Rainbow Scrap Challenge - feeling BLUE

I have joined the Rainbow Scrap Challenge that Angela from superscrappy.blogspot.com is hosting.  Sorry I don't know how to do all the fancy links and had to cut and paste the button above - will get there eventually, just not yet.  Anyway I have at least started the challenge which is within my technical limits.
this month's colour is BLUE so i pulled out my blue scraps and started sewing!
Twelve blocks later this is what I have.  They are very random and still have to be trimmed to size.  They will be nine and a half inches.  The problem is that I still have too many blue scraps leftover but I have used up most of the strips so I think I will cut some of the remainder into strips and sew a few more blocks as these twelve aren't quite enough for a quilt.  the cream centres were also scraps and they just happened to be the colour I had 12 of so I will look again and see what other squares I have in multiple colours that I think will be suitable and they will be the next lot of centres.

It is going to be really hot here today so I will be inside in the aircon sewing - today's task is to pin and quilt a gift for my girlfriend who is having my son to stay for a week's holiday in Perth.  He leaves on the 6th so finishing it is a priority.  So now I am off to layer, pin, quilt and then bind - see you!
Happy stitching!


  1. I love your blue log cabin squares! Isn't it fun to see what can come from the scraps? Good luck finding enough to turn it into a quilt.

  2. Gosh, you have been so busy! I'm just now getting to read your blog since we've been away and, wow, you are so productive, so creative, so talented! I hope all is well with you and yours! You are an inspiration!


  3. You've done so many and they look great..

  4. That is stunning...really gorgeous. I think it will be an awesome quilt.

  5. Piece some of the blue scraps for the back of the quilt to use up the rest of your blue scraps. Lovely quilt!!

  6. Nice job with your blue scrap stash!

  7. That looks great! Tanya (Lazy Gal) would be so proud of your unruly log cabin blocks! Definitely a blue scrap win!
