Floribunda (Jacob's Ladder) is a UFO from 2011. These are nine inch blocks and take 3.5 inch pieces. I don't have many 3.5 inch scraps - maybe a shoe box full- so I cut fabrics for these blocks. I'll make a few blocks in yellow and florals in the RSC color of the month and hopefully have enough blocks at year end for a big quilt. After making these blocks I had more purple 3.5 scraps.
Goose in the Pond
Goose in the Pond is another UFO from 2014. Strange that these 15 inch blocks are also on a yellow background (Kona Corn). Since I don't have many blocks made for this UFO I guess that I can mix up that background. We'll see. I've been using my 30s fabrics in this block. I have no 3.5 inch 30s scraps so I cut into yardage to make these blocks. And after I made these blocks I had some more purple 3.5 inch scraps (and 1.5 inch scraps I put into the box for another 30s UFO that takes 1.5 scraps).
After I made Floribunda blocks and Goose in the Pond blocks and pulled out any purple pieces from the 3.5 scrap box I cut pieces for my Glitter blocks and made some of those - my new RSC project this year.
Snowballs, Bow Ties, Strips
From the remaining 3.5 inch scraps I made some 3 inch snowballs and some six inch bow tie blocks- new RSC projects for this year. I also cut a few 3.5 inch squares (not shown) from the remaining small pieces to later be used in a donation quilt and if the scrap was less than 3.5 square then I sewed it into a strip as shown on the right. Use to be determined later.
And that ends the purple 3.5 scrap edition.
