RSC ~ Transition Saturday

My first "transition" block of the day.

It is supposed to still be brown with pink month over at the


... but I had to cut more 1.5" pink and brown scraps ...

... so I started cutting other colors, too.

The thought is that since I am making a Postage Stamp Quilt
and I want the colors to blend well throughout the quilt
that I need some "transition blocks"
that have other colors in them.

Here is Transition Block #2

It seems that mostly green and purple scraps found their way into
my pink and brown blocks.

Then I picked up a couple of left over blue scraps from January 
and sewed them in with the greens and pinks and purples ...

... into Transition Block # 3

I have no idea what the March colors will be.

I may make transition blocks on the first and last Saturdays of the month.

I got started late on this challenge and only got one blue block made for January.

I need to go back and make more.

I really like using up my small scraps in these blocks.

Here are all my Rainbow Scrap Challenge Blocks 
sew far = sew good

Linking up today with all the scrappy goodness at

RSC Brown Wrap Up

Looking forward to making the March blocks.

I am going to be travelling next month and need a small project to pack and bring with me.

I will be visiting my daughter abd will have access to her small sewing machine.

I think I am going to cut a couple of baggies of 1.5" squares and
make this my sewing project
when I need a little fabric play time.

Mostly I will be playing with my grand-darling.

I see that you are hoping for PURPLE with green accents, too!! Angela won't keep us waiting too much longer.

That is going to be a lovely scrappy postage stamp quilt.
Have fun with the gd.

I think transition blocks are a great idea. Have fun with your grand-darling!

You are doing a good job with the transition blocks. That seems to be a unique idea, so go for it!

Playing with the grand-darling is obviously the highest priority when you're away from home! Hopefully you will be able to catch up quickly. I like your plan for transition blocks at the tail end of each month/beginning of the new month.

"Sew good" is right! They look great!

I really want to find time to finish up the five and dime quilt that's been hanging on my wall for many months so that I can start putting my color blocks up in some sort of design.
