July seems to be speeding by very quickly, and I am trying to stay on track with my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. It's a good thing that one project, the Scrap Magnet blocks, already got done a few months ago when we had light blue as our color.
There was one evening this week when I had a small chunk of time for quilting, but wanted to sit and sew rather than stand and cut, which is what most of my RSC projects needed. I discovered that I had some Glorified 9-Patch blocks that had been started back in April when our color of the month was light blue. I finished those blocks, then made three more in dark blues the next day.
I made some more of the Homespun blocks this week, using our alternate colors of the month, black and brown.
As you can see, the center seam on each block has not been stitched. I'm tentatively planning to use these blocks at the ends of the rows to get a staggered block setting. (FYI, the staggered setting was not my idea. It is one of the versions of the Homespun design included in the pattern.) I pulled out a few other blocks to see how they looked together. Eventually there will be a total of 18 whole blocks and 4 half blocks.
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.
