Scrappy Saturday

I am playing in pink land! 
I did a lot of sorting and cutting of scraps this week and have started making my 1" strips into 9 patch blocks for Omigosh. It's slow sewing, without much to show yet... just having fun!
Did you see the pink Dragon Fruit we enjoyed last Sunday? What could be better than pink fruit?!?! I guess it would be better if the inside was pink too - it's white!

Wow 1"strips is tiny! As you say it's going to take time before you have anything to show. I admire your patience!

I'm working on small 9 patches, too! Mine are 1 1/2" strips, which seems crazy enough, but 1"? It is slow going, I agree, but fun all the same.

Wow, what an under takings with 1 inch strips... but everything is pretty in pink, so it will be worth it!
Just a few comments on recent posts... Max is the cutest four-legged guy I've ever seen... what a trooper in the snow! And I love the memory comic you posted some days ago... it hits home!!!

How fun to play with tiny pieces and they look delightful.

Love love pink!

Do you make a set number of Omigosh blocks in each color, or just go until you are tired of them? : )

Lisa said...

Yes it is slow isn't it. When I made mine I was at my monthly quilt group and another lady made a pieced pillow in the same time it took me to make the block. We did all agree though that my block probably had more pieces, just very little ones.

Wow those are tiny strips!! Was the dragon fruit good?

Cathy said...

Sewing one inch strips would be very slow going. Takes a long time to get anything of any size when starting that small. But it sure will be Omigosh fabulous when done.

After just finishing my 9 patches with 1 inch strips - boy oh boy do you have lots of patience! What did the Dragon fruit taste like?

Kate said...

You've got lots of pretty pinks to play with. Looking forward to seeing your finished blocks.

Those are tiny nine patches! How cute!

Cute and Tiny 9-patches. I made some more 1-1/2" 4-patches today. I am trying to not let my Midnight Flight become a UFO. I started last March and it's almost a year old , I hope to finish it and have it quilted by the 20th of next month.

I have never heard of a dragon fruit. It is a pretty colour on the outside. What does it taste like.

Elly D said...

Such a beautiful looking pink fruit! Did it taste as good as it looked? Lots of pretty little pink scraps getting sewn there, looking forward to the completion.

Love the Omigosh. I am thinking of starting to sew mine together. Right after I finish all the "supposed to dos".

Marly said...

The tiny 9 patches are sweet, but I can't see myself making a whole quilt of them. I have so many other things I want to do.
I googled dragon fruit and it is reported as being extremely healthy. I've never seen one, so I will just have to imagine the healthy taste, and all those little seeds. Yours, however, certainly matched your patchwork.

Great to work on Nine patches. Love the pink fruit.
