February has been the perfect month to play with yellow scraps for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. The sunny warmth has brightened up many dreary days.
I have three regular projects in the works for the RSC this year, and I decided to put the yellow blocks from all three up on the wall together.
I made two Scrap Magnet blocks (upper left), one Sew Colorful Stars block (upper right) and 27 bowtie blocks. Putting them all up on the wall together gives a good look at the size differences--the blocks in the top row all finish at 16 or 16.5", and the bowtie blocks will finish at 5".
As soon as that last sentenced was written, I realized that there is another RSC project that I missed--my 30's kaleidoscope blocks. That means I have four RSC projects this year. Here are the kaleidoscope blocks, 26 of them altogether.
Since I had finished all of my regular RSC projects early this month, I pulled out some yellow crumbs and made four 6" blocks. These will join a stack of crumb blocks in other colors from previous years.
I also stitched together the last of the yellow blocks that I had cut back in January when I was getting ready to start my Blooming Onion quilt. That gave me a total of six of those blocks.
I've had a great time stitching up yellow scraps this month, but now I am ready to get started on a new color. Maybe Angela will let us know today what the color will be for March.
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.

Wow! You did an amazing job with your yellow scraps. Love all of these pretties. Enjoy the new colour! ;^)ReplyDelete
Looking at all that you've made this month makes me wonder if you have any yellow fabric left! I checked back to your Blooming Onions quilt, and that is incredible! That's very clever piecing and I like how you arranged the colours.ReplyDelete
Looks like you had fun with your yellow scraps this month! Beautiful blocks!ReplyDelete
Beautiful yellow blocks, Julie. I’m jealous that after all that loveliness, you had time to stitch crumb blocks! For me that will have to wait for next year!ReplyDelete
Lots of scrappy YELLOW fun, Julie. LOVE those Blooming Onion blocks!!ReplyDelete

You made really good use of those yellow scraps. You've got some really fun projects in the work this year. Did that make a dent in your yellow scrap stash?ReplyDelete

I'm loving all of your RSC sunniness! The Blooming Onion is fascinating! This is my first year doing RSC and I really need to catch up for March.ReplyDelete
What an amazing grouping of blocks and how cheerful it must be in your sewing room with all that sunshine!ReplyDelete
