In between sewing up the blocks for my Beothuk Star, I cut up lots of different blues into 4.5 inch squares and stitched up a patchwork piece to see what it might look like as the sky for my Scrappy Sprouts project.
Birds, butterflies, sky, clouds, sun and flowers. This could work! I have lots more to do on this project - good thing we have two months to work on blue!
And I'm continuing to slowly hand piece these blocks with my blue scraps every evening.
Every group of four small blocks gets sewn together into the larger 12 inch star block.
Inspired by Cynthia's Oh Scrap post last Sunday, I had to go dig out more blue scraps and cut a bunch of 2.5 inch pieces.
Dark navy blue to almost white with just a hint of blue...
Because I wanted to see if I could make a block like this -
Laying it out...
All sewn up!
I see more of these my scrappy future!
And finally, the first dark blue Tiny Tuesday block - my (sort of wonky, but I'm okay with it for now) Grandmother's Fan.
Looking forward to more with my blue scraps this week!
