Oh Scrap! : Red

 With September here, it is time to get out my red scraps for my RSC quilts.  I am down to just 2 active projects right now so I need to start thinking about some new designs.

I dug through all of my red scraps and then my solids stash and I could only come up with three shades of red.  I am hoping in upcoming months I can find or acquire a magenta solid so I can make one more blocks.  This is a longer term project so I have lots of time.

I am using 2" squares so my blocks are a little different than a traditional postage stamp block.  But the slightly larger size seems to be giving me the best yield out of my small scraps.

My sewing room is currently strewn with scraps as I am actively working on about 5 different projects.  And they all require different type of scraps.  I am hoping to get some serious sewing accomplished during the holiday weekend.

It is sure hard to believe it is already September!


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 are fun! I actually started working on a postage stamp block with 1.5 inch strips of red and 1.5 inch squares. That is labor intensive! It may be the only one I make - we'll see... Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

I hope you find another red for your blocks! Being a scrap quilter, I can only imagine what your sewing room looks like with 4-5 projects happening at once. But...I bet it's fun!

Hoping you get lots of scrappy sewing done over the holiday weekend, Cynthia. Your RED blocks for the RSC look awesome!

Lovely projects to work on for this long weekend. I've been working on my red Crazy Quilt blocks for my RSC. Have a great day!

I'm always happy to see more postage stamp blocks!

Great postage stamp blocks. They're looking great. Maybe you'll find some FQs of magenta in your LQSs in the Christmas and/or Valentine lines? Sometimes it's all in the hunt!

Hi Cynthia, those blocks are coming along nicely. I hope that you got a lot of sewing done this weekend. Take care.
