Oh Scrap! : A Bit of Orange

 Last week, I spoke to the Ladies of the Lake Quilt Guild in Longview Washington.  I also taught my Two Bits class.  I was so inspired by everyone's blocks, I had to come home and make a few of my own.

I decided to get out my orange scrap bin and work on these four blocks.  The nine-patches came out of my spare parts stash.  I think I might try and make some blocks each week until I have enough for a quilt.  I miss playing with my scraps.

These blocks go together so quickly and burn thru all those scrappy strings.

What scrappy blocks have you been making?


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

Those are seasonal and happy! I bet that was a fun class for everyone. I hope you do get a chance to play in your scrap bins a little more in the coming weeks. Have a great Sunday, Cyndy!

bright orange colors - nice! said...

Your orange scraps sure turned out four wonderful blocks! I just finished an improv kind of quilt for a young boy. I burned through most of all the scraps. . .nothing left but a few strips!

This is the only time of the year I can sew orange and enjoy it. Love orange scraps and I don't have enough of them! Love your blocks!

I like this idea of using your extra 9patch blocks, makes a nice block and a full quilt would be good to see.
