Scrap block progress

One of my sewing goals this week was to make 7 quilt blocks. I finished up 8 purple scrap blocks, so I went above and beyond.

8 purple scrap blocks 
I like the blocks with smaller pieces better... but they take more work and thinking. 

Then I decided to lay out all 55 of my completed scrap blocks. Here's the rainbow so far:
These blocks are 6.5" square. I'm planning on making at least 25 more. I need to focus on pink and turquoise next, I think.

Gorgeous! And what a great way to use up scraps. Mine are a little overwhelming lately and this looks like it would take care of some of the scrap buckets nicely. Thanks for the inspiration! Lisa

What a grand quilt this will be. I love the colors and it is a great way to use up scraps. Please show us when you have them all together. Love those yellows!

Your quilt is lovely! I'm going to have to take inspiration from you and make one of my own. So excited to see how it will look when it's all finished :)

Beautiful. I have this same kind of pattern in mind but am going to do it in a diagonal pattern with the colors. I saw that some place and it was very dramatic. How'd you collect your stash to get the right colors?

I love the rainbow effect

How do you make the blocks? I am not a scrappy quilt person, but this one intrigues me for my scraps!
