Mile a Minute in Blue

Blue Mile a Minute quilt blocks

Last night I worked on Blue Mile a Minute blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  I was a little more liberated with the blue and used different shapes of scraps.  Actually I think I work with blue so much that there were a lot more shapes to choose from.  After I sewed my nine blocks I think I had enough blue scraps left to continue and make a whole quilt!

Here’s a sample of what I have so far for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

  1. I really like those 'mile a minute' blocks. I must try to make one. I'm looking forward to seeing your 'mile a minute' finished quilt in December.
    I love all those shades of blue.

  2. Great job with your blue scrap blocks!

  3. Great group shot - your blocks look fantastic!

  4. Fun collection of blue! I think I could make several quilts just from blue scraps -- it is such a popular color.

  5. Great blocks and love all the blues!
