Scraptastic Tuesday

Although I desperately need to organize my scrap bag because I can't find anything, I managed to find some fabrics to make two blocks.

I'm participating in Stash Bee for 2016.  Cyndi was Queen Bee for Hive 7 in January, and she asked for a Scrappy Diamond Block.  All simple HST's.



I also decided to make the Aurifil January block designed by Heather Valentine -- again all from my scrap bag.  I found it hard to follow the pattern and lay out the pieces in the right order -- all pieces the same size were labelled the same letter, even though they were all different fabrics.  Confusing.

Head over to Musings of  Menopausal Melon and to Pink Doxies for the start of the Craftsy Sweetens Up My Quilting Life blog hop -- and there's a great giveaway.  And stop by here on Saturday when I showcase a few patterns from Craftsy.

  2. The January Aurifil block looks great, but that does sound confusing. You assembled it beautifully, though (perseverance for the win!). :)

  4. I'm a sucker for blue so I have to say I favor the blue and white block. Kudos for sticking with it through the confusion, it made for a lovely block. :)

  5. I really like that Aurifil January block, and want to make it. Good heads-up. Yours is beautiful; think I have one of those fabrics. Your scrappy HST diamond block is a feast for the eyes!

  6. Yay! You made the Aurifil block! Will you be sewing along with their BOM too? It's usually one of my favorite ones to do. The scrappy block is very pretty too. Doesn't it feel good to use up scraps?

  9. Both blocks are beautiful. I think I like the Aurifil block a little more because I've not seen anything quite like it.
