Scrappy Saturday - brown started

It is brown month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge
I just finished machine quilting a brown quilt for a friend, and she is going to share some of her awesome brown scraps with me, so I'm looking forward to that.

I had a cutting frenzy this week and organized a lot of little batik bits for more Alamo Star blocks.

I had a wee bit of time with my brown scraps and so far have sewn 1 brown spool block and 4 Alamo Stars.
And I also finished up all the black blocks I cut last month...7 more spool blocks, and 3 pumpkin seed blocks.

To see what other quilters are sewing with their scraps, hop over to SoScrappy.

Busy beaver!! Love the orange peels of black on those beige backgrounds...they look antiqued!! Isn't it fun and relaxing playing in the scraps!

Do you ever run out of scraps? Mine breed in the basement... I love watching your scrappy projects progress each week. Thanks for sharing.

I like the splashes of color in the brown Alamo stars.
That cutting board covered with fabric looks so familiar. Did you take that photo at my house? : )

Got to agree with Cozy Quilter... mine breed in the basement too. Is it from leaving them alone in the dark? I'm determined to make more scrap quilts to dwindle down my pile. Love seeing your projects ...lots of inspiration.
