Today is the first Saturday of 2020--that means it's time for a new year of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. This will be my 8th year of participating in the RSC, ever since 2013. Many thanks to our hostess Angela for all her hard work through those many years! I've never hosted a weekly link-up, but I know that it can be tough to have blog posts prepared every single week. Somehow Angela keeps everything running smoothly, and we all get to enjoy the sharing and inspiration from this amazing challenge. We are starting the year using our light and bright green scraps.
Occasionally I know exactly what I want to make for my new RSC projects, but most years it takes me a little while to figure it out. It's not that I don't have plenty of ideas--I think the problem is too many ideas. It's so hard to narrow down the choices. I'm still considering some options for 2020.
I made some blocks today to try out one possibility. This is called the Square Dance block, and it is the block being used for the Scrap Buster Challenge at Border Creek Station. Their pattern is for 6" blocks, but I made mine to finish at 4". The photos show four blocks. In the first photo, the lighter side is toward the center; in the second, the darker corners are at center.
I'm not sure these blocks are really doing it for me. They were very easy to piece, but I don't know that I will continue making more. Back to the drawing board for me!
I am linking up with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge on Saturday and with Oh Scrap! at Quilting is more fun than Housework on Sunday. Be sure to check out all of the wonderful projects that everyone is sharing!
