Scrappy Saturday

March is green month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
Since I already had my 1" strips out working on my project for the Small, Smaller, Smallest blog hop happening this coming week, I kept right on going with the little green pieces. These blocks are 5" for the Omigosh quilt. I have all the double nine patch blocks finished (110) and have been working on the alternate churn dash variations.

Speaking of churn dash blocks, I finished sewing my 66 blocks for Barb's block swap and got them in the mail this week. I used 3 dark repro fabrics for my 6" blocks. They really look boring on the wall, but just wait until I add in the swap blocks I receive ... it will be magical! You can see my previous swap block quilts here.


And back to the Omigosh quilt... I just started making these  alternate blocks last March and guess how many I have made? Drum roll please... a grand total of 14! Not really a stellar level of production for one year, but I do think they look awesome and many more will be made this year.
To see what other quilters are making with their green scraps, hop over to the link up at SoScrappy. And the new block pattern for the Squared Away quiltalong is posted over at the Academic Quilter. Can't wait to dig into the scraps this week to make these fun blocks!

  5. I keep looking at your OMG quilt which I have been looking at the pattern of for quite a few years and think this would really use up some of my scraps if I made it in larger blocks - you say these blocks finish at 5" - maybe I would make it if I had them finish at a bit of a larger size. I've made so many quilts with tiny pieces maybe it is time to decide to make this one only larger blocks.

  6. Aren't those Omigosh blocks amazing?! It's hard to imagine working with the tiny pieces that are included in those. I love looking at yours, though!

  7. I still remember when the Omigosh pattern came out years ago and, as I looked at it, I thought 'there is NO WAY IN H&$L'!! Obviously lots of folks (you included) thought differently. HA They are beautiful but for me, still NO WAY!! LOL

  8. All things considered, that really is a lot of sewing. My favorites are those Omigosh alternate blocks. And hats off to you for working on those tiny blocks too!

  9. Adorable green blocks! I’m wearing a sweater the exact color in the upper right block :)
    Your precision in handling these tiny pieces is beyond me, I’m afraid. I was in Barb’s modern swap and can’t wait to see what comes back to me! I’m thinking a lot of blue...a color I seldom sew with so great to get from others!

  14. Your omigosh alternate blocks are stellar. And they will shine even more when you lay them out with the chain blocks.
