waffling and blue

My blue scrap chunk basket is full, but, I have a 2 gallon zip lock bag of odds and ends and leftovers that I need to go through before I cut, hoping there is enough room in the basket for the new.

I had enough blue pieces already cut for the waffle stamp blocks. I did not need to cut anymore, so, I was able to get these sewn quickly for the start of the month for the rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy.

It looks like I really need red, and a little orange for this quilt, and, maybe purple. I think I want to start sewing a few blocks of four together with the colors I have. It might save me from throwing the blocks in a box at the end of the year.

  1. I keep seeing waffles and being tempted. Such a fun block. Having groups of 4 is a great place to start.

  2. You've got lots of pretty blues for those waffle blocks, Maggie! They're fun to look at.

  3. What a lovely variety of Bright and Light BLUE scraps for your RSC Waffle blocks, Maggie! What's next? I know there's more. :o))

  4. Smart to sew into groups of 4. It makes things that much closer when it is time to sew it into a top.... and things that are bigger are harder to go missing =).

  5. Lots of blue waffle blocks, well done!

  6. Such pretty blue waffles! Great idea to sew them together in groups of 4... easier to corral them into a quilt top at the end.

  7. Love the waffle stammps! And happy Easter!

  8. Wow! You have already made a lot of progress on your blue scraps. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

  9. Hiya , I am making a similar block . I had no ideas it is called a waffle block! It is a real scrap buster isn't it.
    Stay safe and sew on !
