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!

  2. 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!

  8. 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.

  9. 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 :)

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