Scrap Saturday -- Teal

I sorted and sorted and went through my strings.  I finally decided on 20 fabrics that I would use in my Picadilly Circle block for this month.  I love these colors.  I don't know why I don't have more of them in my scrap bin.


I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrapy: ScrapHappy blog.

Since my Picadilly Circle is done I thought I would start a whole quilt top made with the strips found in my blue/green scrap bin.  Some are teal... some are blue... some are green -- and everything in between.  I added strips of orange because it's kinda across the color wheel from these colors.  These are mostly the 2.5" strips that were left over from some of my Scrappy Trip quilt that I have been working on for over a year.  I stitched them together end for end and am sewing them together like a jelly roll quilt.  I started out with roughly 1885 inches.  We'll see what size it is when finished.
 
Here's a picture of the mess that is sewn together.  Hopefully next week I'll have a full quilt top to show you.
 
 
The big blue bin seems to never end.  YEAH!

  1. I like your picadilly Circle block, but I don't envy you cutting all those narrow triangles.

    1. The block is really quite simple. The wedges are paper-pieced.

  5. What a great block! Love the variety of teals. I agree with Carla - it is a very calming color. Have fun with your box of blue/green. I 'tamed' mine a bit last year making a wonky log cabin double bed size.

  10. You are so fortunate to have had to narrow down to only 20 different strips for your Piccadilly Circus block. So much variety is good to have. Lovely results.

  12. Great piccadilly circus block. And I can't wait to see the jelly roll quilt unveiled. I'm sure the bits of orange add a great sparkle to the blues.
