One project needs a border decision (it's going to the UFO closet for sure), one needs a layout decision (probably also going to the UFO closet) and the other one needs complex cutting and I just couldn't organize my thoughts to get it done.
So I started digging through scrap bags, organizing pieces, cutting for scrap projects and finally started to relax. There is just something about the mindless task of organizing scraps that puts my brain into another gear.
The colour of the month at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is purple. It's not a colour I sew with very often but I do have some scraps to work with.

1) uses up ten little 1.5" squares, and
2) it creates an "I spy" effect with all the hidden treasures. Can you spy the cat, the bird, and the teddybear? Just so fun for a kids quilt!
These are fun to sew, and hard to keep as a leader-ender because they keep wanting to be the main project!
Hop over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and Oh Scrap! to see more scrappy projects.
