RSC16 - March - Purple & Yellow


I went digging for purple scraps - where are they???  Well, I forgot that I did my purple blocks in January when it was blue with a touch of purple.  So I only had to do my little yellow ones.  I managed 22  little 9-patches out of my barrel, which is starting to look like it has a dent in it now.



Then came the bitty log cabin blocks.  These don't eat up a lot of scraps, but they are so fun to make.



And adding more to my spools.  The scraps for the spools and cabins came from the little red basket I am trying to empty for the 'scrap challenge' (see side button)...............


  
this is what has been processed into my scrap fabric system after completing the blocks.  3.5", 2.5". 2" and 1.5" squares for the barrels.  There was a piece to go into the yellow FQ tote, and some strips for the string tote.

Sewingly Yours,

  9. Lots of very nice yellow projects. At first I did not recognize the spools because I saw the black and tried to figure out which block it was...duh! A very nice contrast there.

  10. Way to go on the scrap processing! I spent last year and the year before completely catching up on my scraps, and I love how easy it is to deal with them once a month now.
