I haven't done much block construction so far this month, but I did get all my prep work done. Having my scraps cut into commonly-used size strips and squares and sorted by color makes scrappy block prep go quickly.
These will become 9 patch variation blocks. I like to lay out a block next to my sewing machine and use the pieces as leader-enders while working on other projects. They go together quickly!
I also cut the parts for two Sugar Bowl blocks. I'm looking forward to assembling all these blocks in a quilt.
Orange bits for 4" Sawtooth Stars. These will be assembled with white background fabric; I have the strips cut, but not the individual pieces.
And for something completely different - cheddar! These parts will become Scrap Jar Star blocks.
I also dug through the orange crumb jar looking for pieces to become Maverick Stars.
I'm hoping to have lots of glorious sewing time this weekend. It's a holiday weekend here in the US, so there should be plenty of opportunity to sew between now and Tuesday morning. My Dear Husband has already announced plans to do most of the cooking, so I'm looking forward to some stitching therapy!
My first stop will be Angela's Soscrappy blog to see what orange fun the other Rainbow Scrappers have cooked up.
