RSC - the last of the pink scraps...

 The last few weeks have been quite busy, with not a lot of time for sewing. I did manage to get some more done with the bag of pink scraps though. 

I took all the strips and cut them to 2.5 ", then joined them up in a jelly roll race style. There was enough there to do the centre of another square quilt top:

Then I cut up the smaller strips made these cute little blocks, they are the same as you get with a disappearing nine patch:

... and now all that is left from that original big shopping bag of scraps is one large ziplock bagful...

My plan for the week ahead is to get the rest of the Sweet Dreams blocks finished, start working on Summer in the Country and decide on one of my many UFO's to work on. 

I've been walking 10,000 steps every day and enjoying the Autumn colours on my morning walks.

Linking up with SoScrappy and OhScrap.


  1. Great work. I like your jellyroll quilt top.

  2. I love the pinks. You make the pretties quilts.

  3. You had a very productive pink month with your bag of pink bits. It looks like you have some lovely places to walk through and enjoy the autumn colours.

  4. What lovely Pink sewing. Love your scraps and the final collection of blocks is gorgeous.

  5. What a great way to get rid of all the scraps! Never thought to cut them all up into 2.5" strips and then sew them together like that. Great thinking! The Autumn pictures are beautiful. My favorite season, for sure.

  6. A great use of some of your pink scraps - I've been doing a similar sort of thing with some of the "stuff" I have.
