Scrappy Saturday

This week is the 4th anniversary of my Omigosh project, so I had to make a few more blocks to celebrate! This is one of my multi-decade projects. 
Last month's colour was orange, and October is pink month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Finally I had a chance to play with my tiniest scraps to make a few more Omigosh blocks.


The grand total of blocks is: 

87 double nine patch
8 scrappy shoefly

After 4 years of adding to the pile, I'm almost half finished the block production. See what I mean about it being a multi-decade project?!?!

Love it! I've just recently gotten it into my head that I need to make one of these as well but it will have to wait for a decent start until the New Year - too much else on the go. Love the tiny, tiny blocks and totally understand why its a multi-decade project.

Your pink and orange blocks are lovely. This isn't a race to the finish. What a great quilt that you can get decades of enjoyment out of it.

It takes a while to make so many tiny blocks. It is totally worth it in the end though.

This is going to be a stunner--and you are an extremely patient woman!!!

What a great collection of little, bitty blocks. I love seeing that pile grow.

That quilt is on my to-do list - tiny blocks, years of block-making? Yeah, I'm all over that!
I love seeing your progress on it! Beautiful blocks!

You are so ahead of me with your blocks. I just have a handful of tiny 9 patch's stitched so far. Not even a full block has been made.

Angie said...

Wow - it doesn't seem possible you've been working on Omigosh for 4 years! It's going to be an amazing quilt when you finish!

what a wonderful pile and keep going! I bet now that you got the pile out, you might want to make a bunch just to get ahead a bit?

This is such a fun project to watch. But oh, those little bitty pieces.
