Multicolor Scraps 3.5 Edition


With my 3.5 multicolor scraps I made 10 Glitter blocks...


...11 six inch bowties...

...and 15 three inch snowballs.  Well, maybe 14 three inch snowballs and one for the orphanage (orphan block box)  because the last one with the sitting cat measures 3.5 x 4.   Who put 4 inch scraps in my 3.5 inch scrap box? 

Got scraps?



And what follows is a multicolored collage of what's going on in the garden:

I have not thought about how I want to use my floral blocks but will keep these in mind for when I do get around to it! Thanks for showing the spring happenings in your garden.

Your multi-colored blocks (we have some of the same pansy fabric, LOL! Must be from our CQ days!) are gorgeous. They shine equally with your gorgeous multi-colored flowers!

Sew many florals! What fun. What a great way to use the multi-colored fabrics.

Karen said...

You have been busy sewing multi color blocks. They are amazing.

Lovely florals to work with and you're doing a great job with all of them The only thing that I have to watch for, like in one of the bow ties, is a need for more contrast in size of the prints as well as the color or value difference. This has been a challenge for all of us so far, but a good learning experience. Happy Easter!

You have done a fabulous job with your multi fabrics. I just couldn't seem to get my brain in gear this month for the multi color and you did so great!

Magpie Sue said...

Well done! I especially like the snowball blocks. They could make a fun I Spy quilt!

Linda said...

Another great collection of RSC blocks. Love them all especially the snowball blocks, the lovely flower fabrics show up so well.
