There are plenty of quilting goals I would like to accomplish before the end of the year. One is to get the blocks for most of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects joined into tops. That way I can start new RSC quilts in January with a clear conscience.
I ended up working on eight (!) different projects for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge this year, which was definitely more than I had planned. A couple of them had been started in the fall of 2020. Three of the eight need more blocks and will carry over into 2022. The tops have been completed for two quilts, the Scrap Magnet quilt and the Sew Colorful Stars. That leaves three sets of blocks waiting to be stitched up into quilt tops.
I've been working on joining together the 5" pastel Bowtie blocks, and I shared my progress on those in last week's post. At this point, the 180 Bowties have all been turned into 20 big blocks, each made up of 9 Bowtie blocks. The last step is to get those big blocks stitched together. That seems quite manageable, once I get myself to sit down and do it!
The other set of blocks I would most like to put together are for the Homespun quilt. Once the Bowtie blocks are off the main design wall, I can decide on the layout for these blocks, then start stitching them together. Here is the plan for the center of my quilt.
I love the way these blocks turned out and am very eager to get this quilt top finished! In fact, that is going to be my One Monthly Goal for the link-up at Elm Street Quilts.
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. You can see what other quilters are hoping to get done this month at the One Monthly Goal link-up at Elm Street Quilts.
Happy quilting everyone!
