Oh Scrap! : Yellow

 Even with all the other quilts I am working on, I still try and keep up with my Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.  It is a good way for me to keep a small focus on my scraps.  We don't want them building up any more than they already are!

August is the color yellow.   So I made one heart block and one ombre color block.  I don't have a lot of yellow scraps so it was a bit of a challenge to find all these different shades of the color.

I also made 16 switchplate blocks.  Yellow is the only color I need to finish this quilt.  I will probably need more yellow blocks but this is enough to get me started so that I can decided on a layout.

Once I have an empty design wall. I can start designing the layouts on all my RSC projects.  The new Compassion Quilt block drive gets announced the end of this month and I always have some "downtime" while I wait for blocks to arrive.  Maybe I can get these tops all sewn together then.

What scrappy things have you been working on?


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

Whenever I see your switchplate blocks I want to make some! I guess I need to start sorting through my 1.5 inch scraps. Hope you haven't gotten to those really high temperatures yet this week! Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

That heart block is such a simple arrangement but so effective. I could do it! LOL And so beautiful in all those yellows. I love seeing your different blocks each week. Thanks, Cynthia!
