I have added more blocks to my appliqued circles project (True Colors from the book Simple Circles and Quick Curves by Nancy Mahoney.) My new leader-and-ender project for this year is going to be a rainbow of bowties. I have been cutting a ton of light neutral background squares, and I will make bowties in the assigned color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge each month. So far I have 13 blocks done and another dozen or so partially made. I hope to make around 30 blocks each month and end up with enough for a good-sized throw.
I have continued working on an old Rainbow Scrap project, my Scrap Hexies. The pieces have become too large for me to keep stitching them on the train to work in the mornings, but I am getting some stitching time while watching TV at night. Background hexies have been added to the yellow star, which leaves only 3 more stars needing background. Then I can start joining everything together and come up with a plan for how to finish the outside edges.
Check out all of the terrific scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I am also linking up with Help for Hexie-aholics at Sarah Did It! On Sunday I will also link up with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than housework.
