As I've been working on blue scrappy houses for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month, I couldn't help but have music going through my head from this recording by one of my favorite artists. Piano player extraordinaire Marcia Ball released Blue House in 1994. It's a fun combination of blues, swamp pop and dancehall tunes. I especially like the Day of the Dead iconography on the cover - a very special "blue house"!
This week's New Orleans blue houses are a collage of some from earlier in the month and others I've been saving. I hope we have a month of light blue scrappiness, as I have a bunch more blue houses to share!
My blue scrappy house is inspired by Kaffe Fassett's Blue Paperweight fabric. I just happened to have some scraps handy, as I had used a chunk of it for binding on the Granny Square Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt.
Blue scrappy leader-ender spools were also made this week.
I also managed some log cabin therapy with blue scraps. Since the month doesn't end until next Friday, I imagine I'll have more blue log cabin therapy before all is said and done.
I'm looking forward to seeing what other blue scrappy beauties have been created this month - Saturday is sharing day for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so please join us!
