Oh Scrap! : Switchplates

 Most of this week was spent sewing Compassion Quilt blocks together.  But I did remember that I still have my Switchplate blocks to sew for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year.

I dug deep into the mess I call a sewing room and found all the blocks I have made so far.  I pulled out all of the blue ones (I am trying not to duplicate fabrics) so I could start cutting some blue scraps.  I am hoping to get a nice stack ready to sew Sunday evening.

I might even cut a few more squares so I can make a couple more of my other Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.  It will be fun to get back to sewing these cute little blocks.

Happy Sunday!


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!

I really like your Awitchplate blocks! I have lots of 1.5 inch strips to use up, too. Any idea how many it will take for a lap quilt size? Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

Very pretty switch plate blocks, and a great way to use up 1.5 in. strips!

Such a lovely bunch of blocks!

Switchplate blocks is a great option for a beautiful RSC quilt. Have a nice week, Cynthia! said...

Isn't it crazy what a mess sewing with scraps makes? Then when you have a stack of blocks, it looks like you haven't made much progress in using the scraps. It is so easy to bury yourself in scraps isn't it?!!!! I look forward to seeing how you set your switch plate blocks.
