Rainbow Scrap Challenge

This is my first time posting on soscrappy's Rainbow Scrap Challenge!  I love using up my scraps, right down to the littlest crumbs, so this challenge is right up my alley.  The colour for the month of January is blue, and I have lots of those!
I've started by rummaging through my jar of cool-coloured crumbs:

I made one crummy block (3 1/2" unfinished):
I also added another house to my Tiny Houses collection (3 1/2" unfinished):
And a block to my Polaroid collection (3 1/2"x 4 1/2" unfinished):
(Not sure why the solid white looks wavy when I imported it into blogger, it looked fine on my computer!)
Next up, sort through my bin of scraps:
I'm too lazy to put everything away as I finish projects, so I stuff the leftovers in this bin and when I have a few minutes (i.e. bored, unmotivated, etc.) I pull it out and cut them into usable size strips and squares, a la Bonnie Hunter's Scrap User System.  I highly recommend it if you struggle with scraps!
To see what others are doing with their scraps, check out this week's links on soscrappy's blog!
Happy Scrapping,

  1. Such cute little blocks! Looks like nothing goes to waste at your house.

  2. So cute! I've started keeping tiny pieces to try some crumbs next year... I figure I might as well use it all.

  3. Love your crumb jar-- such a cute little block too.

  4. Cute blocks! I too have had issues with white fabric coming out blue & wavy in blogger, even though the original is fine. If anyone knows how to sort out that one I would love to know!

  5. What cute little blocks! Especially your crumb block.

  6. Great blocks and such a nice variety with your blue scraps.

  7. I love little blocks. And, wow...if that crumb block is only 3.5 inches then those scraps sure must have been tiny. I've seen those polaroid blocks and thought they would make a cute I Spy quilt.

  8. I love your little house block.
