Oh Scrap! : More Turquoise

Welcome to this week's Oh Scrap!

With lots of people staying home - I bet we see lots of inspiration!

I was able to sew up some of my rainbow scrap challenge blocks in teal and turquoise.  I haven't decided if I am going to use them as chain blocks or just use them all in a color block quilt. 

I have to admit I really like them just pieced all together.  I think once I have all the colors sewn, I could have some fun playing with color placement.

I hope all of you are staying healthy.  You may not realize it but this pandemic has been hitting the maker market (not just quilting) hard.  First, many have not been able to get items due to supply chain disruption and now events, both big and small, are (rightly so) getting canceled.  Many rely on these incomes and these cancellations are cutting deep.  So as you are spending your time hunkered down at home, if you can, maybe purchase some of those maker items from your favorite artists and designers.  Let's support each other through this tough time!

Now, show me what you have made with your scraps!


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!

I'm sure those would be great as alternate blocks, but like you, I really like the way they look together on the design wall!!

we should get a bit done in the next couple weeks to keep our minds off of what is going on around us if we can.

As usual, perfectly pieced blocks, Cynthia. Such pretty shades of teal too.

Those are looking great together as you add each new color! Each day I think of more people or workers who must be affected by all of the virus disruption - it's a domino effect. Have the upcoming classes that you were going to teach been cancelled? It's a very weird time!

These blocks will be fun to play with in the end. For now they are great inspiration to keep going! It's a crazy time we are living and dealing with. The most important thing to remember is to wash your hands and wash them again! Also, while you might not be high risk there are many others who are, and those are the people we need to think about.

omg that is a great block for scraps! I have to do that next year! I like a chain quilt in general and all your fabrics, and colors blending make it really exciting. Good job!

I always enjoy seeing how your color blocks start to take shape when placed together. I keep thinking I'll make ongoing blocks over the course of the year and see where they lead. But most often once I start making blocks I keep going till I have top. The rest of the finishing then waits forever.

I really like your new blocks! They seem perfectly adapted for RSC sewing!

Kat Scribner said...

Simply four patches and what a lovely quilt it will make !

Linda @ kokaquilts said...

I too love how these blocks look all together!

chrisknits said...

I love all those colors together!! Wonderful impact.

Julie in GA said...

Your blocks look great together! I vote for a quilt of just those blocks.

Linda said...

I'm loving your blocks, and they really look good together. Your dog quilt in the previous post is so cute! Thanks for the reminder about makers - I need to get busy ordering some things.

Susan said...

As always, I like what you've got on the design wall!

I like the color combination so far. Seeing all the blocks come together will be fun.

Your blocks so far all play beautifully together and I love the turquoise blocks!
