Oh Scrap! Scrappy Little Joys Quilt blocks

Trim the Tree blocks complete

Oh Scrap! is a linky party hosted by Cynthia Brunz, who blogs at Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework. The last time I joined in was when I made these offset rainbow blocks, and more of those fun blocks are next on my list.

Welcome Home blocks started

Today I'm working on the Little Joys Quilt-Along blocks. Although the project finished last week, I am still catching up on my quilt-alongs. And since I made this project scrappy by not buying the kit, it qualifies for Oh Scrap!

The blocks are Trim the Tree (Christmas tree), Welcome Home (wreath), and Season of Giving (present). Since the pattern was written for three blocks of each design and using the same fabrics, my only difficulty has been making sure I adjust the quantities of fabrics needed for each block - and I have messed up a few times. Oh well, that just makes more scraps for my jar.

  1. Hello Linda! Hope you are having a fun weekend! Love your scrap blocks... very pretty fabrics! :) x

  2. I love those blocks in those fabrics!!

  3. A scrap variation is worth the extra thinking about amount of fabric. Cute trees.

  4. Cute trees. I have this pattern on my "to do" list. Maybe this year. There's still lots of sewing time left before Christmas.

    1. Thanks for visiting! Yes there is some time left before Christmas, but I'll still be saying that in the middle of December. ;)

  5. Great idea using scrappy fabric for the quilt along! Your trees look great! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  6. I have a bucket full of scraps, what a wonderful idea to use them up. Love all the ideas in the link-up, thanks for sharing the link, I'll keep it in mind for when I get some spare time (haha) Always love Christmas ideas and your trees are gorgeous, cant wait to see the rest of it.
