As part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014, Angela has suggested we submit a post showing our mid-year status. I am very excited to see everyone's progress up to this point.
I started making my hexie stars and snowflakes for the RSC last August as a way to fill some time while riding the train to work each day. That is why I already have some colors finished that haven't been chosen yet this year like black, brown, and red, our assigned color for July. Since red is already done, I am going to spend July catching up on a few colors that need a second snowflake, plus I might begin working on the background (if I can make a decision on how to put them all together.) The first photo shows most of the colors together on the wall, and the second photo has the yellow additions from June.
My other rainbow project for 2014 is Rainbow LeMoyne Stars. I made four blocks on the black background way back in 2001. They finish at 6". I love the way they look together and have no idea why they got set aside for so long.
For the RSC, I am making 8 blocks each month, half on light background and half on dark. I have also been making one 12" block most months. I have several ideas on how these will get joined together eventually. These photos show just a few of my finished blocks.
