Scrap Saturday -- RSC17

There is still a pile of yellow scraps on my desk just begging to be made into something bright.  I decided to keep working on yellow for a bit longer and make a Picadilly Circle block that I needed.  I started Picadilly Circle while working with other colors for the RSC14!  It's on my goal list to finish this year.  For some reason, these blocks seem to take me a few hours to make.

 
I played with the little left overs after trimming the paper-pieced sections above and made 4-patches.  (Maybe that is why the above block takes hours... I get sidetracked from time to time.)

 
I found some little blue 1.5" squares that I could use.

 
I made two more blue units to finish this Go Four It block.

 
Another row is done.  This quilt is growing just like the Garden Party did.  I'm trying to simulate the same colors that are in the pattern in the April, 2015 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting.  Next week I hope to make more progress in blue with my Garden Party project. 

 
Yesterday I was motivated to finish a BIG BLUE project!  I LOVE it!  This quilt was designed by Cindy Staub of Quilt Doodle Designs.  She offered it to us as a free BOM as long as you printed each pattern during the current month.  January 2016 was "blue" month for the RSC16 (Rainbow Scrap Challenge).  I decided then that it would be an all blue/white quilt.  You can read all the details on my blog post yesterday.
 

I'm linking up with Angela at SoScrappy for the RSC17 Scrap Saturday linky party.  Come join the fun.  Be inspired!

  1. I enjoyed seeing all the blocks you posted about! The Go For It quilt is going to be a fun one! I made blocks like that for RSC 16 and never could get it into a layout I liked, but I really like yours.

  4. The Piccadilly Circle blocks is very interesting and I can see it would be time consuming. I have that issue of American Patchwork and Quilting and have admired that quilt many times. Maybe someday, right now I'm orienting my 4-patches in a straight setting.

  7. I don't think I've seen a Piccadilly Circle block before, but I sure love it. I can understand that it would take awhile. Darling blue and white Christmas quilt!

  9. Looks like a productive week. Congrats! on your wintery BLUE quilt finish. I have to say, though, it is all I can do to keep myself from starting your GO FOUR IT quilt!!

  13. Maybe it takes so long because there are SO many pieces. =) Good scrappy progress, and the blue and white is great. I haven't seen a two-color one of that quilt before.
