I’ve Got the Blues!!!

But it’s the GOOD kind of blues!  

The Rainbow Scrap Challenge color this month is BLUE, which is my favorite color (just in case you wanted to know :*) – and so I am having a ball making up more little tiny paper-pieced pineapples in my favorite color!


For this project, I always use my tiniest crumb scraps, which makes me feel great knowing I am using all of my fabrics up and making beautiful things out of even the smallest crumbs!


As I shared in THIS POST, I was not happy with having all these little pieces just dumped in a bucket, so I purchased enough jars to have one for each color so I could get all those crumbs out of this messy, disorganized bin….


And separated by color into their own glass jar.  


See how lovely they all look?  Oh yes, I’m a happy camper!  =^..^=

No more digging for the right color pieces!  I just opened up the jar, poured out my blue fabrics...


.....and away I went, sewing up a storm on my little blue pineapples.  


I’m not finished yet, but you can see they are going to be SEW cute!!!

Be sure to go over to SoScrappy and see how everyone else is handling “the blues” on this Scrappy Rainbow Saturday!

Hugs & Blessings,
Teresa

  1. What a wonderful array of color in those jars! Such a pretty, practical display, Teresa.
    Oh, another cute pineapple block. These just make me grin every time I see them. IF I did paper piecing I would be sew tempted!! Love 'em!

  3. what fun! great idea to organize these and great block- I have a blue and black pineapple block quilt I need to finish, it's just taking so long- I did pre measure all the pieces and label them in a bin, but still it's taking a long time, I kind of get bored with so many of the same blocks. what are you making with yours?

  14. What fun!!! I do love the look of your rainbow scrap jars! Where did you find such tall ones and with pretty silver caps? Your blue pineapple blocks are darling -- I started a quilt eons ago with purples, but have never finished it. They may be my inspiration to get going on it. Although, mine was not started with scraps -- which I like better. Maybe I'll have to throw some of those in to the mix for my UFO. You are so clever.

  15. I love this idea of putting tiny scraps into their own colour jar. One of these days...
    Your blue pineapple is looking good. You have some great blue fabrics there. I've yet to do mine.
