Blue Scrappy Saturday

It's Scrappy Saturday over at Angela's blog, So Scrappy.  This month she's chosen blue scraps for us to work with so I pulled just some of my blue scraps and made some more of these 3 1/2 (unfinished) string blocks.


I'm not sure what I will do with these blocks, but a couple of years ago I made these other color blocks as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  


I also made these blue Dresden blades out of some of my 2 1/2" strips.  You can find my tutorial on how I cut these Dresden blades and how I use them to make a table topper here.




I've been making a few string blocks from my scrap bags, too.  I had forgotten how much I like piecing strings.  You can find my string block tutorial here.    There is also a tab under my blog header.



Here are just some of my scraps.  I have a drawer full of 2 1/2" strips, and some 2" strips and a lot of 1 1/2" strips besides the bags in the photo below.  You can see that there are a lot of scrap projects in my future.


The big snow storm went south and east of me.  I hope all of you that are in the storm are safe and warm.

I'm linking up with Angela's Scrap Happy Saturday.  Click on over to see the rest of the blue projects for this week.

Hope you are finding some time to stitch today!

Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

  4. That is a lot of scrappy goodness! I'm doing string blocks for one of my RSC projects this year, too. I'd be happy to send you some snow if you feel left out. We're probably up to at least 2 feet by now, and it's still snowing. :-(

  16. I have recently made a pile of scrappy string blocks, using magazine pages 8" square, but I realise I don't like the jumbled up colours, so I am going to stop and make each block from one colour like your first photo.
    I have made a big pile of dresden blades, but I dont mind them all mixed colours, as they will all have the same colour centre.

  17. Your pile of scraps looks very intriguing. I want to jump in and play with them.
