Easter Scrappy Saturday

I have been working on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge some more but this time it is the start of another new quilt. The month of April is neutral scraps. While I used so much on my heart quilt and came up with a different idea.

I have this shoe box of scrapes mostly left over from making Bad to the Bone. Lots of fabric is sewn together and is then cut ends from a strip set. Some strips too. It is a shame to not do something with it all. So I have added lots of neutral but they are not really scrapes because I wanted bigger pieces.

Lots of plain white and then these batiks are added to the shoe box of scraps. I am wondering if I can get 25 blocks out of my shoe box. If I can get enough out of the shoe box I may have to make some kind of boarder too.

I have added this to Soscrappy's Easter Saturday post. Go check out what the other bloggers have been working for this challenge.

I got this far before Saturday as I was at a Dog Agility Trial today. I have to unpack my camera and do some downloading, before I make a post. I am feeling more like bed at this point.


  1. Your blocks are really pretty- almost 3D with the gray.

  2. Delicious scraps! Great block idea, finding a way to use up special scraps is always fun.

  3. Very nice - I like the 3D effect!

  4. hey there...great shadow boxes to feature some exquiste machine quilting? Going to be another stunning finish.
