Oh Scrap! : Pink

Pretty pink is the RSC color for June.  Boy was I happy to see that!

Usually once a color is chosen for the month, I start the cutting process for all of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts.  Then I place all the pieces next to my sewing machine so I can sew up the blocks all month long.

This week I focused on sewing up six log cabin blocks for my newest project.  I am not sure how they will fit into the quilt but at this early stage, I am just making blocks.

These blocks were made with 1.5" and 1" strips.  So the blocks will finish at 5.5".
For me, that is tiny piecing!

Here they are next to the purple blocks I finished last month.  The purple circle measures 22" across.
I will need a LOT more of the smaller sized blocks in a rainbow of colors.  

These small blocks take me ages to cut because I painstakingly dig through my scrap bins for the smallest of bits so I can find them a home.  But I am hoping when I finish this quilt, my scrap bins will be cleared out of tiny scraps.

Yeah....I even laughed when I wrote that :)

Happy Sunday Everyone!


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!

Those blocks are going to make a fun quilt with all their different sizes! And, yes, I did laugh to think that you might use up all your scraps - that's hard to imagine... Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Your RSC blocks are SEW pretty in PINK, Cynthia! Hoping to finish a project today and link-up with Oh Scrap before the party ends.

I like the curve of the design on that first photo are you planning on doing a whole quilt like that - it is very interesting that way

Jayne said...

Those blocks are beautiful. Log cabin is always great.

Cathy said...

I have pretty much the same process as you do when I new RSC color is called...dig and cut for all RSC projects. Good luck on getting rid of all those tiny scraps. You picked a nice project for doing that!

Watch out! If you let it be known that you've used up all your scraps, you might start getting some "secret quilter" mail. Love the curving log cabin design.

Louise said...

Tiny scraps can be used up?? I've never heard of such a thing! Good thing it is the pursuit of that goal that entertains us, rather than actually reaching the goal :)

Love your little pink Log Cabins!

Yah, I can't imagine you ever running out of any size scraps, Cynthia. I see what I accumulate with the bit of quilting I do. Meanwhile, I love to see log cabins and they pretty in pinks!

Little Pink is cute... and you did give me a much needed laugh this morning!

Very pretty pink log cabin blocks. I think using 1.5" & 1" strips is tiny too! Good luck taming your scrap bins! *wink*
