I've been enjoying playing with my blue scraps this week, continuing the July color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
First up, this week's Marvelous Monday Mini block, from Temecula Quilt Company. I've made 10 of these little blocks so far - I'm getting really curious to see what we will end up doing with these!
I also played with my blue string scraps to make this month's blocks for my String Star quilt.
String blocks are so much fun to play with!
And in the category of "Just because I had to," I made a couple of orange blocks to add into the mix, and see what will be happening when I have all the blocks made for the star. You might notice that I fudged a couple of orqange blocks just to see what they will look like there by the red center square!
All I have left to complete my design plan are 6 orange blocks and 12 more of the neutral/low volume background blocks! I'm excited about this one!
And, finally, I made some blue bow ties.
The bow tie blocks started as an "I want to make a few of these just for fun," block earlier this year, and since they measure 6.5 inches, I know I will need a bunch more to make even a lap sized quilt. So far I've made just 20 bow ties, and probably need at least 80 to get a 4 x 5 block layout, if I sew them into 12.5 inch squares of four bow ties each.
Lots more blocks needed, but on the way to being a fun and scrappy quilt! My low volume mini, which I have plans to add some applique to, is still in the same state it was last week, as I continue to mull over what I want to add to it!
I'll be sharing my scrappy blues over at SoScrappy and Quilting is More Fun than Housework for their weekend link-ups!
