In Search of Some Blues

A new year is here for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and the color of the month for January is light/medium blue.  Angela, our lovely hostess of the RSC and Mari of The Academic Quilter have collaborated on a sampler quilt for us to play with, and I definitely want to participate!  I’m looking forward to seeing the first block, but while waiting this week, I pulled out my blue scrap bin to see what I have.


Awhile back I had cut some of the smallest dark blue scraps into 1.5 x 2.5 pieces for these blocks –


and they are now sitting by my sewing machine, waiting to be sewed into rows as I need them for leaders and enders.  I also started cutting up the smallest light and medium blue scraps for the light blue set of these little blocks.


I also found some bigger chunks that are perfect for making some more bowtie blocks.


I know I need to at least double the number of bowtie blocks that I’ve already made in order to have a good sized quilt out of them, so now there are eight blue blocks!


I like the variety in this group of bowties – solid, print, strips, text, light, and dark!  They will add a lot to my Scrappy Bowtie Quilt!

If you’re a regular reader, you will notice that I had to change from Blogger to Word Press.  I’m not really sure why, but Blogger will let me write posts, and publish them, but will not let me put photos in them right now.  So, I’m going to work on moving my blog to Word Press for right now!  Thanks for sticking with me while I learn the new format!
