Scrappy Saturday

The past week was so busy I didn't get much quilting or blogging done. I have been working on my hand piecing for the quiltalong, and am almost ready to add the border.
And I have been sorting out aqua scraps for my RSC projects. 


Sweet Baby Jayne sews little aqua blocks

I did enjoy sewing some little tiny blocks on my white Featherweight. I love this machine so much and it's just perfect for sewing these 1" pieces. 

Here are the 3" Economy Path blocks for April. 
I am making 4 blocks each month and this pattern is perfect for using up my smallest scraps. Even though they are small, these little gems take at least as much time to cut and sew as a regular size block.


Here are the blocks for the first 4 months of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge year. After all this sewing, this collection of 16 blocks is now the size of a 12" block!! LOL

And speaking of tiny blocks, I've been working on my Alamo Star project so stop by on Monday to see them on the design wall for the first time since I started working on them almost 7 years ago!
Hop over to the RSC weekly link up and see what other folks are sewing with their aqua scraps.

I can't wait to see the Alamo stars up on the design wall. They have always been one of my favorites.

Aqua is the perfect color to stitch on that little white featherweight.

Cute blocks! You’ve got a lot of patience (and good eyesight) to work on such tiny blocks.
