I've got a few different projects in the works for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year, and they are all fun in different ways. There are some blocks that use lots of different fabrics in the monthly color (it's green this month.) I find those easier for choosing fabrics. Just mix up a good variety--light or dark, bright and intense or toned down and moody, modern prints or traditional. They will all work together just fine.
Pulling choices for blocks that use a limited number of fabrics can be more challenging, especially large blocks like the 16.5" Scrap Magnet blocks that I made this week. I considered many options, trying to get the mix just right. I ended up with one block in bright emerald and springy greens.
Here are the two green blocks together, followed by all of my blocks so far this year. I'm having a great time making these and have to stop myself from jumping ahead and moving on to more colors.
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.
