I'm so Blue ue ue Blue ue ue ooooo

Remember the Rainbow Scrap Challenge?  I LOVE it!!! I love playing in my colors, and being incentivized to dig through my bags of scraps and see if I can make something.....  or at least clean up a bit!!

A few years ago when Blue was the Color I dug through my 30's repro fabrics and made some blocks.... and so....

I dug through those blocks and this is up on the Design wall



If all goes my way - it will be a top by the end of the month. I think that I will keep it up until I actually start stitching on it - and I even have and idea for borders!! Whoop Whoop

The Sew Me Blog had the pattern, and I fell in love with it
Here it is:  Sew Me: Bee Blessed Pattern

And here is one that I did with my Purple Blocks 


And on to a finish. My Friend Janet passed away a few years ago, and her husband asked if My Friend and I could help him finish some of her quilts. So this is a table runner she had made - I quilted it -AND!!! Bound it!! can't wait to take it back to him....



My kids are still on break and I love it ! Plus I have more help, so surprisingly even thought I have to cook a thousand gatrillions pounds of food - they do chores ;-)

I love your scrappy blue blocks. I have seen the block on Missouri Star Quilts but happy you reminded me of it. Thanks for inspiring.

That blue quilt will be wonderful. Such a sweet gift you are giving your friend's husband finishing the table runner. It turned out great.

Alison said...

Your blue blocks are great! Hooray for being able to make enough blocks for a quilt!

Hi Alycia,
I had to giggle at your title! I hope you are not feeling blue but just enjoying the blue ue ue in your quilt. HAHA! Thanks for sharing the pattern for the block and quilts - looks like a fun one to make should I be in a blue ue ue mood. How nice of you and your friend to finish up some quilts of Janet's. I'll bet her husband will really treasure that table runner, and use it all the time. I know I sure would. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

What a cool design on your Blue scrappy quilt. The tablerunner is beautiful. Your friends husband will love it. That is such a wonderful thing you are doing.

Oh that's so pretty! I love the 30's fabrics in blue, they're just so very soft and sweet!

Lynette said...

Oh, wow, the blue blocks are so pretty together! Very nice of you to help finish her quilts for him. I know it's always a poignant pleasure when I've worked on one of my cousin's projects.

Hooray for kids who do chores... and BLUE blocks for a (practically) ready-made RSC quilt!!! :o))

Sue Daurio said...

I was all excited about the blues blocks and then I got to the end.....your kids do chores????? please have your kids call my kids lol. Sounds like a great start to 2018

What a pretty new project. Good for you, new year, new project. I imagine if there were hamburger patties waiting in the fridge, your handsome crew would be capable of cooking them AND doing chores. Even if there's snow on the ground, the grill still works, right!

Kate said...

A very fun project to kick off this year's RSC effort. It's nice having all the help isn't it. We get one more week with our college girl. It's nice to have someone who can run to the grocery store for you!

LIttle Penguin Quilts said...

Those are great blocks for the scrappy blues! I especially love the pattern the white squares make!

Cathy said...

Way to go! I thought you had used up and finished off all your 30s fabrics. I love those blocks and thanks for the link.

Enjoy the extra help no matter the cost! They disappear to help spouses all too soon!

And I'll bet Mr. Janet will love the table runner.

Mari said...

What a great quilt this will be! Thank goodness you rescued it from the pile!

Jayne said...

Pretty, pretty quilts! What a nice block and the possibilities!!

June D said...

Great to find the blocks. Will be a nice quilt. Good and pretty way to use scraps in an organized way!

This block is a favorite of mine. Great way to sew up all those colorful strips. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

The blue quilt is beautiful. May you finish it this month.
That runner is lovely. I am sure Janet's family will be grateful. Kids who do chores??? Now, that is magical!!!

Anja @ Anja Quilts said...
