2014 Rainbow Scrap Challenge, January, Blue, Week 4


The 8.5" Spool blocks in the picture were made during the 2013 RSC. This year I'll make more spools to add to this collection.


After a week of playing with blue scraps I'll add four 6.5" sampler sew along blocks, a 8.5" spool block, a couple 5.5" Coco Mug blocks pieced with a Lori Holt pattern and a 8.5" cat block that is half of a cat block pattern by Patti Carey called Kool Kats Kwilt. Her pattern was published in a magazine years ago. I'm not sure what I'll do with this block, but it was fun to make. A knitted dishcloth made it into the picture, too.
I have a lot more blue scraps, but I'm ready to play with another color in February. To see what others made with their blue scraps, go here.

So productive as always. I love the cat, and am sure he will sneak in somewhere. I am looking forward to another color too. Soon......

I just love your rainbow spools. I don't remember them from last year!

WOW! You have a lot going on. Love your spool block project! Great way to use up those skinny strips. Your little sampler blocks are adorble. You have used some very pretty blues in them. Your cat and mug blocks too are great and I see you're still knitting! Great idea to start making dish cloths now to pop into gifts.

It's interesting how great your monthly blocks look but when you sort them out to "all spool blocks"... they become something more.

As always, your beautiful blocks made me smile this morning!

I love your string pieced spool blocks. I might have to try some of those too! This is such a fun challenge...after seeing such wonderful projects from past years, I've jumped on the bandwagon :)

I love the car, he's very cute. And your spools are looking great!

Have you ever shared on your blog what size you cut the pieces for the spool block? I'd be interested in knowing as I like the larger size. Thanks, they're adorable.
