I have managed to make it into the sewing room here and there this week. The Snowball block, block 5 for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge Sampler quilt is done.
Block 6, the Anvil block, is cut out and ready to assemble. That will probably get done today.
Last Sunday, the backed up Electric Quilt files were loaded onto the new hard drive. So I was able to print out paper piecing patterns for 11 scrappy butterfly blocks. The butterfly blocks were last year's scrap challenge project, but only one block got made, so I'm going to finish those as part of this year's challenge. Here's this month's block.

Block is available in EQ 7 Block Library
This butterfly still needs the antennae added, but the piecing is all done. I really like the spider web fabric used for the upper wings. I'm not sure where it came from. While scrounging around in my blue fat quarters drawer looking for partially used fat quarters, I came across a set of fat eighths that I don't remember acquiring. Any plans I had for them have long since been forgotten, so those fat eighths have been added to the blue scraps.
I've really enjoyed playing with my blue scraps this month. Next Saturday will be a new month and I'm looking forward to seeing what color scraps I get to play with in February. Check out Soscrappy for more true blue scrappy fun.
