Scrap Saturday - Teal and Aqua

I got this much Scrappy goodness done today. 
My slab blocks are being made for the Big Canadian Quilt Bee run by CQA, I am working on more blocks for a 3rd and maybe a 4th quilt that will go to sick kids at Ronald McDonald House in Canada.

I got 5 Canadian Slab blocks done with my teal and aqua scraps. I love this colour. Maybe because it is like the ocean or some of our mountain lakes. 

The slab blocks all have at least one Canadian print in them. I got this teal print with Red Maples leaves just for these blocks. I think I will use some in my blue blocks too. Love it. 

Also in Teal and aqua is spool blocks. The spool blocks are 3 1/2" unfinished. I got the pattern from Bonnie Hunter were you can find the link to her page. It was one of her leaders and ender challenges.  I started spool blocks years ago, but I got some new scraps and there were many teal prints. 

Here is the bag of new to me scraps. One of my quilting customers was willing to part with a bag of scraps for me. I have been doing quilts for her for years ( more then 12 yrs). It is kind of cool to get this bag as I quilted all the quilts she made and now I can treasure and use the scraps. 

I also got another 6 pink slab blocks done too. 

Last week, I got this crazy pink pony print at the rummage bin at the local quilt shop. I just love it. I was too old for magic ponies when they came out but my cousin that is 15 years younger then me had them.


  1. I love all your slab blocks, they look great! Thanks for linking up to Sew Some Love!

  2. Great looking slab blocks - so colorful! Love the Maple Leaf print in them!

  3. Lovely slab blocks; It's fun you have to incorporate maple leaves somewhere. I saw the Little Pony straight away; my daughter had one, more than 30 years ago, and was forever brushing it's mane!

  4. The red mixed in with the teal is magical.

  5. Ooooh that teal and red and the pinks and red are just yummy! what great combos you have chosen...and those little spool blocks vibrate with color...hugs, Julierose

  6. Wow! The red with the teal looks great! Congratulations on using up so many scraps.

  7. Such a wonderful selection of scraps in your Canadian slab blocks and Bow Ties! Keep up the good work.

  8. I love both the red and teal blocks!
