Red Scrappy Saturday

It's scrappy Saturday and we are painting the town red this month. Yippee...all of my scrappy projects need some red blocks added.
My first step is to get out the scrap bin and start cutting and organizing. FUN! I am starting with some spool blocks, and will make little piles to sew into all my ongoing projects - Carrie Nation blocks, Alamo star blocks, Palm Branch blocks, and the tiny bits will go into crumb blocks. Can you see the spool block pieces being cut and assembled into piles in front of my sewing machine?
I had to sew up a spool block right away, and then I will sew the rest throughout the month as leader/enders between other projects.
Aren't they fun?!? It's like a memory scrapbook of my previous quilts. I know where each of these red scraps came from!
Hop over to SoScrappy and see what is being sewn with red scraps today!

  5. I feel the same way about my red scrap bin, it's a collection of all the red quilts I've ever made. I have a couple of prints that are in every red quilt I've made. Enjoy your red month!!
