Some Blue 2.5 Inch Scraps


Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2015 color of the month is blue - not light, not dark, but otherwise blue. 

This week I used up some 2.5 inch pieces. 

I love the Kaleidoscope block so am making another quilt with the block again this year.  Except this year the block is 8 inches finished and I'll just use the color of the month to make my blocks.  Corners will be solid color.   If I try to make 10 blocks each month I should have enough for a good sized quilt come year end. 



I also made some  6 inch Pentland Crackers from my blue 2.5 inch scraps.  I was looking for ideas for 2.5 inch scraps and then, lo and behold, Nann  (member of the Block Swappers Yahoo Group) decided to have a Pentland Cracker swap.   Since I'm a sucker for swaps ( I like to receive snail mail, I guess) I decided to join in and just so I have enough blocks to make a quilt at year end I decided to also make this one of my RSC 2015 blocks. 

Got Scraps?
Use them up and  then show off each ScrapHappy Saturday at the RSC linky party. .

Oh, and I apologize if you have left me a comment on my last couple of posts and did not receive a reply from me.  I've been sick and unable to drag myself out of bed to go to work (nice use of vacation time, huh?), read emails or sew (well couldn't have done that anyway since my sewing machine has been sick too), . I think everyone brought their cooties ( I said bring cookies, not cooties)  to my house on Christmas and left them here.   All is well now.

Great blocks! You always come up with the most interesting blocks. I don't think I have ever heard of the Pentland Cracker block.

This kaleidoscope quilt should have such a different feel to it. I like the solids in the corners. Lovely cracker blocks. The variety in the blue fabrics is quite spectacular.

Beautiful blocks! You'll have two fun quilts by the end of the year.

Some great blues here and wonderful block.

Wonderful blocks as always. I am a bit worried about that print with the cats in red hats and scarves. I think that's the definition of cooties.

Your blocks look great! I really like the kaleidoscope ones. I am joining RSC for the first time. I hope you feel better and thank you for the inspiration!

I love both of your projects! So pretty. Your blocks make the blue sparkle.

Great projects! Glad you are on the mend... maybe a wall hanging for the door next Christmas to leave the germs at home? Hugs.

Love these two projects - you're going to be busy!

Looks like you've got two great projects underway for 2015. Sorry to hear about the cooties. Sometimes sharing isn't nice.
