Design Wall Monday 1/29/18

A recent excavation through a pile on the corner of my cutting table unearthed a zipper bag full of light blue scraps and blocks from several years ago. I had set them aside at the time because I wasn't happy with the way they were working out. Light blue is our color of the month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, so it seemed like the right time to make another attempt with these. Here are the five blocks that were in the bag. I call them Baby Blue Boxes.

I spent some time over the weekend cutting and piecing more of the rectangle units for the blocks. I completed enough to make ten more blocks, which are now up on the design wall along with the original five blocks (but not joined together.)

If I make enough units for five more blocks, I can put them all together to get a small quilt that would measure around 40" x 50", a good size for a kid's donation quilt. Working on these easy blocks was a welcome break from the tons of little pieces in my On Ringo Lake mystery quilt that I shared last Monday.

I'm linking up to Design Wall Monday at Small Quilts and Doll Quilts, Monday Making at Love Laugh Quilt, and Moving It Forward at Em's Scrapbag. Check out all of them for tons of amazing quilting inspiration!

  1. I've been thinking this could be a good scrap project.

  2. What a great "save" of the half-begun project!

  3. See, the Quilt Gods are always on the look out for way to help us! Perfect timing to unearth those blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Funny how just the right need can make a project that wasn't working fit just right.

  4. For some reason, these make me think of Kleenex boxes. A good get well quilt!

  5. You made a lot of progress over the weekend. I can see the Kleenex boxes too (maybe because ours have seen a lot use of the the last couple of weeks?). Congrats on getting those scraps off the cutting table and almost corralled in a quilt.
