My favourite colour

What a treat when I saw that the Rainbow Scrap Challenge colour for this month is blue, my favourite colour and I’ll take it as a special birthday present as well, since this is my birth month.

My first little project in blue is two birch tree quilt blocks by Amanda Jean Nyberg who blogs at CrazyMom Quilts, the hand-dyed background fabric is Colorways by Vicki Welsh.  I also snuck a few leaders and enders in blue for a future scrappy postage stamp quilt.

Now I just have two orange birch tree blocks waiting for a month of orange and all the blocks for this little quilt top will be complete, you can see the orange peeking through under the blue blocks.

On a blue theme, I began to prewash some Star Trek and Star Wars fabric for a couple of TV cuddle quilts, I have to get moving on this project – wedding gifts for my brother-in-law and new sister-in-law – hopefully I’ll be posting these finished by the end of August!!

You can enjoy and view many other blue scrappy projects at Angela’s Rainbow Scrap Challenge Saturday post on her Soscrappy blog.

Do doot doot do do do, do doot do do do do - Don't worry - be scrappy.


  1. I love that birch tree quilt, and it certainly looks wonderful in blue! That will be a great quilt. :D

  2. Congrats! on your progress with your BLUE scrappy projects. Looking forwards to seeing how it all comes together!!

  3. I really like the way the little tree "branch" colors make the background colors pop! Happy birthday!

  4. Do you mean the Birch Tree blocks finish at 2"? So small!

  5. I really like this rainbow birth tree idea, and think it will look fabulous when it is done!

  6. Yes...I still love those Birch Trees!

    There's so many Star Trek and Star Wars fans out there who would enjoy a quilt with those fabrics.

  7. Hello!! I'am glad to read the whole content of this blog and am very excited.Thank you.
