scraps of teal

7.5 inches, unfinished block

A decision has been made! Not the best at decision making, but I love the idea of the Rainbow Scrap color challenge going on at
 so scrappy click here!

This month it's teal, and I made four blocks right out of the scrap bins! Something from nothing! Here they are on the design wall next to the scrappy leaves I haven't finished yet.
The block was designed by two women in my quilt guild to be this year's President's gift quilt. All members are making the same block and signing them. They saw something like it in a catalog so if you know the original maker, I will add in their name.
I loved  the modern feel, so I decided it would make a good color challenge quilt. I have made four teal and four pink blocks, and since I entered late into the challenge, I have to do some in blue.

I think there will be black strips between the blocks but that decision will wait for the end of the year when I put them all together! All those yummy colors in one quilt, whee! 
My but quilt making is exciting, isn't it??


  1. Yes, I think your RSC blocks will be exciting when they all come together!!

  2. These blocks are going to come together beautifully. They're making an exciting combination. I love your scrappy leaves too.
