Oh Scrap! : Loose Ends

 With the end of February coming up fast, I spent the last week cleaning up some of my scrap projects and making sure I had all my yellow blocks completed.

I did get my little blocks completed for the RSC Full Stop sampler quilt.  I am not sure yet how I am going to put all the blocks together so I only made a few of these.

I also sewed together the next set of blocks for Covered in Love.  I plan on loading it next on my longarm.  Now I will start to sew together all the red, white and blue stars.

I also dug out this old UFO.  Remember this?  I was thinking I needed some yellow blocks but I think I am just going to limit the colors to just those I have already sewn.  At this point, I think I just need to focus on making the tiniest blocks - the circle finishes at 5" for those!  I was happy to see green is the color for March.  That means I can make some more progress on this one...

I hope you hare having a Scrappy Weekend!


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.

  1. Those are tiny circles. Looking forward to seeing all those blocks come together in a quilt.

  2. Oooh, a very fun and different layout for those blocks. Looking forward to seeing how this one comes together.

  3. Who knew log cabin blocks could be so creative,versatile and fun. I do like your colours you have together presently, Cynthia. I don't say it enough, but thanks for hosting this lovely linkup!

  4. I love how you just 'pull out' some scraps from your bag of tricks!! If I didn't know better I'd say you are really Felix the Cat! Dating myself here...You know we all love seeing what you are up to though!

  5. Ooo! I'm happy to see your orbs come out to play again! Good luck with the little circles!

  6. Hi,
    Beautiful Scraps to work into a gorgeous quilt.
    Have a great day!

  7. It's always a good feeling to clear up loose ends with various projects going on at the same time! I love seeing your log cabin blocks again. I'll enjoy seeing how you put this one together!

  8. So many intriguing projects here!


  9. The tiniest is really tiny.
    I am enjoying so much making this blocks, this year. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt.

  10. Lots of scraps flying around your studio, Cynthia! Thanks for the reminder that I still want to try that version of Angela's Quotation marks. Off to the studio to sew...

  11. This WIP shows how very versatile the log cabin block can be. I can't believe how small the circles are at 5".

  12. The danger of following this scrappy link party each week is that I see things like your fabulous Full Stop blocks and realize that NO scrap is too small to save! My scrap bins are so full that I can barely close them but I'm saving more and more little slivers and crumbs!

  13. Are those yellow quotation marks? Your creativity always amazes me!

  14. You've reminded me of so many things! I picked up so many potential RSC projects, I forgot about "Full Stop". Since I'm behind on my colors so maybe when I catch up I can add those in. And is this a new CiL block? Have to check that out too!


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each and every one and try to respond with an email.
