Scrappy Saturday


The colour of the month for September for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is pastel blue. I decided that I should first finish up some of my aqua blocks from July, and sprinkle in what I can in the lighter blues. Here are some Carrie Nation blocks that I finished sewing this week. 





I am continuing to practice my applique skills with my scrappy peels block and think I am improving my technique. This is my favorite one so far, with an aquatic theme.





I finished stitching 5 peel blocks, 3 red and 2 aqua. I am working on a third light blue block and might try to make a few in the colours I missed earlier in the year for this project (maybe yellow and green?)

To see what other scrappy quilters are sewing this week, hop over to SoScrappy.

I enjoy your scrappy Saturday. Waiting for QuiltCam later today. It's been a while since I got to watch that. I'll be making my Nabby's Dowry Blocks today. 4 Geese blocks heading NORTH!!!

Your applique is coming along nicely. Love the aqua blocks too. So refreshing.

The aquatic themed peel blocks are just too cute. I've been tempted to try these too. I think they would be more fun than hexies.
