This months color on the RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) at SoScrappy is BROWN. I have quite a bit of brown and it was fun to open the Selvedge container and rummage thru it and get a few blocks madethis past week.
The first block I made was Rainbow Twist. I am only making one this month. It will take 20 (16") blocks to make a nice size quilt so I will decide how many I want to make as the months come up. So far I have a total of 4.
And today I made 12 Scrappy 8" blocks. I actually cut one of them 1/4" too short, but I think I will still be able to use it. I haven't decided how I will use them in a quilt. I'm toying with the idea of cutting them in half diagonally. That will be a decision made much later!
Here are the first six.
And the next six.
Needless to say, it didn't make a dent in my selvedges, but every little bit used just makes me feel good!! I LOVE using my stash.
i want to show you one more thing while I have you here!! I had planned on getting this quilt put together. I finally got all the blocks done, although one is missing in the pic. These blocks were sold as a block of the month from The Quilted Owl in New Orleans. They let me buy all of the patterns at once when I told them I was moving away in 2014. I started on them last year as my "TV watching" project!! I can't wait to get this quilt put together and have a permanent home on the back of my couch! I love it here in Texas, but I do miss New Orleans!
Those purple bars you see are doggie grooming bars that I use to hold up my quilt when quilting on my HQ Sixteen. They really work. And the round orange thing you see hanging on the left is my earbuds case I made! My design wall isn't in the best spot, but it is in the ONLY empty wall I have in my studio!!
I can't wait to see what everyone has made with their BROWNS this week. So hop on over to SoScrappy with me and let's enjoy the show!
..........Sew till next time..........
