It's a great motivator for me and I have made good progress.
Each month I make one Pentagonal Star block using scraps in the designated color (and a grey background fabric)
Then I make scrappy improv blocks to empty that colors scrap basket.
I got a little behind last month though so the scrappy improv pink and brown blocks had not been done. But that's okay because I didn't have many purple scraps left after making my star so I just added them in with the pinks, so that gives me a chance to catch up on last months colors.
So yesterday I tackled the pink scrap basket, I made 7 scrappy twelve inch improv pieced blocks.
One of these improv blocks will go in a multicolored scrap quilt I am making that uses one block of each designated color throughout the year. The other six I will use to make a scrappy baby quilt with just a simple pink sashing and border.
It is great to be decluttering my sewing space this year!
