Oh Scrap! : Last Chaser Blocks

 It looks like fall is finally coming to the PNW.  Temperatures are still a bit warm during the night, but the nights are cold and the leaves are slowly changing colors.  So a lot of my time this week has been spent doing outdoor chores.

I did get the final ten Chaser blocks completed for my RSC quilt.  Here are the first six.

Here are the final four.  I decided to add in a couple gray blocks because my scrap bin is overflowing.

(I used my Chaser pattern as inspiration for these blocks.  Note that the pattern does not have the solid flip corners.  But they are really easy to add!  That is what Scrap Mixology is all about.)

I finally have enough blocks to finish this quilt.  I still need to spend some time moving around the blocks but I hope to sew up this quilt top soon.

I should start thinking about what blocks I am going to make for next year's Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts.  There are so many on my list!


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!

Those are sure a fun bunch of color! What a great quilt they'll make. We have leaves coming down, so we raked up the yard yesterday and took a load to the recycle center, and by late afternoon the yard was covered again! It will be like that for another month now, I bet. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Wow! What a fun quilt this is! So in love with the little pinwheel playing in this quilt. Great job! I'm ashamed to say that I'm thinking about next year's RSC blocks too. I'm forever living the future, can't stay in the present for long. I'm funny that way. ;^)

I love these blocks! They are so fun. It’s going to be a really cool quilt!

Cathy said...

Oh, gosh, I just love those Chaser blocks. I think the arrangement of the colored strips in the blocks from light to dark must be what makes it all sparkle and pop. Delightful!

Such good colors in your chaser blocks! This will be an eye-catching quilt.

Rebecca Grace said...

Wow, your Chaser blocks look cool individually, but they look AMAZING when you put a bunch of them together on your design wall! This is going to be a fantastic quilt!
