I am making two scrap quilts to reduce some of my scrappy stash. In January the RSC14 color was blue, so I started Soul Searching from the book Making Quilts by Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession. I first saw this quilt when my friend Kevin showed me his finished top that he made for friends. I am using just what I can find in my scraps -- I'm not buying anything to make it more harmonious or match better. This is a challenge to "make do" with what I have! Here is the first block.
My second scrappy project is a quilt using scrap strings. I am enlisting some help from a few friends too, so I will have more variety. Since I was working with blues on the above block, I started with blues on this one too. This is just one small portion of the outside border.
This is also going to be a rainbow of colors when it's finished. I thought since I do so many string quilts using random scraps, keeping the color families together would be a change of pace for me.
