Scrappy Saturday

Orange was the RSC colour last month and I made another sewing machine block for my collection. This is a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop and I tried it in the 6" size this time. Each block has 16 pieces to fit together like a puzzle. So FUN!

You can see my aqua block that turned into a mug mat here. And my blue sewing machine block jumped into a round robin project. So although I have made several sewing machine blocks, they keep disappearing from the RSC project box!

I also made a light green machine in anticipation of October's colour and here is my machine collection on the design wall. Purple is a 3" block, and orange and green are 6" blocks. There is also a 12" pattern but I think that's too big for me! I love these blocks and will continue this project into 2022.

I also added a few orange blocks last month to other RSC projects... a few more waffle blocks and one Easy Breezy block. I can't seem to stop sewing these Easy Breezies even though I have more than enough for a quilt. It's not logical or explainable but they continue!

And I felt like making a few more mini arrowhead blocks for that collection. 

I'll be happily digging into the light green scraps this month since it's one of my favourite colours!
Linking up to the weekly RSC party


  1. Wow! You have a wonderful selection of ORANGE scraps represented in these blocks, Kathy. I want to come play in your scrap stash!! :o))

  2. Those sewing machine blocks are lots of fun! Whenever I see yours, I want to make one, but haven't tried it yet. Lots of great blocks in your post this week, Kathy!

  3. Great orange blocks. This rainbowy year is certainly zooming by quickly.

  4. Cute little sewing machines, so neat.
