Oh Scrap! : A Few More Blocks

 I scheduled some sewing time this weekend but with the sun shining and the scent of lilacs in the breeze, I am finding it really hard to stay indoors.

I did get three more of my RSC Two Bits Blocks done.  The quilt needed some orange blocks.  I now have just two more blocks to complete and I can finish this one up.  I am planning for this quilt to be one of my Hands2Help donations.

While I was in my orange scrap bin, I also cut a bunch of parts for my switch plate blocks. (Thanks for the name Kathleen).  I am just sewing these as a leader/ender project.  Finishing at just 3x5", I am going to need ALOT for a quilt.

Maybe I can sew a few more scraps at the end of the weekend....


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 Two Bits blocks are fun in orange! I'll enjoy seeing all of those blocks together. "Switch Plate" is a great name for the little stripey blocks, too! Some people are really good at naming quilts - that is not my strength. :) Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Thank goodness you said the blocks were orange because I thought I had issues with the monitor, hahaha. Love your blocks. Switchplate is a good name. I first thought they looked like tissue boxes. Enjoy the outdoor. ;^)

Switch plate is a clever name for a neat block.
