Oh Scrap! : Green is the Color for May

Looks like I will be getting out my green scraps this month.  Dark green is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for May.




But before I get out my green scraps, I thought I would finish up sewing my green selvages.  I already had the lime green started but I spent this week finishing all the other greens.




To date I have 6 colors finished.  I haven't decided if I am going to just add blues and purples or if I am going to add some neutrals like black, gray and brown to the mix.  I certainly have enough selvages!



I have also sewn all of my homespun scraps into blocks.  Now I just have to cut the sashing and finish up the top.  I have it scheduled to get quilted next week so I had better get moving!

Time for you to share your scrap quilting....what are you working on?!

  1. I rarely have selvage edges to use - I buy fat quarters mainly and so often there is no edge on them what you are doing looks good

  5. Your selvage are looking so fun! I want to get up close and read them! Looks it takes a lot of them to get even as many blocks as you have there. Do you have friends who give them to you? Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

  8. Wow, that's a lot of selvedges, all seen nicely together. What is your plan with these, I wonder?
    Like everyone else, I love the homespun check blocks, it makes such a difference adding the xs to them. I'm sure you have inspired many of us with your great ideas. Thanks so much, your blog is always a fun read.

  11. ALL your homespun scraps? In my experience when I think I've used all of something and thus change the design plan -- that's when I discover more of whatever it was.....The color-coded selvedges are nifty!

  12. You have been busy! I cannot believe how many selvages you have! The more I see your homespun blocks the more and more I love them. I am getting anxious to see the top finished with the sashing!

  16. I just LOVE your selvage strips! I've never sewn with them or even saved them . . . and yet I save all kinds of little scraps. Your plaid blocks look wonderful too. Plaids are another thing I don't have in my stash. But I do have greens.
