Saturday Scrappy Blues
Scrappy Saturday this month, we work on the blue scraps. I love blue. I have lots of blue scraps. If I was to make a two colour quilt it would need to be blue. I just love these little blue pin wheels. I got digging in some real old fabric for these blocks. Some of the navy and the real light coloured blues are from back when I worked at a fabric store in Leduc, maybe 15 years ago.
I used some of the smallest bits in the centre block. I just sewed some light coloured to light and dark to dark and then jointed the little rows together. I really did not plan it. To see more on this quilt you can go back to this post.
I have added today`s post to Soscrappy and if you want more information on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2012, go see.
I did not have internet for a few days this week. We had real bad winds. This is one of three trees that came down on my drive way. My husband was away and I had to get a neighbour help move the trees. We also have a building to repair as the winds blow out a wall to our horse shelter.
These are the wild roses on the drive way. We have hundreds lining the drive way. Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses.

Love your blue blocks and wild roses.ReplyDelete
Our area has lots of trees down, too, but almost everybody's power is back on.
Great blue blocks. I am looking forward to the entire collection coming together at the end. Glad you are clearing out some of the oldies.ReplyDelete
speaking of the quilt store in Leduc, spent some time with Paddie and her family at a wedding this long weekend. Love the blues.great blocksReplyDelete
Love your blue blocks - they look so intricate. Yes, you're right, sometimes we do have to stop and smell the roses! (I dropped in from the Rainbow Scraps Challenge again)ReplyDelete
So, I was in Johnson's this past week - buying fabric I didn't really need - when you walked in (I was at the till with my two girls). And since we've never met I was a little shy about saying hello without a positive I.D. As I was driving away, I glanced at your van with the Agility Dog on Board sticker....now I know it was you! You have such a friendly face that I won't hesitate to say hello next time. And when I related the story to my mom later that day, she said, "Cathy Tomm? I know her from when I worked at the post office in the old Rexall!"ReplyDelete
So, since we're practically family....lol....Can I offer you a tea at my place, and a quick scrap swap?
Your blue blocks look so nice - what a great way to use up your scraps!ReplyDelete

Sorry to hear about all the wind damage. Good grief.
All your blues look yummy - I especially like the blue pinwheels! Thanks for sharing the wild roses!ReplyDelete
What a lovely quilt you'll have with all those wonderful blocks.ReplyDelete
I just love your blocks...I always look forward to seeing what you will put in the centers!ReplyDelete
Beautiful blue blocks, looks like you would have had a tough time getting out your driveway, glad it didn't hit your house!ReplyDelete
Love that pinwheel blue block. These are going to look so nice all together.ReplyDelete
