Scrappy Saturday

red scraps

Not much sewing was accomplished this week, but I did sort out a bag of red scraps given to me by a friend. See this lovely bag of bits and pieces that were headed for the trash? It was the perfect project to focus on since it requires very little brain power.



Taming the scraps
I pressed and sorted and cut to a useable size all the oddly shaped scraps while I watched "Away" on Netflix. I loved the show but there were many tense moments that were eased by the distraction of the task.


Red waffle blocks
Some of the larger pieces might become a slab block but most were cut into useable pieces for waffle blocks and easy breezy blocks.
Here are the red waffle blocks sewn this week. I love these blocks for using up lots of random 1.5" squares.

And here are all the blocks made since the project started in June. Hop over to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link up to see what other quilters are making with their red scraps.

Great blocks and I really love having a bag like that - it is better than a Christmas present

Your waffles are too cute. Nann was a “bad” (LOL) influence on me too - I’m doing the waffles for RSC2021. Unless I start sooner, hehe.

What a great save from the trash to make some lovely blocks. Those waffle blocks are really cute. Might add them as a potential for next year.

Mmm, waffles! Such delicious blocks! Scraps are the best, for sewing or sorting.
