Scrappy Saturday - Green and Yellow

I made a few more spools for my block collection, even though I said I wasn't going to make any more of these blocks this month. I just couldn't resist cutting up the scraps and sewing a few!  There is such a pretty variety from bright sunshine yellows, to orangey yellows, to brownish yellows. I love these scrappy blocks and the range of light background scraps I have found to use up.




I also finished up a few more pumpkin seed blocks. I hand appliqued the seeds and sewed together 5 green blocks from last month, and 2 yellow blocks from this month. 


I also sewed up a 6" green scrappy wonky star block that I had cut last month.

Lovely collection of spools you have there Kathy. I have found that I don't really have a large range of shades in yellow - mostly fairly pale one or florals. Nice colour to work with though. Must start collecting a few more.

What a great collection of yellow scraps you have! Nice shade can be hard to find. Great progress on using some of them up though. Such a tough balancing act.

What a good way to sew spools! I have not seen that method before, but I really like it. The pumpkin seeds look quite good too. A good week!
