Scrappy Saturday in neutrals...

Here are my two scrappy pinwheel blocks for the neutral month.

I think all but one of the fabrics would qualify as 'neutral' with one being a brown. Now that project is crossed off the list for the month. That leaves the Birds in the Air blocks for next week. I'm still thinking on those....

I also got one of my Quilt Square Along blocks done.

This one was pretty quick although I ended up with some colors together that I had not planned on when I laid them out late one evening this week. Oh well, it is put together and once the whole quilt is done it will not be that noticeable. I could easily see this block doubled in size for a 24 inch block and then make six of them for a nice sized throw.

That leaves the boy's quilt. No progress on this yet. I need to grab the stack of blue fabrics and cut a bunch more of the 2.5 inch squares so that I can finish the friendship stars and make the other 9 patches. I think I needed 9 of the stars and 8 of the nine patch blocks but I'd have to go check my notes and probably lay out the quilt again and do some calculations. I have a feeling I will be making a bunch of letters to go around this quilt as we are working on letter recognition now so it will be a little learning tool.
I'm linking up on Saturday with SoScrappy's blog for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge of 2012. Go on over and see what everyone else has been working on.

  1. Very nice! I just finished some blocks. I'm not good with these colors. I'm more of a bright colors person.

  8. Super pinwheels. I like the idea of brown as a neutral. Your other quilt block is pretty too.

  9. Your neutrals turned out great! When I layout the blocks for a quilt top I am always so certain that I have it arranged correctly but after sewing it together it always looks different.
