A Sea of Blues

My Rainbow Scrap Challenge sewing with blue scraps for July has taken me all over the place!


  • From a festive red, white, and blue table runner, and a fun improv flag wall-hanging early in the month- 


  • to some blue Monkey business at the end of the month. 

  • I used up a few more scraps making some improv slab blocks - 

  • Plus 8 blue string blocks, a maple leaf, a nine patch, and some bow ties!

Of course, there are still lots of scraps in the blue bin, but that's okay because I really love blue!

Curious about what other RSC quilters have been up to for the last of this blue month?  Check them out at SoScrappy for the ScrapHappy Saturday link-up!

  1. I wish I was one of those participating in the RSC 2017 this month AGAIN! I am hoping that August will see a slow down in the peripheral doings around here...like: washing dishes, mowing acres and acres of "grass", (I really thought that's what my horses were for!) There has just been so many things to catch up on after winter happened.
    I am so far behind in all my projects, but I am determined to get back to where everyone else is with the colors of the month.
    I love your blues...but most of all I love that flag! Did you make the pattern yourself or did someone else do that one? It is the cutest!

  5. You have had a good month of scrappiness! I have fallen way down hill on the RSC17 blocks. I might just continue with them next year. I have made peace with that;) But I will continue to enjoy seeing yours.

  10. Love that monkey. :D We could almost do two months of blues: one for the darker tones and one for light blues. I know I only made it about halfway through my blue scraps this time around.

  12. Some blue beauties of projects you have! My blue bine has its very own box, unlike all but one, the green, of the other colours, which just have ziploc bags! I particularly like the improv wallhanging!

  13. Love the monkey fabrics. The Improv blocks are neat. Saw pieces of KF blue "hard boiled eggs" fabric. I can't find a place to use it. Great job with blues.
