Scrappy Saturday Wrap-Up

It's a new month and a new color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  Angela has challenged us to use our bright blues, or in her words - sapphire blues - this month.  On top of that, I spent the earlier part of the week playing with last month's color - green.

The scrappy Trip Around the World blocks (from Bonnie Hunter's pattern) will be an on-going project.  I've got a big stack of strips ready to sew together, so I'll keep making these throughout the year.

Digging through the strips and strings from the month gave me enough for some wonky log cabin blocks.  I'll be glad to see the end of some of this dark green fabric!

This morning I started playing with blue fabrics.  One bright blue house and some scrappy blue spools were soon added to the collection.

As for the New Orleans House Project, bright blue does not seem to be all that popular as a house color.  But doesn't that front porch look like a great place to relax and sip lemonade?

If you love blue, then be sure to stop by and see what other blue scrappy surprises are on display at SoScrappy's blog!


  1. Great job on finishing up those dark greens. The new blues look like they are already having fun. I wondered how many blue houses you would be able to find.

  2. I pass a blue house every day... want me to take a picture and send it to you? Love your blue house and those green scrappy trips are wonderful.

  3. Your blue house and blue spools are beautiful. The dark green blocks will make a great trip around the world quilt.

  4. I have to say that I so look forward to each of your colour-of-the-month-houses-about-town tour...and each of your own fabricated houses.

  5. The green blocks are wonderful, but the blues pop off the page! Love your fresh and pretty! And of course I love both house versions...the colors are so inviting!

  6. You have so many great looking projects going. I love all your Scrappy Trips blocks & can't wait to see them together.

  7. Love your green blocks. Happy scrappy house, spools and blue home, too. This is going to be a good month, Angie :D

  8. You found a house in my favorite color!

    Your blocks are quite nice.
