Scrappy Saturday

White is the colour for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month. I don't have a lot of white scraps, because I tend to use up white scraps faster than other scraps. But I did come up with 2 ideas to work on this month. One will be a gift for a baby shower for a soon-to-be-born baby girl (funny how everyone knows the gender if their babies before they are born these days...doesn't anyone like surprises anymore?!?) So I thought I'd combine white with pink (which I have a lot of!) 

Here are my pink pieces...some are partial strips and chunks, and some are Fat Quarters...wonder how much I'll need?
I have cut and pieced some units and am having a great time!
The design I am planning is one I have seen a few times on Ruthie's blog Threads of Mine. Here are 3 versions to view: 1) baby quilt in blue - click here, 2) pink, green and brown quilt - click here, and 3) pink and white version like mine will hopefully be - click here.
To see what other quilters are making with their white scraps today, hop over to SoScrappy.

  2. Cute pattern for a baby quilt. The pink, brown and green remind me of ice cream. I love your header too! Now that looks like work!

  4. I love to make baby quilts as I am partial to soft colors but these days the baby quilts all have a color scheme or pattern to match the room...no longer random ugh....sigh. Yours will be cute though! I also love the civil war squares and am liking the blues and browns a lot, very comfortable looking and appealing. Good work!

  5. White scraps do disappear quickly around here too--but I have very little pink ones! This will be a really sweet baby quilt. Yes, everyone does seem to know the baby's sex these days, but there are still some surprised parents, I think :)

  6. Pink is the MONOCHROMATIC color of the month with Judy L, too... Looks simple and fun! I tell people there is only one good surprise left in this world and they spoil it finding out.

  7. I don't have very many white scraps either. Your pink/white baby quilt is going to look terrific!
