Multicolor 2.5 Scrap Edition


We are supposed to use our multicolor scraps this month in our Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects so this week I dug into the 2.5 inch multicolor scraps.   I made a couple of pretty wild 10 inch Lady of the Lake blocks. 

I made a couple of 12 inch ship blocks with multicolor sails.  Looks like the one on the left is sailing in windy seas but the two ships pretty much take up the makeshift area where I take photos on an old cutting mat covered with batting.     The one on the right is going to go into a baby quilt for a family member since there seems to always be some niece  pregnant these days.   (We have 31 nieces and nephews not counting their spouses).   The rainbow sails boat will go into a donation quilt with some other nautical themed orphans and crumbs and scraps. 


I also made some multicolor four inch four patches to throw into the 4 inch block box. 

And also to be thrown into the 4 inch block pile - some multicolor Happy Blocks plus a couple more four patches that didn't fit in the previous photo.

I am in love with those multi-colored sailboats! How fun would it be to ride in a sailboat of real multi-colored sails!! As usual, I love all your wild fabrics and blocks, but am blown away by 31 nieces and nephews?!!

Those wild Ladies are all ready for a WILD ride on those party boats, a party on the lake for sure. Lots of fun blocks. You don't waste any fabric. Wish I could get in the habit of making extras. This,would be a good month to start.
