Scrap Happy in May

I thought I might pull together a small quilt for a cat in our animal shelter for this month's Scrap Happy Day. That didn't happen. Instead, I went through the most recent off-cuts from quilt backs and cut 3" strips for scrappy trip blocks. 

I was able to make five more blocks for my Parts Dept. from those and a few other strips I had on hand. 

There are probably enough now for a personal size quilt top. We'll have to wait until next month to find out however. There are baby quilts to be made in the meantime!

I came across a few other scrappy blocks that must have been made fairly recently too. 😊

Those greens are not quite so bright/neon in person!

Scrap Happy Day is held on the 15th of each month and is open to anyone who wants to repurpose what might otherwise end up in the trash, fabric or otherwise. Below are the links for those who regularly participate. If you'd like to join us just leave a comment on Kate or Gun's blogs. 😀

  1. Love those blocks on the design wall, and to find random blocks, they always come in handy.

  2. Cat quilts can wait, babies come first! I can't believe you found enough 'lying-around' scraps for those trip around the world blocks, which are gorgeous, by the way! For me, next month's scrap happy might be something left over from the trim-outs of the 4 corner blocks of the Floribunda quilt, which do look fun to play with.

  3. Great use of scraps! I love your (not so) bright green blocks ;)

  4. My favourite quilts to make are for babies. Even the most distant relative gets one if they announce a pregnancy.
    Your Parts Department, as ever, has come up with the goods for some great blocks.

  5. I love finding blocks that are just lying in a box and waiting to be used! They will make a great scrap quilt!

  6. Ah the parts department; I keep forgetting about it. Perfect place for my orphan blocks with no other destination!
