My plan for the RSC this year is to make 4 Scrappy Trip blocks each month using Bonnie Hunter's pattern and my 3" strips. I finished my set of red blocks early in the month, and still had a very large stack of 3" red strips. What to do with them?? I considered several different options, but ended up deciding to stick with the Scrappy Trips--they are easy to make, and I love playing with different layout options. The only bad thing is that I didn't have enough red strips, so I ended up cutting more from my stash. I will probably end up with almost as many strips at the end of the month as I started with!
So far I have made 12 red blocks, and I am planning to make 8 more. Setting them in five rows, four blocks across, would make a quilt that measures 60" x 75", a good size for a throw quilt. Here are a couple different layout possibilities.
There's also the chance that I will make 20 blue blocks when we get to that color for the RSC and combine them with these red blocks. Maybe red chains running one direction and blue the opposite way--wait and see!
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday, at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday and at I May Have a Scrap Problem at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful scrappy projects that everyone is sharing!
