Scrappy Saturday

It's scrappy Saturday at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. June's colour was aqua and July's colour is red, so I got to work making four more Maverick Star blocks from the pile of scraps on the cutting table. The red star was made from the mitered ends of the binding strips of Red Repro Broken Dishes, pieced on a 2.5" strip left over from the Square Dance blocks
The teal scraps are from the scrappy improv quilt I'm working on. It's so rewarding to clean the scraps off the cutting table by turning them into useable blocks. They will join the star block collection that were seen on the design wall last month - click here.

Making blocks from the scraps of current projects? Wow! That is quite impressive and sounds like a wonderful way to "clean up" after each project.

Very effective process, use the scraps before they get put away to make the month's blocks. Very pretty blocks!
