I've always liked the look of these, and decided it was time to have a go. Although I have plenty of yellow scraps,they're either long narrow strips, or small scraps, and not big enough to cut a good sized centre block, and so it seemed a good idea to make the centre a feature. The centre block is 4"square finished, and the total block is 8.5 "unfinished.
I also made a start on some crumb blocks.
I felt I was getting a bit stale and boring with my scrap sewing, and browsing around the blogs featured on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Link-up, these Circle of Squares blocks on Kathy's Quilts Blog caught my eye, and so I made my first one this week......partly made as I haven't sewn the rows together yet. (pattern here)
Kathy used the colour of the month for her backgrounds, but I didn't have enough of any one yellow to do that, decided white or off-white could be a bit ordinary, and then, having a good rummage, found some good size pieces of various greys that do the trick nicely, I think. Kathy pieced her coloured pieces from crumb scraps, so I've tucked that idea away for next time. Isn't Blogland wonderful for inspiration and ideas!
