And here is my scrappy RED Fantasia block for August....
Isn't that little guitar in the upper right corner just perfect for Nashville? Hehehehe..... I got a really late start again this month on my Scrap Challenge blocks (this time because I've been busy working on my Hexie Queen Blog Hop project which will post on Monday. I think you're going to like it!)
Remember, a couple of months ago, I started work on Bonnie Hunter's Talkin' Turkey in a group with some friends. It's an all-red quilt, so since I wanted to use up as many of my scraps as possible on it, I went through my scrap bin in advance .....
and pulled out all the pieces I wanted to keep for my regular monthly blocks for the RSC, and then I paired them together as they would be used in the blocks.....
That really was such a help this month, because I didn't have to dig through as usual and decide which scraps to use where and find matching pieces for each block. I just sat down at my machine and started sewing pieces together :*)
I am wondering however if I have too much of the same color/texture fabrics in that top row together? Those are intended for the Lone Starburst block sections, and I'm thinking I may have to raid my fat quarters to get some more interest going there :*) The fabrics on the bottom will be used for the Hatchett blocks and little left-over half-square triangles, and I think they'll be just fine as they are.
I also decided to play with the little left-over pieces from cutting the curved sections on Fantasia this month, and these cute little blocks just materialized as if by magic on my sewing table ......
Aren't they cute? There is just the barest hint of a curve in them - just enough to catch the eye and make one stop to look closer :*) I have no idea if I'll ever use them for anything, but I just can't bring myself to throw away pieces of fabric this size just because I can't use them in the block I'm currently working on. I can't find the pieces from the past months - surely I didn't throw them away - egads!!! Hopefully they'll turn up in that mess I call "organization" in my sewing studio LOL!!! And when they do, I'll make some more of these and see what happens. I love to quilt serendipity style!
Many more wonderful RED projects are linked up at SoScrappy for your enjoyment HERE!
I'll be in my sewing studio all day tomorrow, finishing up my Hexie Queen projects ;*)
Be sure to come by and see whether I've managed to get my Hexie-groove on or not!
Hugs & Blessings!
