Happy Scrappy Saturday Green #2


I have done 6 lime green blocks for Happy Scrappy Saturday. Check out what the quilt bloggers are doing by following in the link over to So Scrappy.


I like the round blocks the best but I have to play with the units to see what else I can make. Here is the Greek Cross that started the units last month.


Next is the Churn Dash blocks. Not so good if I keep the colour all in one block.


I have done the crumb blocks (or Poverty Piecing ) for the dark green. I have tried the Flying geese crumbs. I have been thinking were did I see these. Now I got it, over here at Jo's Country Junction. She did a crumb along last year and has done some great posts on ideas for crumbs and how to do them. Check then out if you are working on your scraps.


Here is the round blocks with both the Red and the Lime green colours together. I currently have enough units to make 6 Red and 6 Lime blocks. I still have not sew the units into blocks because I can still play on the design wall. I need more colours so I can decide what I should do for a layout.

  5. I like how the lime green scraps work together and am amazed at how just changing the layout gives a totally different design. Lime is my favourite shade of green.

  6. Cathy - I really like the round version of the blocks, too! What size will your finished blocks be? I am contemplating playing with this block this week - thanks for sharing!

  7. What creativity! I will check out the crumb link. I've been keeping most everything just waiting for the idea of how to use the scraps.

    Love your variety!

  10. I'm thinking you might like the Churn Dash blocks more if the centres were white. I do love that green -- gives me thoughts of spring!
