Once again, it’s the day my friend Gun in Sweden and I host ScrapHappy, a day for showing something made from scraps.
This month, I’ve once again dived into my sorted scrap boxes to make single-colour scrap blocks. I had some beautiful reds to play with, and I really love the resulting block! I have a modest range of greens: a fair few bright greens, a few darks and a handful of olive/pea greens, so I went with the latter because I love how they play together. And strangely, despite the fact that yellow and orange are colours I very rarely use, I have a good supply of both. So naturally, I had to complete the red, amber and green traffic light trio! Next month I may give turquoise/ teals a go – I do have a huge range of teal scraps to play with, after all! Oh, and maybe also a blue block, since of all the scrap colours I have the most blues.
ScrapHappy is open to anyone using up scraps – no new fabrics. It can be a random or formal quilt block, a pillow or pincushion, a bag or hat, a collage or rag rug. Anything made of scraps is eligible. If your scrap collection is out of control and you’d like to turn them into something beautiful instead of leaving them to collect dust in the cupboard, why not join us on the 15th of each month? Either email me at the address shown on the Contact Me page, or leave a comment below. You can also contact Gun via her blog to join. You don’t have to worry about a long term commitment or even join in every month, just let either of us know a day or so in advance if you’re new and you’ll have something to show, so we can add your link.
Here are the links for everyone who joins ScrapHappy from time to time (they may not post every time, but their blogs are still worth looking at):
