It's the last week of sewing blue scraps over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I didn't make much progress on my ongoing RSC projects, but I was surrounded by blue all month with my various projects and I used up a lot of blue scraps in the Quiltville Unity mystery. These measure 1.5" so they finish at 1" in the quilt. So darn cute!
And here they are sewn into some of the sawtooth variation blocks I'm making for the part #3 Unity quilt border. Each little block has 21 pieces for a total of over 750 pieces for just this step of the mystery!
I have been sewing a few little shoo fly blocks because they are the perfect leader-ender project.
Can you see the little HST behind the needle as I sew this row of Unity blocks together? And the Shoo Fly block pieces laid out on the pressing mat waiting to be sewn?
Here are the most recently sewn Shoo Fly blocks fresh off the ironing board. The block on the top left has a Y2K fabric in the centre, (yes I still have some of that and it has to get used up) two blue fabrics from mask making leftovers, and an elephant print from a friend's scrap bag.
I'm also working on my 5th pandemic jigsaw puzzle. It's a challenging Ridley's puzzle that is mostly light blue pieces. I started by completing all the dog names.
And of course trying to finish my UFO of the month. I'm machine quilting this totally blue quilt, so I'm really getting my fill of blue this month!
Hop over to the RSC link up to see what the quilters are sewing with their blue scraps this week.
