Oh Scrap! : Turquoise Blocks

 The month of August is Teal/Turquoise/Aqua for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at So Scrappy.

So I dug through my turquoise color bin and found two solid shades that I haven't used in my Well Suited RSC project.

(Well Suited is the first module of my Scrap Mixology series patterns.  
A total of three have been released so far.)

I put them up on my design wall with the other blocks I have completed so far.  I definitely need to do a deep dive into all of my color bins to find more solid shades.  I think I want a total of 56 blocks for this quilt (a 7 x 8 block configuration).  That means I still have 30 more blocks to make.  I am not sure it will get completed this year.

I also turned the bonus HSTs from the geese components into these cute little pinwheels.  They will eventually go into another project needing my attention.

I am still making basket blocks.  I finished up this one in dusty teals.

And decided to make a couple of blocks in navy blue.

I still need a few more turquoise blocks for some of my RSC projects.  Now that the turquoise color bin is on my cutting table, I hope to get them this week.

How about you...Did you have a productive scrappy week?


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!

Your Well-Suited blocks are so pretty and appealing in all their colors on your design wall! I love the basket blocks, too. Looking forward to seeing what your plan is for them! Enjoy your Sunday, Cyndy!

Gotta say I love the turquoise/aqua blocks! You have some work ahead of you, but I know one day it'll all come together and be amazing!

your turquoise fabrics are such a great color! I love this range of blue green anyway but especially your saturated colors

Just the fact you have a Turquoise scrap bin shows you are a quilting queen, Cynthia! Always a pleasure to visit you.

I adore aqua/turquoise/teal and your mix of blocks showcase the colours beautifully.
