Scrappy Saturday

The colour for the Rainbow Scrappers this month is red and I have plenty of red action going on in my sewing room this week. With my smallest of scraps, which are 1" squares or strips I made a few more red blocks for the never-ending Omigosh project. The neutral squares are 2". I have been making these blocks for 3 years now, and am hoping to reach the half way mark by the end of this year.

I've purchased this pattern but haven't been brave enough to start. I've decided I have to finish my postage stamp quilt first. I really like the red 9-patches. Blessings, Gretchen

Reaching the half way mark this year?!! OMG! alright! I love that quilt and it is on my to-do list, but after reading your post I am more like ... hmm... maybe not gonna do that quilt, lol. I'll just keep admiring yours instead. ;^)

Three years and going strong. Always great to have a project that uses up those 1 and 2 inch strips.

Tiny blocks sure do take a long time. They are so worth it though -- highly adorable.

I'm making Tiny Nines, too. This is my second year now. Thanks for the reality check, as I had NO IDEA how long this project would go on!!

I recently acquired that pattern from a free box -- didn't realize the size of the blocks till I got it home! Yours are looking very nice.

Love your little OMG treasures. Little takes time... Way to persevere! It is always the littles that get the Blue Ribbons at the fair. They are always amazing. I Made my first block for the rainbow scrap challenge this month. It was so fun. Hoping I can stay on the wagon. But now wondering if I want a whole quilt using red and white with the block I made. And that is why the UFO pile keeps growing! Janita
