Seeing all of my scrappy blue blocks up on the design wall today really reminded me why I love scrap quilts. There's nothing better than seeing the variety of fabrics that have been collected through the years.
I have also been working on UFOs that feature blue. I finished the top of a QOV 1/4 Log Cabin quilt, and also pieced a back for it. I showed those in last week's post. This week I pulled out another old UFO, my Dutch Tiles quilt. My sister and I took a class together in 2002, and that is when I started this quilt. I finished making the last few blocks this week and have been joining blocks together into rows. Soon I will begin the slow, zig-zagging seams that join the rows into a quilt top. This photo shows 3 rows of blocks; there will be a total of 7 rows.
Our color for February is pink, and I have started cutting pink squares to become bowties, but haven't gotten any sewn up yet. I still need to cut some pink circles to applique, and I will also choose one or more UFOs in pink to work on after I finish the Dutch Tiles quilt.
Check out all of the terrific scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. On Sunday I will also link up with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than housework.
