Oh Scrap! : Finally Working on Blue Scraps

 This week I was finally able to get out my blue scrap bin and start sorting appropriate bits for my June RSC blocks. Soon I had some cut pieces sitting next to my machine so sew as I worked on other projects.




So that means I have some blue Switchplate blocks ready to share.  I had already cut the green centers in May

Here are the seventeen I finished.  I think I need a total of 33 of each color so I still have some cutting to do.



I haven't decided how I am going to lay these blocks out.  I have just been putting them on my design wall - dark to light.  I have a lot of the green blocks ready but I haven't had a chance to cut their yellow centers.

I am excited about playing with these blocks once I have more colors completed.  Then I will probably go back and cut whatever other color shades I need.

Today I hope to get the rest of my blue scraps cut. 

 I really would love to get caught up on my RSC quilts!

Liking your switchplate quilt, is this part of a mixology pattern?

Are your switchplate blocks made with 1.5 inch strips? I certainly have lots of those! They look like they'll be fun to play with! Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Beautiful blues on Switchplate blocks. I like this layout and it looks like a fun block to play along RSC colors.

I like the way you are setting your switchplate blocks!

Dark to light is a great orientation for your switch plate blocks. I too look forward to begin catching up on the RSC blocks. . .I'm months behind but will start catching up late next month. It isn't a race and the scraps aren't going to piece themselves . . . .although, I wish that they could!

Your switchplate settings are both intriguing. Love the subtleties of the different tones/prints in each color range.

Nice collection of blues to work on. Hope all your cutting is done and you can start sewing soon.
