Scrap Happy in October

 The 50 Shades of Brown quilt along project was inspirational. Ever since I finished my version of the project it's been on my mind to try it in other colors. First up was blue. I had a stack of 1.5" squares on hand, about all I had to do was find the 2.5" patches I needed to go between them (which wasn't hard!).

I didn't feel the need to add flying geese units this time around. 

I'm thinking this one will become another mat for my dog's bowls. With the 2" borders the dimensions of the original project are just about perfect for that purpose. 

All I need to do now is find something to use on the back. I have plenty of batting scraps available to go in between. 😉

I've been steadily sewing short lengths of 2" strips together as leaders and enders for scrappy Lego blocks. Turns out I had enough to make three 12" blocks this month!

That gives me a current total of 24 blocks. I could either make more strips and blocks (although that scrap basket is getting pretty low) or figure out a way to combine the Lego blocks I have with other blocks from the Parts Department. I feel the need to make a twin size quilt if I can, to donate for victims of the wildfires the western states in the US have had this year. 

Here are the links for everyone who joins Scrap Happy Day from time to time (they may not post every time but their blogs are still worth looking at). 


  1. I bet you have enough scraps to make the dog a beautiful mat in a different colour for every day of the week. Or possibly two! That Logo block is looking good, and I do think a donation quilt is a lovely idea for how to use it.

  2. Both projects are lovely. I especially like your scrappy borders on the blue quilt.

  3. Two great scrap projects! I'm much more likely to find 50 shades of blue. =)
