Scrappy Saturday

March is the month to use up your red scraps over at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge . I have a lot of red scraps because I am currently working on 3 different red quilts; Broken Dishes, Aurifil BOM and 150 Canadian Women.
This week I used a few tiny red scraps on two different projects:
1) I have been sewing tiny double nine patch blocks for my Omigosh quilt for a long time. This week I tried my first alternate block which is a shoofly variation. It is so adorable and I really can't wait to make more of these. 

Here are 4 of the red blocks ready to add to the collection. I was really happy when I saw how these blocks are going to work together.
This is going to be such an epic Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt!




2) I also sewed a little birthday cake for Temecula's 10th anniversary. They have shared so many wonderful projects over the years, and I wanted to be a part of their anniversary celebrations. So I made them a cake to become part of their signature quilt!
Click here for the pattern. You still have lots of time if you'd like to make a cake for them!

Your Omigosh blocks look fabulous! That will be a spectacular quilt someday. Reds look great.

A red and white scrappy quilt is awesome. I also like the shoofly variation block. Your quilt is going to be a classic.

I love the way you are making this quilt...tackling one block, one colour at a time. This is an epic project!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

I have said so many times that I was going to make the OMG quilt I'm beginning to think it doubtful that I will ever get started - but I do love it and your blocks are terrific

Mari said...

I agree that the block is adorable! "Epic" is the right word!

Loving those Omigosh blocks...and partnered with the shoo fly...they are going to make a great quilt.

I agree. Your OMG is sure to be an epic RSC quilt!!

EPIC indeed! It is so dang cute, and I'm sure there will be several of us storing up that idea, LOL. Beautiful!

Love that OMG!! And I will continue to love YOURS, since I'm trying very hard not to start one of my own...

I love the shoo fly! I couldn't convince myself to make the tiny four patches, but they do look so lovely.

Your red and white blocks are wonderful, Kathy! And what a great idea to make the cake in red and white, too. I'm getting inspired to make a red and white quilt!

These are delightful! You're lucky to have plenty of scraps ready to use.

I love when you can get to the stage of putting something together to see how it is going to look... and, my oh my... it is going to look FINE!!!

Love the red blocks. Someday I might have to do Omigosh. I love every quilt I see of that pattern.

Ariane said...

Wow! I just love your blocks so much!!

Sally Trude said...

I love your lively background fabric choices. My OMG pieces are in a bin...punished for their imprecision. I'm quite impressed with yours...especially because you don't typically work in such a large scale.

How fun = and the cake - I love it!

Nell's Quilts said...

Love the Shoo Fly variation and it is the perfect compliment to the omigosh blocks. This will be a stunning quilt.

Cathy said...

I just love the Omigosh quilt but I'm afraid that's a little too small for me and I like small blocks!

Kate said...

Beautiful Omigosh blocks! That's going to be such a gorgeous quilt, but those blocks are oh so tiny!
