Blue Rainbow Scrap Challenge

 The color drawn for this months Rainbow Scrap Challenge was Blue.

So I headed to my Trusty Bucket of Blocks and this is what I pulled...

Not a bad Haul of Blue Blocks right?  And believe me... there are more in that bucket!



And I even got two placemats Pieced!!



Kinda looks like I forgot to Iron them tho - oops!

A lot of you send me Questions about the sizes of these - So I created a Placemat Project tab at the top, linking to the different posts.... but essentially what I am doing is picking 6 blocks

Choosing the smallest one - and trimming all 6 to the same size

then piecing them

I think its just a fun freeing way to make these Placemats

And then I get asked if they are going to Meals on Wheels

Well - Sorta , but No

In my original post I told you that we have a senior Center in our small town that delivers meals to our Seniors ( its like meals on wheels, but not) so these will go to them first.

And of course, I will have made more than what we need by the delivery date, so I am thinking that the rest of them should go to Hospice. I think that would be fun for the Nurses of Hospice to have something bright to bring to their patients when they visit.  I know our Hospice nurse is so kind and caring, it might be fun for them to have a little something to leave behind that's bright and cheery.

That IS a nice haul of blues. My blues scrap bin is stuffed and never gets any smaller. Great idea on placemats for hospice nurses. Have a nice Easter!

Love the idea of leaving something sunny behind from Hospice. You are doing a great job making placemats.

The ironing can happen when you are ready, lots of blue blocks already. Busy bee.

How intriguing, I wonder what else is hiding in your "trusty bucket if blocks"?

Not a bad haul at all!!! Your trusty basket came through again :-) I love all those blues and together they shine and shimmer. Have a lovely Easter Sunday, Alycia.

I am in absolute awe of how many orphan blocks you have!! I need to find a place to donate my placemats. Local would be so nice so I don't have to mail them.
