Oh Scrap! : Never Ending Strings

 My plan for this week was to get out my orange scraps and cut what I need for all of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects.  The scrap bin is still on the shelf and all I have to share are some more string blocks.  I seem to have a never ending supply of RWB strips right now.

This week I made six more 10" string blocks.

I thought I had better count them to see how many blocks I have.  Right now I have 28 blocks!  So I just need two more for a 50 x 60" quilt or I can make 14 more and make a bigger quilt at 60 x 70".

I think I will just continue to use the scraps as they are made and any extra blocks, can just go in the box for next year's blocks drive 😎


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

It's fun to look at your r, w, and b string blocks! So many cute prints - I love the flowers especially. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

That's a lot of scrappy fun in those blocks. Hope you were able to get our orange RSC blocks going before the end of the weekend. said...

That is a great plan for the string blocks. I've been thinking of doing the same. . .stitching a few blocks as the strings start to accumulate rather than over flowing the container! LOL

Great string blocks! I like the RWB color choice.

There is so much variety and color in your string blocks! I think that's what makes string quilts so much fun to make and to look at. Plus you get that good feeling from making something useful and beautiful from even the smallest scraps!

Cynthia your RWB string blocks are lovely. Can’t wait to see what you decide to do with them.
