ScrapHappy Saturday - Blue Bliss

This is the midpoint of the blue month.  Two blue Saturdays have elapsed, but two more remain, even after today.  Hopefully, 5 weekends will give everyone a chance to start making a dent in all those blue scraps.
I've been having way too much fun with blue geese.  The ones on the top row are crumb geese from all the random leftovers.  I used the GO cutter to cut the pieces, but it would work with any flying geese ruler.  The bottom row were leftover flying geese that were hanging out waiting for inspiration.  Hopefully blue inspiration has found you.  Misterlinky is below so that everyone can come and see your blue projects starting to take shape.

I love your crumb geese! I wish I could stay home and play with my scraps today but alas....I am off to work.

Thank you for all the inspiration you provide!!

Kate said...

The crumb geese are such a great way to use scraps. I've never tried making crumb blocks, but your flying geese tempt me to start.

Joanne said...

Those crumb geese are appealing. Much more interesting than a square of crumbs. I continue to enjoy and follow your blog.

Karen said...

I love flying geese. A great block to use your crumbs.

Delighted Hands said...

I sure can admire your crumb blocks even though I still sweep all my crumbs in the trash!

Jennifer said...

looks great! I like your flying geese- never thought of using the crumb blocks for those- aren't the seams too bulky? guess not....
quick question: this month was the blues, with accent of purple. when we get to the purple month, I[m guessing the accent color will be NOT purple, but a different color? doesn't really matter, but I 'm just wondering....

Jennifer said...

oops! I should have re-read that... I meant when the purple month comes, the accent will NOT be blue, right?

I loved making my die cut crumb geese last year - your flock is looking good.

Kat Scribner said...

Wow. Lots of great link ups. I can't wait to visit them all. I have my column row blocks done now on to side projects with blues. Love the plan to add a splash of a 2nd color. This quilt will sparkle. Side note: my RSC15 sampler is finally done, just doing the handwork on the binding. Can't wait to share a photo and see it myself. It is so large, I've only seen it in parts. lol

What a great way to use up all those little pieces that really want to be made into something! They look great!
I am so excited to be joining you this year in this challenge! Hoping to get my strings and selvedges under control!

Ivani said...

Love the crumb geeses. It's a great way to use all those small bits. So fun!

Shasta Matova said...

Oops sorry - I added my scrappy quilt to your list, but I realize you are adding blues. I'll pay better attention to the directions next time! I am really enjoying seeing all these blue projects.

Nice geese, really like the Crumb Geese idea.

I really love your crumb geese. So fun to use up all the tiniest scraps. I've found that I have too many blue scraps to use up all of them in January.

Marly said...

Lovely geese, especially those made from the "made" fabric.

Angie said...

Crumb geese - lovely idea!

Lyndsey said...

I love the geese. I have a mountain of blue scraps I'm need to use up

Lovely Flying Geese blocks and great use of made fabric for the top row.

I love your geese! Not sure whether you know that something seems to be awry with Mr Linky and and LinkUp

Shelia said...

I've got my 8 twinkle stars made.

Remnant Quilter said...

I love the twinkle star blocks you designed!!! I want to make a whole quilt of them floating on a solid white background. Thank you for the linkup.
