Scrappy Saturday - Black

I have been sorting through my black scraps this week for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The biggest challenge for me in using up scraps is getting them into useable sizes for specific projects.


You have no idea how long it took me to organize this!

There are piles of cut pieces ready for several different projects - a finished pumpkin seed block plus 2 more prepared for hand applique, a pile of leader/ender 3" spool blocks, some 1" strips for Omigosh, and some pieces for Carrie Nation blocks. That's a lot of black and white fun just waiting for me to sew my way through this month!


This week I sewed three Carrie Nation blocks and finished a red one from August, and liked them so much I am going to get them all out and put them on the design wall for Monday's post.
Check out more blog postings at SoScrappy to see what other quilters are making with their black scraps this month .

  1. It really does take some time to find just the right project for each little bit, but it is SO satisfying to see the finished product. Your blocks are looking just adorable.

  2. Love the Carrie Nation blocks. I keep telling myself that I need to get handle on my scraps, but it's too much fun to just sew and let the scraps fall where they may.
