Scrappy Saturday

It's the last week of sewing up the green scraps over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
I made a Palm Branch block using some  dark green scraps (since I had already sewn a bright green block). This free paper pieced pattern is from Quiet Play and is still available if you want to give it a try. 

That brings the grand total of Palm Branch blocks to 12!

I do enjoy having a paper pieced scrap project to work on every month, so I think I'll keep going with more of these.



I also sewed a bunch of green spool blocks as leader/enders. What a wide  variety of greens! 







Then I joined four spool blocks together in similar greens to make a 6" block. 
I just love the variety of backgrounds too! 

To see what other quilt bloggers are sewing with green scraps this week, hop over to SoScrappy.

  17. Lots of great green blocks. I should try your idea of sewing my spools into 4's. I have a draw full of spool blocks. Not sure what I want to do with them yet.
