Getting Rid of the Blues


The scrap color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is blue.  I've figured out numerous ways to get rid of my various sized scraps this year.  Last week I used up a lot of 2.5 inch pieces. 

I made a Blue Sue to go with my Brown Sue.  Pieces are 1.5 inches. The vintage pattern is from the Q is for Quilter blog. 


In other postage stamp news...I finished a 6 inch postage stamp heart and I finished my 10th blue 7 inch postage stamp block. 


And, finally, I made four 9 inch wonky log cabin blocks from various sized scraps and sewed them all together into an 18 inch block.  Twelve of these blocks should make a nice sized quilt. 

If you are using up some blue scraps join the RSC 2014 Scrap Happy Saturday linky party at SoScrappy.

Wow! Look at you go! Your Sues are wonderful. What a great idea for different colours, because no girl has just one outfit in only one colour.

The Sue blocks are just adorable! And the postage stamp heart looks like a great scrap-buster and perfect for gift-giving.

Those Sues are really cute and the heart block is calling my name for some red and pink squares!

I love your Sunbonnet Sues and postage stamp blocks. 1.5 inch charms are too much of a challenge for me, but it looks as though you handle them with ease.
