Oh Scrap! : More Red Blocks

 This week was a pretty productive one.  I worked on about 4 different projects and made some great progress.  I finished all the blocks for my UFO quilt and am busy sewing up the rows.  I made two more placemat tops that I can quilt up soon.

On the scrap front, I made four Bloom blocks in red.  This is a new project I am starting this year.

The four blocks will go together in the quilt like this.  I have had one of the medallion layouts shared in the pattern stuck in my head so I know I just have to make it so I can move on.

This quilt will not be made from 100% scraps - I am using all the same white fabric for the background and the bases will all be the same.

I also finished another geo letter for my banner.  I have two more in red that I need to complete.  Hopefully I can finish them this week.  I messed up a bit on the background for this letter, but I can fix it when I go to put all the letters together.  You all know how I hate to get out my seam ripper!

Hoe you all enjoy your week!

I wanted to make this basket block for RSC but I already have too many on my plate. I don't know what you did wrong with the letter block but I trust you if you say it's wrong. ;^)

I like your basket block - that grouping of four look really well together

Love those letters! And Bloom will be a very dramatic quilt! I've seen that setting in antique basket quilts, and it's dynamite.

Pretty Bloom blocks in RED for the RSC, Cynthia! Looking forward to seeing this Medallion come together and your UFO quilt, too.

I love that layout idea for the Bloom blocks, too! Once I've made enough of them, I'll enjoy playing with those layouts. I've been trying to figure out why you would be making a Z for your banner, lol! (But then realized it could be an N! :) Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!
