Scrappy Saturday

Don't you just love hidden surprises? Angela mentioned that on her blog today and I have to admit that over the course of the past 11 months, I have found a LOT of little treasures just waiting for a turn at the machine.

I came across a scrap bag this week which I think was given to me by my friend Mrs. Brown... so many little pieces, which generated so many ideas.


First off, there were about ninety 2" squares which immediately became a RSC project. Each month I will make a couple of 16 patches when the colour of the month goes with the jellybean fabric. So here are the yellow and pink blocks. I'll be able to make green, purple, and blue blocks, and this will eventually become an interesting donation quilt inspired by Mrs. Brown's scrap bag!
Linking up to the Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I do love to challenge myself to make something pleasing from scraps I have been gifted. Looks like you have a good plan for the jelly beans fabric squares. Would make a cute Easter table topper, too. :)

That jelly bean fabric is the perfect link for a RSC quilt!
