Hello sunshine

All those yellow and orange scraps have now been cut, sewn and trimmed into 6" 9 patch blocks as you can see below.

This was an inspiring point to get out all my other 9 patches that have been created each month for the last 10 months and have a little play with them.    After moving them this way, that way, the other way and then back again I decided to set them out in each colour group.

In order to make the quilt wider and longer it will need a couple of more rows and I think perhaps a sashing of white in between each colour as well as a border.   A bit more playing over the next day or two is needed.

Back soon with some photos of what is decided and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

What a good idea to make the same block in so many different colors. I like the way you have then arranged too!

The yellows now have made your collection into a nice rainbow. Love all the scraps of garden bits, flowers birds, Mr. Sun himself.

I am loving those scrappy nine patches. Great idea to group them by color. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!
