The other thing I am working on all year is reducing my scraps. I'm not a huge scrap quilt person - but I'm trying to embrace them in a controlled way. I usually keep all my left over pieces because I do a lot of applique - however it's getting overwhelming and on my nerves and I need to downsize them. I'm doing this with a little help from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 18 over at Soscrappy. Each month she posts a color and then on Saturdays you can link up and show what you're creating. Yay! This month's color is light to medium blue.
Okay - I cut up a these
I'm using this diagram as a pattern -
and making these blocks.
Then I used my friend's cutting machine and cut these tumbler blocks -
I also have these HST and cut more blocks to make more.
I did a little more cutting - I want to do a jig saw puzzle pattern like this -
but in several colors so will wait a few months until I put those blocks together.
Then I saw this block
and made some in blue. Oops Pepe wanted Mama's attention.
Here we go -
