Feeling Chipper

Dark Blue is the color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC). I'm not going to make many blocks this month because I made most of my blue blocks when the RSC color was light and bright blue. BUT I did get around to making a few BIG chip blocks (4.5 inch finished)) to use in a free Alison Glass pattern called Sun Print. 

Then I made some small blue chips (3 inch finished) for who knows what reason. Then I trimmed the purple chips I made last month. Then I made some Wonky Hourglass blocks from the BIG Chip corner trimmings.

One thing leads to another, doesn't it?! That Sun Print pattern is a pretty one!

Your chip quilt is going to be spectacular and I can hardly wait to see it!

I downloaded the Sun Print pattern. It will be perfect for my Tula line print fabrics! Your chips are just so striking.

“I’m not going to make many blocks”…. *snort*. You’d be a prolific sewer with a fat quarter and one hand tied behind your back! xo

Beautiful colors. And I admire how you use every last scrap… and then put them into your quilts.

Blue is absolutely my favorite color in a quilt. Don't know why. My current project doesn't have any blue...and I really miss it. Your blocks look fantastic. I especially enjoy that you've used the black/white combo for the other pieces in the blocks. Happy stitching! -Andrea

Jenny said...

Beautiful, and I love how you are using lots of different black and white for the background.

Pat said...

love all your chips...it's a great RSC project!

I laughed out loud at Cathy's comment (or maybe I snorted). You both get awards for using it all up.

Just like potato chips you can’t eat (make) just one! I agree with CathyK. You are one prolific piecer “

Another snorter here! Trust a Cathy to know a Cathy!
I've been enjoying watching your chips as well as stitching my own! Such a lot of fun in such a small package!

Fun blocks! I love seeing all your different fabrics. You have a great variety of black and white prints.

Oh but they are such happy blocks!!! I love blues!!

mangozz said...

I love the deep blues and purples with the black and white backgrounds! I've seen the pattern before and it's beautiful. I just don't have such a selection of colors like you do. I'm not sure why not because I am drowning in fabric.
