One of my quilty resolutions this year is to make a scrappy quilt a month, or 12 scrap quilts this year. This is a huge resolution, I know, but I have a lot of scraps to use up. And really scrap quilts are my favorite!
Well, Angela's Rainbow Scrap Challenge is perfect for this. She picks a color every month for us to focus on. January's color is blue. I had 4 different scrap quilts floating around in my head that were just perfect for this challenge. Focusing on just one color a month means that I am just doing a few blocks a month and by the end of the year I will have 4 whole quilts ready to put together. Perfect!
Here are the blocks I came with....
Some scrappy log cabins. I've made a quilt like this before and just LOVE it. Since, I always have scraps of 2 1/2 inch strips, this may just be a quilt I make every year.
These bamboo looking blocks have been on my to-do list for a LONG time, ever since I saw Amanda's version over at Crazy Mom Quilts. This is a perfect way to use up those tiny little crumbs.
Wonky Stars using "made-fabric". I can't throw ANYTHING away. Sometimes when I just need some mindless sewing, I sit and sew tiny little scraps together and make slabs of fabric that I can then cut up and use however I want. These stars just show off all that fun scrappiness.
And finally, these flying geese from The Best of Quilty. They have been calling my name.
I am excited to be able to spend a little time with these blocks each month. What color will February bring?
