Scrap! : Slowly Moving Along

I really didn't feel like I spent too much time in my sewing room this week.  
So there is not a lot to share today!

 I have been continuing to make blocks for this quilt.
(Sorry about the poor photo but these colors do not photograph well with no natural light.)
I am pretty close to having all my blocks finished - then I will just need to work on the final layout and sew them up!

The other thing I did this week was to get out the final stack of orphan blocks to make a quilt from.  This one will be pretty straight forward.  I have a small stack of 4.5" HSTs leftover from a project.  I tracked down some coordinating scraps I had and a dark plum fat quarter that looks great with the others.  I will just need to decide on a layout.

The problem is I don't have any gray in my stash that matches the gray in the finished HSTs.  I probably could go and buy some but that is too easy!  

I do have a darker gray so I think I will make more HSTs so I have enough for a small quilt and see what I can make happen.

The great thing about playing with these leftover blocks and stash fabric is if it doesn't turn out, I don't feel bad...I just take what I learned and move on 😎

Happy Scrappy Sunday!


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!

Looks like you're moving along with the floral blocks - sometimes that's all that happens in a week! I'll look forward to seeing what you do with the new project, too. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Final stack of Orphan Blocks?! Go, Cynthia, go!!! Can't WAIT to see what you come up with.

I look forward to seeing what you make with that last batch of orphans. I think the darker grey will be a good addition.

Love your framed KF flowers--so vibrant hugs, Julierose

I think that's the perfect mindset to have when it comes to quilting and colors, especially if they are from scraps. If it doesn't turn out you can move on with little or no guilt. After's just fabric!! I have a feeling you'll make it work though!

I think the darker gray will be a great blender. You can create some neat dimension playing each off the other. Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I like how all the blocks you have so far are looking together. The spots of brighter colors really add a nice punch.

I love all your blocks! It's always such fun when you bring the orphans out to play!

So looking forward to you finishing that quilt at the top of this post. I just love how the blocks are turning out.

Taking what one learns and moving along is the very best way to have a happy and fulfilling hobby, I think! Looking forward to seeing where you go with these scraps :)
