Scrappy Saturday

In spite of feeling under the weather this week, I did enjoy digging around in some scrap bags and catching up with the Sewcialites blocks. In this quilt along there are 3 size options and I am sewing the 6" size.

My plan is to follow the colours of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, but this month we are using brown scraps and I just couldn't force myself to do it! So I veered slightly from that, using teals instead because that's the scrap bag that attracted my interest. 

This is block #4 called Flirty by Chelsi Stratton. It was an easy sew - just 3 squares and 6 HSTs using scraps that my friend Jackie gave me.

Here is block #5 called Empower by Carrie Nelson. Now this is something I could dig my quilting teeth into! There are 48 pieces in this 6" block!

I really want to challenge myself to make it in the 3" size - just for fun! Maybe that desire will pass if I distract myself with other projects?!?

Here are my first 5 Sewcialites 2 blocks on the design wall. It's a very odd collection of colours, but wait until we get back into the full colour rotation at RSC and it will all come together!

Linking up to the weekly RSC party at Angela's

Your collection of Sewcialites blocks is off to a good start. I like the variation in shades in your Flirty block!

Sorry to read that you are still feeling unwell, this has been hanging around for a while, it seems. Luckily you could get a few blocks made, that must have made you feel a it brighter.

What a great idea to do double duty with the Sewcialites BOW and RSC. I agree Empower would be a great block to feature scraps. I'd be tempted to size it up either to a 9" or even a 12" block.

I'm trying a big project in RSC colors this year. Slow start, though. I'm only planning out my planning sheet.

I really love your teal block. The colour placement is very soothing to the eyes. Just lovely. Block #5 reminds me of the 365 Ultimate Sampler challenge with its hundreds of 3" blocks. I believe there was one like that so, go for it and enjoy! ;^)

Your blocks are looking great, and I like the rainbow plan. I've made my 9" and 6" blocks today, but haven't tackled my 3" version yet. It kind of scares me! LOL
