Last month our color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge was blue, and for August we are working with light neutrals. It was a lucky bit of serendipity that I had pulled out my shirt stripe blocks, because they contain plenty of blue stripes plus lots of white/cream/light fabrics. I spent one weekend cutting tons of triangles from shirt parts, and have been putting them together into blocks since then.
Right now the design wall is filled with 6" and 9" blocks. I still have more 6" blocks to finish off, plus lots of little 3" blocks. They will be joined together in a random manner rather than in rows by size. You can see that some of the blocks are each made from a single fabric, and other blocks combine two fabrics. Here are couple of my favorite 9" blocks. Each of them uses both sides of a single fabric, giving a subtle difference in lighter/darker stripes. (It's a little easier to see what I mean in the grey block rather than the light blue/peach block.)
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
