Scrappy Saturday

Major progress was made with the red scraps this week. I finished another Mad City Mama block (pattern from Bonnie Hunter's book Adventures with Leaders and Enders). 
Red was a fun colour to play with and I had many prints with little graphics that I could fussy cut. 
As soon as I took the photo, I could see that I forgot one of the light triangle corners. But it was easy to add in, and voila... here are the 8 blocks on the design wall.

WOW that's a lot of scraps!

Only one more block to go. 
What colour should I add?
Brown?
Gold?
Grey?
Lime green?

To see more scrappy red projects, hop over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link up.

A black and grey block in the centre could look good or a tan and light brown could also look good in the centre. Or would you consider a rainbow block to go centre stage?

Kate said...

I like the lime green thought. Beautiful blocks!

Wow! You must be all out of scraps by now!! LOL 😂. I am partial to lime green for the last block.

I LOVE these Mad City Mama blocks! Oodles of scrappy goodness!
I vote for black & grey for the final block (or what about white/cream/beige?)

Ivani said...

These blocks are for sure a scrap buster. They will make an interesting quilt. Very well done Kathy!

Deb A said...

I'm thinking lime greens! Great job.

Kristin said...

Those blocks make me so happy! I vote for lime green.

Missy Shay said...

I think lime green would be perfect!

Deanna W said...

Lime, lime green of course....can't see you doing any other colour!

Marie said...

I vote for either gold or lime green. Lots of fun scraps in there!

Angie said...

Such a great scrappy block! Lime green would definitely add some zing!

Cathy said...

Fantastic block choice for an RSC quilt!!

Pam said...

I would like to see lime green! I notice from reading the other comments that this is a favorite. Take some of the greens from the other green block and build on those. Gold would be okay except you have an orange and a yellow. You have 2 blues and 2 red/pinks and a purple center. The grey and brown and tan would not be right with the other bright colors. Just my opinion:)

What a wonderful set of blocks...you do have quite interesting projects! I can see either gold or lime green...but I could also see a green-blue block with extra emphasis on the green.

Pamela Arbour said...

I am very impressed. Those blocks look fabulous. I would have never thought they could have looked so good. You know how to use your fabrics!

I agree that lime green is the next color.

Sarah said...

It's got to be lime green! Great scrap busting project.

If you have 4 more center squares, then make 4 more blocks, and have a 12 block quilt instead of a 9 block quilt.

Janet O. said...

I vote lime green, too!
You are the scrap quilt queen!!

katie z. said...

Ooh, I love the idea of black/grey in the center.

MissPat said...

I go with the lime green contingent. It would add spark.

gayle said...

Can't argue with lime green - and it's not even one of my favorite colors! Beautiful blocks, no matter what color you choose!

Ness said...

Lime green to make it pop.

KaHolly said...

Oh, Kathy, I love your rainbow blocks! I agree, lime green would be a great color to add!

Nell's Quilts said...

I love the idea of another bright green block with your pretty Big City Mama blocks.
