Oh Scrap! : RSC Top

 Before I start constructing quilt tops for the next Compassion Quilt block drive, I wanted to try and sew some of my own blocks together.  I have quite a few piles of them around my sewing room.

About June of last year, I started making some Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks.  I have a bunch of 2.5" scrappy squares that I wanted to use.  I made a 12" heart block and a 12" color block.  I made one or two of each every month.  When I started making them, I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to use them - but last week, I decided to get them out and see what I could make with them.

What do you think?  I decided to use them all together in the same quilt.  And yes, Elana, those are some orphan chain blocks you sent me.  I couldn't let those go to waste.

I still have a couple heart blocks but I know I can always find a home for them.  I don't usually share just quilt tops but I don't think I will be quilting this anytime soon.

I am now trying to decided what scrappy block I want to sew up next.  I want it to be simple!

Maybe I will make another Two Bits quilts.


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

What a great layout! I too have been playing with some blocks using scraps to fill in around them. Your top looks so planned. No one would guess it wasn't!!

Oh that is gorgeous, Cyndy! I love how you connected the warm and cool sections. I would love to make something similar one day - you need to publish that pattern! Waving at you from Depoe Bay this morning - have a great Sunday!

Love your no-blocks-left-behind strategy. There's a quilt top for every orphan block! : )
