Finishing Up the Yellow Blocks

The color for October at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge has been yellow, and I just managed to finish up my yellow blocks yesterday. Here are three more of the Folded Box blocks in yellow.

Folded Box blocks, tutorial by Donna Lynn Thomas

This wonderful pattern is from Donna Lynn Thomas, and you can find a tutorial for it on her blog HERE. I believe this pattern is also included in her Craftsy class Piece Like a Pro (and the class is on sale this weekend for only $19.99!)

The next time my design wall is cleared off, I will put my whole rainbow of these blocks up. I can't wait to see them all together and figure out a plan for joining them into a quilt or two.

Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects at the Rainbow Scrap Challenge every Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday.
