Scrappy Blues


Remember this baggie of gifted scraps?  That little bit of blue was sorted and the smaller pieces were cut into 2" squares.  The rest will go into this project, too.


Then I pulled my 2" barrel and found some more blue squares to add to the mix.


For some reason I had stuffed a 'herd' of yellow squares in the bag of lites.  I keep my lite squares by size in baggies that are then put into one of my barrels.


And the chain piecing began!!!  Cute little 9-patch blocks getting ready for the Hands2Help Challenge (see side buttons).


Then I pulled the two large totes - one with off whites and lite prints - the other with all the white on whites.


I have the center 'sashings' made and will add them after my break (gotta get something to eat and feed the furkids).  Then there will be a scrappy border.  You heard it right, a border.  I want to use up those blues and some more of those whites.

I think I should call this one 'Jonas' as it all is coming together during this storm.  Thankfully, so far Jonas has not reached us - but we still have tomorrow.

  2. Here's hoping you evaded the storm! A quilt called Jonas? Sunshine in the Storm might be a better choice for this sweet quilt. Good luck with the finishing!

  3. Lovely scrappy sewing as usual. Hope Jonas doesn't affect you very badly. We've been seeing the snow on our TV news broadcasts, amid our 38-40C. Hard to imagine snow when you are melting. LOL

  5. The storm dodged us - hopefully it missed you, too.
    Nine patches always make me happy - yours are especially cute!

  8. Yellow with blue is always a beautiful colour combination - you just cannot go wrong with it. Plus a little bit of yellow always pulls any combination of colours together - love it!

  11. Jonas is the perfect name, given the weather. Very little snow here in WNY today. I just walked home from a rescue call at 11:30pm and the moon is sparkling on the new, icy snow. It was fantastic! I hope your Sunday weather continues to be nice!!!

  13. this is looking so good, the yellow really adds to it, a scrappy border will work so well too, I had a sort out of my scraps yesterday too but do not have many ad only small amounts of each so still pondering what to do as my next project

  15. Jonas is going to be a reall beauty! Love the bright yellow.
    The storm hype here was a bust....1/4'' of ice and light snow. Hope it is not bad for you.

  20. Great name for the quilt -- and great use of scraps.

  21. I like the color combination. And by coincidence, my design wall project features 9-patches made from 2" squares, too.
