It's a good thing that our color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this month is yellow. The sunny warmth of my yellow scraps is the perfect antidote to the grey skies outside.
I have been busy with other projects this week and didn't get to my RSC blocks until yesterday. Now I can share two new Scrap Magnet blocks. The Scrap Magnet pattern is by Kirsty of Bonjour Quilts. I made one bright yellow block and one using deeper golds.
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.
I'm still fine tuning my technique when there are directional fabrics in the mix. These blocks are large, 16.5" finished size. My plan is to make a total of 20 blocks for a quilt that should finish at 66" x 82.5". Here are the blocks for January and February.

Your YELLOW and gold Scrap Magnet blocks turned out nicely. They look great paired with those pink blocks from last month, Julie.ReplyDelete

These are gorgeous. I LOVE the background you are using. There is always something beautifully creative in your work. You've got that "eye" for putting things together. ;)ReplyDelete
Those blocks have a lot of stitching in them, but what a cool secondary pattern you are going to get. Looking forward to seeing more of those in the different colors.ReplyDelete
Great scrap blocks - love the way the pinks and yellows look together!ReplyDelete
