2015 RSC January Blue Week 4
This week I finished cutting my blue scraps into usable sizes. Crumbs will go into a plastic bag. Strips less than 1.5" wide will go into a box of strings for string blocks.
The two 8.5" crumb blocks in last weeks post became another blue crumb hot pad. That's two this month. They make nice gifts. I'll add five 4.5" crumb blocks to my growing crumb block collection. The large blue puppy block in the picture was made with 2.5" squares. I made three puppy blocks last year. Now I have four.
To see what other's made with their blue scraps this week, go here Saturday morning.
Sarah is hosting a Sweet 16 Block Quilt Along this year. See her button on the side of my blog. She is posting 16-patch quilt ideas each week. I have a plastic tub of 2.5" squares that I've cut from scraps. I'm always adding and taking squares from this container. Pictured are four colorful scrappy 16-patch blocks I made this week with squares from that tub. My plan is to make about 48 blocks for a Hands2Help Charity Quilt this year.
Three knitted dishcloths made it into the picture.
Usually I buy Peaches'n Cream or Sugar'n Cream cotton yarn for my dishcloths. However, a few weeks ago I found a new to me cotton yarn brand at AC Moore and thought I've give it a try. Using a crochet YouTube video, I crocheted the BRIGHT dishcloth in the picture. It was fun! Here's the link to the crochet dishcloth video tutorial I used : )
