We are almost at the end of January, and there have been so many pink scraps getting used for Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilts! This week I finished off my pink blocks for three different RSC projects. I am eager to find out what our new color will be for February.
My first pink set of blocks are for my Bowties 365 project. The pink pieces for all of these blocks had been cut several years ago when I was making Bowtie baby quilts. The blocks will finish at 5". My goal is to make one block every day of this year, and I am already ahead by a few.
My Glorified 9-Patch blocks were started in October as my new hand stitching project. Unfortunately, I haven't really been enjoying hand piecing these 6" blocks, so I have switched over to piecing them by machine. I finished four pink blocks this month.
My blocks will alternate light and dark backgrounds. I'm looking forward to getting some more colors into this mix.
Sew Colorful Stars is one of those patterns that I knew would be a great choice for the RSC when I discovered it at the Fat Quarter Shop last fall. Each 16" block contains 48 half-square triangles, the perfect place to go scrappy!
I have two more Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects that I shared earlier in the month. They are the Scrap Magnet blocks and the 30's Kaleidoscopes. It's going to be a busy year for my rainbow of scraps!
