Using scraps

Yesterday, since it was a drippy dreary day here, I decided I better catch up on my RSC16 blocks. This month's color is orange. I love using brights for kid donation quilts, and orange fits in perfectly for these blocks.

Scrappy Strippy Kisses from Vol. 11 Quiltmaker's 100 blocks 

And here the orange has joined it's partners of blue and purples. I am really loving this block and how it plays together so nicely with the different color blocks. I can hardly wait to see what color is next. 

I have chosen to work on 2 different blocks each month. This is Tropical Punch from Moda Bake shop.

And with it's partners from January and March. I just couldn't bring myself to do brown blocks with either of these patterns. I love browns but just not with the brights.  You see the blue blocks have cornerstones, at this point I  can't decide if I should continue with them so I'll wait and see.

Hope you all have wonderful sewing days this week ;-)

Late to the party with both of these linky's but better late than never!

And not late to this one;-)


  1. Lovely blocks, Vicki. All those shades of orange and purple really working together beautifully. Hmm, I will have to look up Tropical Punch on Moda. Seems like a good pattern to use up 2.5" strips.

  2. I adore those scrappy kiss blocks. I might have to make that one my 2017 RSC block. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  3. Great blocks. I love the orange scrappy kiss block, too! That will be one fun quilt.

  4. Your bright and cheerful blocks will be PERFECT for a kids quilt!!

  5. I love that pop of orange with the blue and purple. Very eye catching and fun.

  6. You blocks look good together. I wouldn't have wanted to add brown to the brights either.

  7. I like the cornerstones, but I understand why you'd wait and see for a bit. I have two RSC projects on the go too! Have to catch up on the row one I've somehow started! Love that Scrappy Strippy Kisses block, great for scraps! You find the neatest stuff. :-)

  8. A really wonderful combination of fabrics and colors Vicki! I can see why you are holding off on the brown too.


I appreciate your taking time to leave comments. I try to respond to them all, however, if you are a no-reply blogger I am not able to. If you would like to fix that try this link for help.
