red color blocks from Making A Lather

This week, I worked on the16 patch blocks for the Debby Brown color blocks quilt alongI found this free quilt along with Debby Brown  from Alycia at quilty girl

I didn't have any red 2 1/2 inch squares already cut. So I strip sewed these using shorter pieces. I really have diminished my stash of 2 1/2 inch squares over the last 3 years with the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I used to have 7 velveeta boxes stuffed full. Now, I have 3 partially full.


I've used them in scraptastic stars, scrappy irish ...

color blocks from Making A Lather

The last Saturday in April and the color blue for rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. That means crunch time. I didn't have that many 2 1/2 inch squares in light blue for the color blocks. I "gasp" had to cut a few squares for variety.


I still had other blues to play at making blocks.




I have the green brackets finished for the full stop quilt that Angela is doing. I still need to work on the asterix for blue. I made 5 green ones. They were easy enough if I want more later.



My rainbow projects ...

blocks of green from Making A Lather

 I used most of my green 2 1/2 inch squares to make 16 patch blocks for the Debby Brown color blocks quilt along for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I think I have 3 left. It makes me nervous, and, so, I have to resist the urge to randomly cut more, so, I will have "enough"

I found this free quilt along with Debby Brown  from Alycia at quilty girl. I had started making postage stamps last year for the rsc. and once the gate was opened, I enjoy making 16 patches as well.





Here are the ...

color blocks from Making A Lather

It was time to sort through my 2 1/2 inch strip drawer. The color of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy is yellow. I wanted to make 16 patches in yellow 16 patch blocks for the Debby Brown color blocks quilt along, but, I only had 5- 2 1/2 inch squares to be found. I pulled out the shortest strips and cut squares. I really didn't count.


I had fun sewing them together. I had several repeats, but, they will be in various places in a quilt.

still in the pink from Making A Lather

Even with an extra Saturday in January, I did not get all my pink projects finished for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy. I am using my 2 1/2 inch squares to make 16 patch blocks for the Debbie Brown color blocks quilt along. I am making the blocks each month with the rainbow colors, and, then, deciding which blocks for which quilt at the end of the year. I wonder if a person can ever empty the 2 1/2 inch square bin.



I wanted to get started with full stop quilt that Angela is doing, but ...
