I got off to a quicker start than usual on my blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month, mostly because I started cutting up my orange scraps in August. I knew we would be using orange in one of the remaining months, and I had some time available to get a head start on it.
There are already 31 Bowtie blocks stitched up, and plenty of orange squares cut for the rest. I was slowed down a bit by running out of pre-cut background squares, so I have been working on cutting up more light squares. Check out the gradation of colors!
I got totally carried away while cutting orange circles for my applique blocks. So far I have three blocks stitched and three more prepped, plus about 15-20 more circles cut out. I will have plenty of hand stitching to do on the train this month.
Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. I am also joining the link-up for Scraptastic Tuesday.
