Scrappy Building Blocks

It's a new month and a new color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  This month we are challenged to use our light green and lime green scraps.  I have plenty of scraps in that fit the description, so I got to work!

I had enough 1.5" strips to make two 49-patch blocks.  I'll keep making these 7 inch blocks for the rest of the year - maybe I'll have enough for a quilt at the end of the year!

A few more scraps made some HSTs to go in the border I'm planning for the Windblown Wishes quilt.

I made this light green Burgoyne Surrounded block last year.  I looked through the scrap stash and nothing in the lime green family jumped out at me, so I'll wait until we do dark green scraps to create another green Burgoyne block.

All of these pinwheel blocks were an RSC project last year.  I finished assembling them into 9-patches earlier this week.  Next up:  sashing and cornerstones (more pinwheel blocks!).  

For more scrappy inspiration, check out the linky party for the RSC 2018!

  1. I hate to be the one to say this, but is the lower right hand corner nine patch rotated? Love the fabrics! Such pretty green shades.

  3. I really love all those bright pinwheels. I'll think about you today, while I do vintage sewing machine demo's, and make 'Chocolate' TOBE blocks.

  5. Lovely pinwheels! And as far as I can see they are all turning the same way! Enjoy sewing them all together.

  6. Well, I remember your exasperation in January when you found several BS blocks with rotated 9-patches. And I remember that you corrected them, so this is just probably a glamour shot from “before”. And it’s so lovely! The pinwheels are just so happy and so appropriate for blustery March. Have a great weekend!

  8. Such wonderful GREEN blocks for the RSC!! I could have done without seeing that Burgi block, though... memories of a neglected UFO were brought to the forefront. Ugh!! SEW many projects!!! Sigh... All in good time.

  9. Hurray for Burgoyne, even if he does seem to be a bit dizzy. (It's a consequence of being surrounded, right?)
    Those little pinwheels are fabulous! Can't wait to see it all sashed!
