Bits of Green

We've been out of town this week, but before we left I sewed up a few bits of green.

A sawtooth star with a Spring green floral center to add to my collection -


Bright pink and peachy-orange - those will need to be spread out from each other a bit - lol!  We'll see what happens as I make more blocks!



And progress was made on my Tiny Rails block for March, too.


Twenty-five 1.5 x 2.5 inch green bits sewn to whatever low volume pieces I can find in the same size to make 2.5 inch squares - then into rows of 5 and finally into a 10.5 inch square.  These are put together as leaders and enders while I work on other blocks through the month.

Just for fun, I'll leave you with some green non-sewing photos!  We took a quick trip to San Diego this week, and really enjoyed exploring the city and spending time by the ocean.  


Beautiful green succulents grow everywhere outdoors!   We found these along the boardwalk in Mission Beach.

And these ride-sharing bikes are also everywhere - 
Lime Bikes!  Access them with an app on your phone, ride to wherever you want, and then leave the bike there.  They even come in an electric version!

Happy ScrapHappy Saturday!  Sharing at SoScrappy.

  1. I love San Diego. There used to be several nice quilt shops in the area but it's been a long time since we visited. Your sawtooth star collection is shaping up nicely.

  8. You Sawtooth Star blocks are sweet. You must enjoy the fussy cutting. Wish I were enjoying the lush flowers in San Diego right now. Even one daffodil would be nice. Enjoy your memories!

  14. I saw bikes like those when we were in Phoenix in February. I like the idea of your 2.5" rail blocks. Maybe that's what I'll do next year!
