Oh Scrap! : Scrappy Block Progress

I have been spending quite a bit of time lately in my sewing room.

I finished up nine more of my Well Suited blocks.  I have been working on this RSC quilt all year and have decided I just want to get it done.

I think I want a 7 x 9 layout so that means I need 22 more blocks.  I think I have 13 blocks cut and waiting to sew.  I might have to raid some stash pieces to find some solid colors (for the geese) that I haven't used yet.  So far all of these have been in my scrap bins.

When I make the geese for the Well Suited blocks, I turn the cut away triangles into these cute little pinwheel blocks.  All of the blue pinwheels, I made when I made this blue Well Suited quilt.

So far I have 16 blocks completed.  This will be another quilt I should be able to finish up hopefully this month.  My plan is to sash these blocks with a wider white strip than the strip in the block.  I think I will add some scrappy cornerstones too.

I also made some more basket blocks but they got mixed into a stack before I got a photo.  Hopefully I will just have a finished quilt soon!

What are you working on!


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!

The flying geese quilt in Well-Suited is going to be so fun! And I love the look of your bonus pinwheels, too. Will they have a sashing in between each block? Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!
