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.

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