Oh Scrap! : Still Making Progress

 I didn't find myself with a whole lot of time to sew this week but I did get a few more blocks completed for one of my RSC projects.

I made two of these color blocks in brown.  My brown bin is overflowing so I decided to add a few to my quilt top.  I am using 2" strips and trimming them up to 12" square.

I also realized my gray bin is stuffed too so I made a single block.

I think that leaves me with needing to make three more blocks.  Hopefully I will get them finished this week and the quilt top sewn.

Most of my sewing time this week was spent finishing the pinwheel quilt top.  It is now waiting on my longarm frame to be loaded up and quilted.  
I should be able to finish it up this week and share it on Friday!

It feels good to be making so much progress on all of these scrappy projects!


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!

Great use os 2" strips you made pretty blocks.

Such colorful and interesting brown blocks!!! Can't wait to see the quilt all together!

Those color blocks of yours made from 2 inch strips are really appealing to me! Not sure I specifically have a lot of 2 inch strips, though - which is why I end up with crumb blocks so often. Have fun putting this one together!

Last quilt started, first quilt finished, Cynthia? The little ones have a way of luring you in, don't they? Nice work on those neutral blocks for your RSC quilt! I'm looking forward to seeing your completed quilt top.

each of your scrap blocks is like a little world of pattern and color, controlled by the strip size. They are little gemstones and I like them lots

Jenny said...

That's a nice way to make strip blocks.

Linda said...

Your pinwheel quilt looks lovely. I’m interested to see how your strippy scrap quilt comes together. You certainly have a collection of fabulous scraps!

Bonnie said...

Hum -- a bin for brown and grey? I have so little in either color that a bin would be almost empty. Your blocks look great. I hope you can get the top quilted and bound by this weekend!

Mystic Quilter said...

How many blocks do you have now? Just like Bonnie I have very few of either brown or grey and they certainly wouldn't need a basket of their own, however some of my KFC fabrics do have either of these colours in some of their fabrics.
