I had hoped to get my Scrappy Trips blocks joined together into a quilt top last week, but that did not happen because I was focused on another quilt that is currently filling my design wall. That doesn't mean no progress on Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects though--I did make one 16" Scraptastic Star block using brown scraps.

I figured out a tentative plan for these blocks as part of my RSC stitching for next year. I made two pink blocks last month using the same light fabric in both blocks for the stars and chains of squares, but then realized that I won't have enough of that fabric for two quilts. I will continue to use that fabric on my 12" blocks, but I'm switching things up for the 16" blocks. The plan is to pull out a white or cream based fabric that includes the color of the month in the print. I am crazy about the fabric I found for this brown block--sewing notions! (I used my flash on the following photo, which made it look much more yellow than it really is.)
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and at Oh Scrap! over at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
