Pink Scrappy Saturday

Pink Omigosh blocks
An Omigosh quilt has been in construction in my sewing room for about 4 and a half years. When the colour of the month is announced at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge I start gathering up my 1" strips and scraps to make some Omigosh blocks each month.
For three years I sewed the double 9 patch blocks and have made 93 of those so far.


I started sewing the alternate Shoofly variation in March last year and have only made 14 of those so far. Here are a couple of other blocks made in the last 2 weeks.
It's such a wonderful way to make a quilt... no pressure, no deadlines, just a leisurely sewing of blocks and putting them into the project box in the closet as they are made. It's fun to watch the pile of blocks grow!
To see more pink Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects being worked on, hop over to the weekly link up.

  1. I also like to make a big quilt this way. One block every week or month...’o pressure, they just pile up and then, suddenly, there are enough for a quilt! I am loving to see all your scraps!

  2. Those blocks are wonderful in pink, Kathy! That's going to be an amazing quilt! I've been enjoying seeing blocks for a quilt pile up over time, too.

  4. that quilt has been on my list for such a long time. I have always wanted to make it - I think the way you are doing it makes it very doable! One day - I don't know I have such a long list of "one day" quilts to make

  6. I love your Omigosh blocks and am impressed with your progress and stick-to-it-iveness! And surprising for me personally is that I love them and am so tempted to try them!

  8. Nice job! This is one of my favorite quilts. You are making lots of good progress. Sometimes I like the making more than the having. Life's a journey. . .
