The color prompt for July for the RSC is blue. That worked out well for me as I was just finishing up my patriotic Welcome Blanket Project quilt. So my first blocks are in darker blues and patriotic prints.
As it turns out, I have lots of blue scraps. They are about evenly divided between these darker hues and lighter, brighter blues.
|Hmm, I seem to have photographed the some of the blocks twice!|
So far there are only the two 16 patch blocks. I bet there are enough patches sitting on my sewing table for at least two more. And of course there's more fabric that could be cut into patches. ;- ) I don't have specific goals or plans for any of these blocks yet, I'm just making them and adding them to my Parts Department for the time being.
|The stars will finish at 8," the other blocks will be 6" finished.|
I've even made up a couple of blocks out of batik scraps.
|These are all 6" blocks.|
Those that have no blue in them I'm counting as my Scrap Happy Day effort for this month. I've been making Scrappy Trip blocks each month up 'til now but just wasn't in the mood this time around.
You can check in with the RSC every Saturday. Scrap Happy Day is the 15th of each month. You're welcome to join us if you're not already playing along. :- )
