I started my scrap busting this week with an over flowing box of mixed up scraps. I had rushed my cleaning back in December and all scrappy bits were dumped in this box. I had added to it a few times, to the point I could not close the lid and parts were falling out. It was getting in the way.
This week I sorted it all by colour and put each bit in the colour box. I am more ready for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2018 now.
I have linked up today's post with Soscrappy. You can go see more about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and the other great projects others are starting on for the year. You are never behind, you can start at any time, and use up the scraps.
In the scrap box there was a stack of 2 1/2" squares and triangles, in medium to light blue. So in the very last days of January, I used them to make the sampler blocks in the 10" size. You can find out more about it at Sampler 2018 at Soscrappy. There are a few different sizes that could be done. I still might do a smaller size block too.
The block name for January is Red Cross. I will say I really thought about doing the center in Red. My Grandmother sometimes knitted for the Red Cross. I might go back and make one Red Cross in red.
I used some 30 prints to make this one. Most of the lighter blues I have are 30 prints or sky colour.
I got 3 blocks done before the end of Janaury. Now on to February and the new colour is ....
I love purple.
So I got the 4 rows on the left sewn together yesterday. The 4 rows over on the right were done back in December as part of the getting some stray colours done. I am planning to use these strips to make Honey Comb blocks. Now I can cut out the hexagon parts I need for each block.
Now to go sew more purple scraps into something fun. I think I will check out the new sampler block for February.
