Scrappy Saturday

Today the local forecast is for lots of freezing rain, and we haven't seen much of the sun lately. But it's all sunshine and yellow over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

We are being encouraged to use up some yellow and gold scraps this month.  I had fun digging in the scrap bins to find small pieces to use up in my April Squared Away sampler blocks.  This is the 4th block for the sampler and is appropriately called 4X Star.


5" Squared Away blocks

I am making 4 blocks each month for my sampler and these use some of my favourite scraps.The yellow with circles in the bottom left block is one of my favourite Kaffe Paperweight fabrics. I don't know what happened with the top left block... I got really carried away with fussy cutting those flowers which are on a gold background, but I had to cut them so small, they only look pink. Oh well... they will fit into the sampler quilt somehow.

To see what other quilters are making with their sunshiny fabric scraps, hop over to the weekly RSC link up.

  2. I like the pink mixed in that first block! And for a scrappy sampler, I'm sure it will turn out just fine. My favorite though? The yellow lemon slice fabric - what fun

  8. I've been trying to use some fabrics with "interest" in my Squared Away blocks, but my yellows seem be be pretty tame and boring. Guess I need to dig deeper into the stash.

  11. I love your blocks! The pink is perfect, like spring flowers. Are these 10 inches, or smaller?

  12. Lots of fun sunshiny blocks to play with on a not so sunny day. Hopefully the freezing rain didn't cause you any power outages or other problems.
