Scrappy Saturday - Red



I am up to my elbows in scraps today, and having a great quilty time at Deanna's. The colour of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Quilters is red. I have been cutting and sewing small scraps into 1" squares or strips to use in my Omigosh blocks. Here is the only red block that got finished this week so far. Just look at all those tiny .5" bits of red scraps in there!



This is what my sewing table looked like when I was sorting my red bits. Some strips are sewn and red to crosscut into pieces for the 9 patch blocks. Isn't that tractor fabric so fun? 




This week Angela hosted a link up for a mid year review of our rainbow scrap projects, but I didn't have time this week to participate. Let's just say I have "a lot", in various stages of non-completion, and that's how I like it! 
You can see some of the projects I've been working on this year here. This is a photo of 56 of my double 9 patch Omigosh blocks on the design wall. More blocks have been made since then, and today I'll be adding to the red pile.
To see what other projects are being made with red scraps today, hop over to SoScrappy.
