I worked very hard on my blue scraps this past week. I can hardly believe this is all I can show you so far for Blue. It took so long to sort and trim all kinds of blue. I had lots of blue, I got carried away and make 4 Bright blue blocks, I still have the darker almost navy colours to do. I also will have the turquoise blues for honey comb blocks because I did not start this till late March.
My design wall has been busy so I laid these out on the ironing board first before I sewed the blocks.
Lots of pretty blue, Some are so old. I made my son a pair of pants when he was 2 out of the blue checkered fabric. He is in 3rd year University now.
Also this week, I worked very hard on this older Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt. I looked back and the brown top left block was the first one I did back in Nov 2011.
Maybe rainbow nine patches as sashing? or a rainbow fabric?
I tried out a few different sashing options. I had planned an olive green but it was dead looking, so dead I did not ever take a photo. Trust me it was not good. Also I tried the triangles on the boarder, no not right either, added to much different stuff.
Maybe Black and White sashing? Oh I kind of like the boarder, I will to make new fabric and lots of it.
Ok, I think this is what I will do. I have lots to do now. I need to make a few more strip sets of colour to make the boarder. I think I will also leave that first Brown block as the top corner, as it was the first block. I have 25 blocks so this quilt will be 5 by 5 and I think around 76" before the boarders are on.
I have added this post to Soscrappy.
I am away at another dog agility trial this weekend. The club I have joined is hosting a trial and I have a job to do as well as run my dog. We are in a heat wave, so stay cool.
