Oh Scrap! : More Plus Blocks

 This week was a busy one!  So there was not a lot of time available to sew.

But I did get nine more of my Positivity blocks completed.  These blocks used up the last of my gray background fabric so I also spent some time this week digging through my gray scraps so find some other fabrics to use for the last few blocks I need.  I have decided to make some blocks that will stand out much more than the rest and my plan is to scatter them about.  

Maybe next week I will be ready to start laying out my blocks.

If you want to make your own Positivity quilt, you can read more about the event here.


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! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework

  5. Well, I hope your busy week was a good busy and not a "oh what now?!?" kind of busy!

  6. I've been working more hours than I have since the pandemic started. . .I'm out of sync. . .I've notice that work sure cuts into my quilting time!!! Your positively blocks are coming along. I too like the aqua corners more each time I seem them!

  7. Your positivity blocks look great!

  8. Oh my gosh, I have not even started my positivity blocks. It doesn't help that I stopped getting email notification of Preeti's posts and other things have co-opted my time. Since I have all summer, I'm going to ignore the over-achievers, like you and work on it when I can.

  9. Your positivity blocks look fantastic and I really love the aqua triangles at the corners.

  10. Your Positivity blocks are beautiful! Great idea to change them up a bit. Can't wait to see what you are going to do with the other blocks!

  11. Great positive progress! I'm doing half of my blocks in light grey and I've pulled every piece of light grey in my stash. Hopefully it'll be enough. I still really like your turquoise corners.

  12. Like the gray BKGs with the qua/turquoise corners

  13. What did you find in the stash for the accent blocks you're planning, Cynthia? Can't wait to see them!

  14. Great choice of colors on your plus blocks

  15. Hope that your busy week is slowing down enough for you to have more time to play with fabric. Your Positivity blocks are beautiful
