RSC Saturday in blue.....

I've been playing with my scraps .....
I showed this trip around the world block earlier this week. It is hand pieced 2.5 inch squares and this block should finish around 30 inches square.

I also used my 2.5 inch squares to make these 16 patch blocks...... and I'm working on some X blocks to make a scrappy Goodnight Irene Quilt! I have a slew of 4.5 inch neutral blocks cut and ready for more X blocks. I think this will be 5x7 for a block set.


Thank goodness there is one more Saturday this month! I still need to make my card trick block and  cut out the alternate blocks for the Sampler.

Head on over and see what others are working on today. I'm off to work on a rainy Saturday.

  6. Love your TATW ... I assume you'll be adding more blocks in the other colors? And of all the Goodnight Irenes I've seen, I like yours the best ... of course, I'm not much of a fan of the totally random scrappy quilts, so it makes sense that a controlled scrappy like yours would be far more appealing to me. ;-)

  15. It has been a long month for Saturdays. It is nice to have plenty of time to make a dent in the blue. Those blocks for your Goodnight Irene quilt look great. Love the variety in your background fabrics.
