Oh Scrap! : Catching up with the Blues

 We have been having some very warm days so it has been a good time to stay in and sew.

It has been nice to get caught up on a few projects.

I have finished sewing together all of the Covered in Love blocks. That was my biggest accomplishment for the week. Now I just need to get them on the longarm and quilt them.

A few more blue Switchplate blocks were sewn.  These are made with five 1.5" x 3.5" strips.

I also finished up my blue Chaser blocks for June.

Looks like I need 14 more blocks and I can start sewing this one together. For sure I will be adding purple and maybe more green.

I finally have an empty design wall so I was able to put up my blocks for the Positivity QAL.  I have 12 blocks finished to date (I think we are supposed to link up our progress today.
 Time to get sewing on this - I am behind schedule!

...and don't forget the placemats.  I think I finished 3 more blue slabs.  Now they need quilting too. (Yes, I load my placemats onto my big machine. I am spoiled!)

Hope you have lots of scrappy projects to share!

So many fabulous fabrics in your Chaser blocks. Some purple and green fabrics added will be fabulous. You are indeed spoiled with that big machine of yours.

Those CiL quilts are a big commitment and a big accomplishment! I'm amazed at how much you do. Love the fun, colorful Chaser blocks, and the Positivity blocks are beautiful in your different greens, too. Have a wonderful Sunday figuring out what's next on the design wall! :) said...

Impressive how you have moved through finishing those CIL blocks/quilts! Those Chaser blocks are going to make the most interesting top! Definitely incorporate some purple and green blocks! You amaze me with all you accomplish!

Chaser blocks. Have a great day!

Your number of blocks sure has me beat Cynthia! Love the greens - are you sticking with all greens or doing multiple colors? Either way, it will be lovely. Thank you (AGAIN!) for supporting Mercyful Quilts. We are grateful!
