Scraptastic Tuesday - The April Link is open!

It's the second Tuesday of April. Please share your scrappy projects, in progress or completed or your tips for using or organizing your scraps.

I pulled out my bin of solid scraps this past weekend and made some blocks for Marci for my Bee Sewcial improv bee. Marci's theme was blooms, with dark midnight backgrounds and saturated colours. Also the blocks are small, 6.5" square.

Improv Bloom

Once I got started, this project was just a joy do. I have made many of the roses like the bottom purple one, so I knew that would be one of them and the blue posy sort of reminds me of a spring pansy. The yellow was inspired by morning glories, a favourite of mine, and the orange is more abstract, a wildflower bed, an arial view, the centre of a daisy or whatever your imagination says to you.

Improv Bloom

This blue posy is particularly calling me to make more. We shall see, there is no shortage of projects around my sewing room. But playing with solid scraps is a lot of fun.

This last one is the straggler. I am going to share it on instagram and see if Marci likes it too. It is even more abstract, but still fun.

Now on to your scrappy projects.

Great blossoms Leanne! Spring is really inspiring isn't it?

The Bee Sewcial blocks I've been seeing on blogs for this month are really fascinating. I made some flowers like the ones on the left side of your mosaic for my Wonderland quilt, but I'm not so sure everyone can tell they're flowers (mine, not yours). Thanks for hosting.
