I did well for a week away from home. I had the apples cut out and a little bit sewn before I left for Victoria. Today I worked on getting them done and the photos for my post. I did not get all my red done.
Today we were to start on our Multi coloured scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017. I decided to get a few prints with a hit of Red and other colours and call that my Multi coloured blocks for today. I love the Green and red apple core block, that fabric is kind of a ugly that I like. Then who would not love the bird fabric.
This is a Red sample block all done by hand, well I was on holidays. I did it using English paper piecing and then appliqued the to the background.
Lady bug Red sampler block.
Another sampler block
I have added today's scrap challenge post to Soscrappy. Take a look at what the others have done too.
So sometimes I have taken the time to put all the blocks from the month up on the wall all together. I just love to look back at these photos but they take time to put it all up. This month I could not fit it all but most is up there. I am missing some Maple leaves and nine patches, just not enough room.
I got this many Red blocks done this month!
- Nine patches - 83
- Strawberries - 3
- Tulips - 31
- Butterflies - 18
- Apples - 19
- Apples cores - 12
- Maple Leaves - 9 plus 6 need ironing - 15
- Sampler blocks -3
- Lantern block -1
- A strip set to add to 2nd Time Around but need to work on that more.
Tonight I am working to get a few more Maple Leaves done. 6 more to iron and maybe a few before midnight.
Then I need to move on to the real bin of multi coloured scraps. I have no idea what I will make. OK a list of a few ideas.
- Slab blocks with some Canadian fabric, I need 18 more but some could be different colours
- Book cover
- Small purse or bag
- I have Pineapple log cabins blocks to work on and they have some multi coloured fabrics and use many many colours.
- room to think of more.....
