November in my part of the world is very white outside, a good time to stay in and sew. Saturday scraps for November are to be Dark Brown or Black. I am a little behind and I did some more work on my Pink scraps from last month. I had a little stack of bits of pink laying around so I made some poverty piecing blocks, 6 1/2" square. These are fun when you are in the mood to make them.
I had been working on my Honey comb blocks but was just not done enough last week to show them off. To see more of my Honey Comb blocks look here. I found the pattern for this block Here.
So I got 6 block done in pink. I have a few different shades of pink. This was fun.
While more poverty piecing got done this week. I had a few other little stacks of scraps and was in the mood for more, so they got sewn up, Pink, Lime, and some Blue.
Here is the whole design wall.
This will get linked up to Socrappy and the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017.
I have started to sort in my brown box for fabric I can use for Brown honey comb Blocks. I know I'll have another scrap block or 2 to work on in Brown. Then maybe later in the month I will look at the black box of scraps.
Those honeycomb blocks are so nice! I saw there was already snow across the prairies. Fortunately, not here yet!ReplyDelete
Those poverty piecing blocks really speak to me. While I do like the newer modern quilts and of course the access to fabric stores and miles of yardage those poverty blocks (to me at least) celebrate those original quilters of long ago.ReplyDelete
Wonderful scrappy progress and a super supply of BROWN to work with this month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge!!ReplyDelete
love your blocks- I the same kind as you, 6½", but I call them crumb blocks... I like your honey comb blocks, too! I'm going to check out the pattern. maybe for RSC18...ReplyDelete
Your honeycomb blocks are gorgeous! They will make a fun quilt.ReplyDelete
The honeycombs are so colorful. I've never seen the pattern. The mix of pink, lime and blue is very tropical, great to do in the winter. Have a fun week!ReplyDelete
Those Honeycomb blocks are really neat - they will be perfect for a rainbow of colors! I like making poverty blocks, too - just stitching and trimming until you get to the size you want!ReplyDelete
The Honeycomb blocks look like fun - I look forward to seeing more of them and how you put them together!ReplyDelete
Snow? Keep it up there for awhile! Actually, I'm retired now so why do I care?ReplyDelete
I love the Honeycomb blocks. Thanks for the link to the pattern. Looks like you will add some chocolate chips to the mix. Fun!
I need to get into my crumbs and make some in all one color. I haven't done that for awhile.
Love all the scrappiness going on at your house! I also have that honeycomb pattern, have not started it yet, but someday.ReplyDelete
So much scrappy goodness in this post!ReplyDelete
