Oh Scrap! : Still working with Pink

Happy Easter to all who celebrate!

Time to get out one of my favorite scrappy quilts.

 I still have a few more pink blocks to make for this year's RSC projects.

I have two paper pieced letters I need to make for my booth banner.  I finished my letter A.  The other letter I have to do is the letter S - having already made one in yellow and knowing how hard it was, I decided I needed to procrastinate...

So I started something new!

These will finish at 3 x 5".  All of the pieces for the block are cut a 1.5" x 3.5".

Here are what I have done so far.  I calculated that I will need about 30 blocks of each of the colors. 
I have a feeling that this project will run for a few years!

I am hoping this project will help me clean out a lot of the narrow strings in my scrap bins!

What scrappy things have you worked on this 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! 

Quilting is more fun than Housework

I love that bunny quilt! And your new blocks, too. How neat that they take all the same strip perfect for a leader/ender project. Happy Easter to you! said...

Cute bunny quilt and today is the perfect day to get it out! Every one of your letter blocks is terrific. I would think that each one would be challenging to get just right!

That's a cute bunny quilt. Lots of scraps in there. Love it! "I decided I need to procrastinate" made me laugh out loud, literally! I'm sure I will repeat that phrase often, haha. Interesting new project. Have fun! Oh! and good luck with the "S". It will probably be easier now that you've acquired some experience with the first one. ;^)

ROFL!! I guess that answers the question of how long you can last without starting a new project, doesn't it?! :P

I like that new block and will probably add that to my list. I was looking for one more block that uses 1.5 inch strips so I can justify cutting a 1.5 strip off of a scrap chunk. This will make block 3 and will probably take me years to complete all three quilts but so it goes. Sometimes that's the nature of wonderfully scrappy quilts.

The bunny quilt is adorable! And I’m really liking your “procrastination” blocks.

The scrappy bunny!!! I LOVE him ( or her) !!!

Was there a pattern for the bunny quilt or did you work it out yourself? Very cute. Your new project should keep you busy for a while until you decide you just want to get it done. We are having decidedly unspring-like weather and I've had enough of it.

Those tiny blocks look like so much fun.

I love the tiny block project. First thing I thought of when I saw the block is switch plates!
