This week for the RSC I worked on my blue 4.5 inch scraps.
At the end of the year when I was taking stock I found some scrappy chevrons I think I made during RSC 2013. I don't think I had many 4.5 inch scraps until this year so I've decided to resurrect this project. I made one 16 inch chevron.
I'm making geese this year. I use the easy angle and companion angle rulers to make these. I tried them out last year when green was the color of the month. I decided that if the color of the month was a primary color then the geese sides will be secondary colors and vice versa. I'm not sure what I'm going to do for final layout. I have plenty of time to think about it.
I also made these, for want of a better name, fractured units. Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession has many different layouts for these units. I didn't see the one I happened upon on the right in her books but I'm thinking I kind of like that. These are easy peasy units to make so I'm sure by year end I'll have enough for a couple of quilts. If I had short pieces that was at least 4.5 x 5 I used them in these units.
And then I have the 4.5 inch block kitchen sink pile - a few HSTs left from the chevron, a few 4.5 inch squares (both blue and neutral) and anything less than 4.5 inch square was sewn into a long strip. I'll have fun with all my different sized strips at the end of the year. And this might be the year I do something with that 4.5 inch kitchen sink pile...the sink is getting full.
I think that's it for the 4.5 inch blue scraps.
I know you don't remember when I said last week that I had saved a few long 2.5 inch scraps for this week so I won't ask if you remember but this is what I did with them - Interlocking Chains - a fourteen inch block.
Got Blue Scraps?
Dig them out, sew them up and show us what you've done with them each ScrapHappy Saturday.
