Red 2.5 Inch Scraps

 This month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge color is red so this week I dug into the 2.5 inch red scraps to make  four 10 inch Crazy Lady of the Lake blocks.  After making these for a couple of years I'm getting close to enough blocks for a large quilt. 

I've also been making eight inch Depression Blocks and those Sprouts for a couple of years. Not sure if I'm close to enough blocks for big quilts now or not.  Maybe I have enough sprouts since I'm not sure how I'm going to use them!   And that little strip at the bottom? I've been sewing all the little 2.5 inch scrap ends less than a 2 inch square into strips. Not sure how I'm going to use those either but I will.

I especially like the Depression blocks, but it will be fun to see all of the blocks come together in various quilt designs!

Lovely blocks. I love how you methodically work your way through your scraps - this week it's the 2.5" strips turn.

I like all your blocks shown here and you are so creatively organized. The sprouts have caught my eye to remember. So many ideas. I have to start using my time more wisely with my piecing. Always enjoy your posts.

Nice work going on here, I'm hoping some of your organizing abilities will
