Scrappy Saturday Giveaway

It's scrappy Saturday! 
I have been digging in the scrap bags to find some bright greens to cut and sew this month. This is my favorite 3" spool block with the Grinch's eyes in the middle! 
So far in August I have sewn 8 spool blocks, which when joined together give me two more 6" blocks to add to the growing pile. 
The spool block was the Bonnie Hunter leader/ender challenge from 2 years ago (see the post and the pattern here). I was late to get in on the spool craze and started making blocks last summer.

Here is the pile of spools I have made so far.  Can you guess how many 3" spool blocks are in this pile?!? (Hint - remember that each block in the pile is made from 4 spool blocks) 


The closest guesser will win a fat quarter of one of my favorite green fabrics. Good luck!

I'll go 188. They are looking good. Cool Grinch

SandraC said...

I will say 96

My guess is 100 blocks with 4 spools per blocks so 400 spools. Whatever the number, you sure did a LOT of them. It will make such a sweet quilt.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I'll say 144? It's certainly going to be a fabulous quilt when done.

Cathy said...

I'm guessing 336 because I think that is about how many I have! I haven't decided what I will do with mine yet.

I like that Grinch one too! I'm leaving with a smile.

My guess is 128 spools, or 32 blocks. Whatever number, it a lot! They look so pretty in their pile.

My guess is 324. However many it is, it is a great stack of spools.

Nita said...

Hummmm....I will guess 82 blocks. I'm working with scrappy greens right now, too. I have to make two more blocks for a scrappy green quilt top but am running very low on greens and also the scrappy tans for the backgrounds!

Hmm, not good at guessing, but I will say 212 spools. You are tenacious with your scrap challenge projects. I would give up and make small projects with just a few blocks completed. I admire that you keep plugging away and eventually will make nice, big quilts.
