Rainbow Scrappy Saturday

Saturday, October 10, 2015
Although the color this month is brown, I've made enough brown blocks already.  So instead I worked on my R/W/B Monkey Wrench/9 Patch blocks.


There are 20 of these blocks now, enough for a quilt.  Please see everyone's Rainbow Scrappy Challenge posts at SoScrappy.

This week I pulled 2.5" squares from my box.  I'm tired of those fabrics and will replenish them with new fabrics.  30 16 patch blocks have been made from them this week.


Halfway to enough for my next project, I need 60.  

Its time to start packing up the camper.  Maybe by next weekend I'll be home.

Great progress. Glad you have plenty of brown blocks. Looks like you have a couple of quilts ready for a finish soon.

"Its time to start packing up the camper." The Summer went so fast! You got a lot of sewing done over the summer...now time to set all those blocks together.

Today is so beautiful out..and tomorrow is supposed to be downright HOT! After that the forecast says it's all downhill...I am so not looking forward to cold, ice & snow. But, once I put the canner away there is more time for sewing. :)

Another great group of blocks - they will make a wonderful quilt.

I know what you mean about getting tired of fabrics. I bagged up some strings and strips to give away because I am tired of working with them.

I'm with you on being tired of some fabrics in my scrap bin, but just haven't taken the time to do anything with them again. I need to go through and cut a lot of strings and squares again. Maybe another string quilt will happen then.

Love the monkey wrench nine patches! What will your 16 patches become?

Two of my favorite blocks, monkey wrench and 16 patch. Looking forward to see both of these quilts come together.

Way to go! I too have a few fabrics in my scrap box that I'm a wee bit tired of seeing, most notably a maroon solid. I keep putting it in projects, and there's still plenty to go around.

Hopefully packing isn't too much of a pain. How has harvest been this year?

I like the monkey wrench with the nine-patch in the middle and I really like your scrappy 16 patches, I'm looking forward to seeing these come together in a quilt, such cheery colours.
