Scrappy Saturday

It's pink month over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. If you are a quilter with lots of scraps, the structure of this challenge is very helpful to actually sew up your scraps instead of having them sit in dusty boxes and bags for years. There are no rules, you can join in at any time, and there is a ton of inspiration to spark new scrap projects in every weekly linky party.
This is what I am sewing with my pink scraps this week. These are the first 4 block components for my pink Mad City Mama block. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter's book Adventures With Leaders & Enders. I need 2 more of the strip blocks and 3 more of the 25 patch blocks, and will be working on that today.
To see lots of pink links, hop over to SoScrappy.

You never seem to run out of scraps. Have you ever shown a picture of your scrap collection?

Beautiful, cheerful blocks! I'm sorry to say that my RSC has totally gone off the rails. I had to admit that I have too many projects on the go, and one had to be sacrificed

I'm not sure I would have enough pink scraps to make one block--maybe in CW repro pink. : )

Cathy said...

I actually needed to ask a couple of friends to share their dark pink scraps. They were more than generous. I was also given a bag of scraps of all colors. Scraps do not ever run out, do they??
