March Week 2 Teal RSC2014


Well, I did find some time to stitch the first of three teal pickledish blocks for this month's challenge.  I ran out of a black and white scrap so decided to add a few strips of a white to make it a bit more scrappy.  Do you get that good feeling when you use a piece of fabric up?  If you need help with some scrappy quilt ideas follow this link to Rainbow Scrap Challenge and see what others are creating.

  2. love the teal and black! I thought I had finally used up some big pieces that I bought years ago and then realized I had some in the jelly roll strips scrap box - it won't go away :)

    1. Sometimes those scraps seems like they multiply when your not looking. But I do find them fun to use.

  4. Why is it that using things up is so satisfying? I get the same feeling when I get to the end of anything. Another lovely block.

    1. Maybe we realize it is a reason to go out and purchase more fabric. Thanks Angela

  5. So pretty! I feel quite virtuous when I use up a fabric :)
    I should look for more opportunities to do that because I really think I'm something when I do it! LOL

    1. I like being frugal and I think that is part of it. I think that is why I like scrappy quilts so much.

  6. I like the white scraps. Gives it a bit more "pop". yes, it does feel good to use it all up.

    1. I like the white too, maybe some day I will use those pieces up too. So far I have made five quilts from scraps and have two more started.

    1. Thanks Ellen, I have heard some refer to this block as a eyelash block. Now that you mention cat's eye I can see that also, must be the greens.
