ScrapHappy Saturday - Winding Down Blues

What a great start we have had for the RSC this year!  I am so excited to see all the great projects each week and it is keeping me motivated to turn my own scraps into quilts, one block at a time.  I didn't put up all the crumb blocks or the orange peels now that I think about it, but I did pull out all the other blue I've been working on this month.  Starting with the upper left and working clockwise: leftover nine patches from Mai Tai Sunrise last year, new nine patches for the framed nine patch this year, two Sawtooth Sampler blocks, one alternate block, one New York Beauty block, four postage stamp stars and finally, one white star on a blue background.
For those working on the Sampler this year, there have been two blocks, the Whirling Geese and the Card Trick.  I have also posted background fabric requirements, alternate block directions and how many blue blocks will be needed to make the alternate blocks in blue.  All the links are located on the RSC15 Sampler tab at the top of the page in case you missed any posts along the way.
If you didn't see the last post about the February giveaway of hand dyed fabric by Vicki Welsh, please scroll down or follow the link to enter for your chance to win.  We were up to 75 comments last night! I am excited to get ready for another great month of sewing with scraps.
How are your blues wrapping up?

I'm having trouble getting linked up :-( is it because I'm using an iPad maybe? Here's my blog post -

Have others linked with an I pad? It's all I have right now
Thank you for any help you can give me. I'm familiar with other linky tools but not this one:-)

What an amazing job you do keeping this challenge going. Thank you so very much. Now on to pinks, one of my favourite colours.

Wow - you have had a busy, scrappy month! I'm looking forward to seeing the NYB-style blocks all assembled!

I can't seem to get Mr. Linky to work for me. I've posted my blocks for January on my blog today: sewingmagpie.blogspot.com

Thanks for continuing to spearhead this project!

Blue has been a fun month. And I think I finally have a grasp of what I am doing. Thanks!

Nanette said...

You have some great blue blocks on the go there, very productive. I didn't do anymore blues, a messy week where I did no sewing at all....time to think pink!

my blue scrap bin is completely empty!! cut out a bunch of stuff, 1100 triangles with the GO cutter that hardly put in a dent into the bin, but that's all that could fit on that die (widths of fabric) the rest were too skinny so I made something else, but don't know if I can share yet......
