Oh Scrap! : Postage Stamp Blocks

 Oh Dear - Here it is the last weekend of the March and I still don't have all my green RSC blocks completed.  Where did this month go?!?

I did finish five more postage stamp blocks - the challenge for me right now is finding some scraps of solids in colors I haven't used yet.  I do have some larger cuts of stash I can use if necessary.  But I always like to use my scraps first!

The rest of my RSC blocks will have to be completed in April when I work on the next color.  It is hard for me to find sewing time in the many other outdoor distractions!


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! 


  1. It's hard to believe March is almost gone...
    Your postage stamp blocks for this month are pretty great use of scraps.

  2. This month really did whoosh by, didn't it? We're not used to it after living through the past year that lasted at least a decade...

  3. So glad you're having good weather for working outdoors, because I know you enjoy that so much! We're not quite there yet except for cleaning up all the broken branches that came down due to the last big snow. Those RSC blocks will be there for you to work on them when you have an indoor day!

  4. I'm enjoying each new set of blocks you make. It may be time to check out my stash of solids and finally MAKE something with them. Of course, that something will also involve some SCRAPS!!! :o))

  5. Your postage stamp blocks look amazing. I understand completely on not having enough sew time during the warmer months. There is so much to do outside. Have a lovely week. Thank you for hosting the link party.

  6. Hi,
    Love all your Postage Stamp blocks.
    all those pretty greens. Have a great day!

  7. Your postage stamp blocks look good together. Hey, there's no RSC police saying you have to finish your blocks each month. So, do them as you can. If I remember correctly you have a lot of different blocks for this year's challenge. Maybe you need several rainy days so you have to hit the sewing studio for a while!

  8. Seeing your postage stamp blocks has reminded me I should be getting on with mine, nice solid colours you've used.

  9. Lovely! I especially like the dark blue and the dark teal!!

  10. I'm enjoying being outdoors too. I've sorted the green scraps for the March RSC but still haven't pieced the blocks. However the weather is turning cold over Easter so maybe I'll be indoors playing catch up!


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