Sewing Red




It is red month at the



Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2017 @ So Scrappy


This started in January while I was waiting for my laser eye procedure.
so I am a very late start.

Better late than not at all.


So yesterday I gathered a handful of red strings ...


and started sewing ...


until I had these random size units.

The rest was a lot of improv piecing, cutting and squaring
to make different types of spool blocks.

This was fun!

I have had the idea of making a scrappy stringy thread spool quilt for some time.

The RSC has provided just the incentive I needed to get working on this project.

Linking Up with Scrap Happy Saturday

There is a lot of wonderful blocks and inspiration in the links.

Enjoy!
