Scrappy Saturday - Carrie Nation



For the month of December the RSC'ers are trying to finish up some scrap quilts worked on over the year. This week I tackled my collection of Carrie Nation blocks. I decided that I like the on-point layout best.  The chains look a little wobbly in this picture, but once the blocks are sewn together, they will (hopefully) be straight.I also really liked the layout that Katie used for her Carrie Nation blocks - you can see her layout here.



I decided that this quilt really needs some orange and maybe some pink blocks, plus a few more green ones.
So I pulled out those scrap bins and that's what I'll be doing today - cutting scraps to sew up the blocks needed to fill in the missing coloured blocks. And then this quilt could become a finished top by the end of the year!To see more scrappy quilt postings, hop over to Angela's link up.

Another finished quilt in the works. Love the on point layout! Hope you are able to get this one crossed off the list before the end of the year. What a fun quilt.

Those little squares do make some nice lines in the quilt. Have fun playing with your scraps.

I always like how an on-point setting changes the look of a block. Enjoy playing in your scraps.

Rebecca said...

Oh wow. I was thinking I really liked the on point and then checked out Katies layout ad its hard to believe they are both the same block quilt.!

On point is always such a fun option! Love these blocks - they will make a fun quilt :)

Cathy said...

Love it! What have you planned for the setting triangles around the outside?

Chantal said...

Definitively needs more green. It looks good Kathy.

Cathy said...

It's hard to believe you and Katie have used the same block. They are both gorgeous. What a fun block.

Love the on point layout. Like beads on a string. I think your instincts for additional colour are bang on.

Cathy Tomm said...

Great quilt. Yes a few more green blocks.
