Scrappy Saturday Doughnuts

Aqua Doughnuts
A few teal scraps were sewn into blocks this week. This RSC block project was inspired by the Temecula Quilts One Block Wednesday sew along. I don't know what they are actually calling this block, but it looks like a doughnut to me, so that's what I'm calling it! The project uses up the 1.5" scraps. It's fun to look at these blocks and remember which quilts the scraps came from.

I started this RSC block collection in January, so now there are 4 months worth of blocks. These blocks aren't sewn together yet because I'm not sure how they will be in the final layout. This is how they will look in colour blocks and you can click here to see how they looked last month in diagonal colour lines. I won't decide about the layout until I have many more blocks to play with.

And here's a sneak peak of my project for the Be A Diamond blog hop happening next week. I hope you can stop by and see my project on Monday. Linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge weekly party.

  4. I think they can be called donuts and yours look great! I looked the block up a while back in the Barbara Brackman block encyclopedia and it was originally called The Wishing Ring. Donuts is easier though--lol!

  9. Your doughnuts are delightful. I love that color block setting. But really, you’ve got great scraps and I don’t think you could go wrong with any setting!

  11. Doughnuts sound good to me. I think Temecula called them Cathedral Window Hexagons. I've seen others calling them other things. I've been making them too and think I'll call them Wishing Rings since Karen mentioned that in her comment.
