October's Five (tiny) Tuesdays

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge for October was to use up dark scraps like browns, blacks, and grays.  I found lots of great scraps to use for Tiny Tuesday blocks - and there were FIVE Tuesdays in October!

Tiny Tuesday block one:  Walking in the Dark 
I had some scraps from the black and gold quilt I'm making for my son Andrew, so I put them to good use!

Week two:  Geese Circle
I used some scraps from a recent Halloween quilt for the second Tiny Tuesday block.  The center square is supposed to be light gray, but there was a perfect skull begging for fussy cutting, so that became the center instead.

Week three:  Jacob's Ladder
This is the base pattern for my son's quilt, so just for fun I made a Tiny Tuesday version.  The pepper fabric has been in my stash for years, and I enjoy using the scraps as often as possible.

Week three:  I Love Chocolate!
I forget the name of this block, but I used some scraps of chocolate bar fabric.  The block was kind of boring with a blank center, so I cut out a chocolate-dipped strawberry and appliquéd it.

Week five:  Cornerstones
Happy Halloween!  These scraps were from a baby quilt I made for my niece, who was born in October.  That "baby" just turned 16 and got her driver's license!

My other Rainbow Scrap projects are on hold for the time being.  I need to focus on getting the black and gold quilt finished so I can give it to my son as soon as possible.  Once that is finished, there are RSC projects calling out to be completed!

Linking up with other scrap lovers at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge link-up.


  1. Those are fun blocks, Angie! Of course, I love the chocolate one - such fun fabric!

  2. Oh, those blocks are so cute! My favorite is the chocolate block - I’ve had that pattern tucked away on Pinterest for awhile. But they’re all so fun - fleur-de-lis, Halloween, and peppers. Great blocks!

  3. I did a double take on the strawberry/chocolate block. All of these novelties are so fun. Great little blocks!

  4. Omg these are so great! love the skull and Halloween print! I'm reading an Anne Rice novel and I love learning about New Orleans.

  5. What fun memories these TT blocks hold. Best of luck on working thru your project list, Angie!

  6. Great blocks!! I really like that Jacob's Ladder...hugs, Julierose

  7. Love all your blocks, so many memories in these bloks. Love the fussy-cut skull.

  8. Great blocks as always. I think we all loved the skull.

  9. All your October Tiny Tuesday blocks are great! I had some other projects taking center stage, so will finish up this week.
