New Month, New Color!!

Drumroll, please....................................................

The new color for April's RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) is ORANGE!! I love orange, so this should be fun!

But first I have my last purple blocks to show you. And yes, I have added another block to my list! BUT I have already finished all of my Rainbow Twist blocks! I will lay all the blocks out next week and start putting it together. I need to have this one quilted and binded by the summer!

Here are the last 4 blocks I made. I wasn't sure about the blacks, but I think they ended up being my favorite!

Now the new blocks I have added to my list is Jacob's Ladder. Someone (sorry, I can't remember who) is also making these blocks with this same color way. I fell in love with the scrappiness of it all. I already had a ton of 4 patches made, from doing leaders and enders. I will be using a "constant" white with grey dots and the RSC color of the month to make the half square triangles. I will be making 5 of these blocks every month. I will need to backtrack and make Jan. blues and Feb. browns to catch up.

Here are my purple blocks. It has been a fun month filled with lots of purple blocks, but I am looking forward to digging into the orange bins!

I am linking to SoScrappy. Can't wait to see what others have made this past week!

...............Sew till next time.................

The pattern with the black blocks is perfect for little strips. Since I have so many little strips I should make one too. LeeAnna

The Jacob's ladder blocks in the colour of the month will be quite superb. Love the sparkly gems in the purple ones.

You always have a gorgeous collection of blocks in the works. Looking forward to seeing your collection of oranges.

I love the Jacob's Ladder blocks that I have seen on someone else's blog, and have been tempted to try them, too! Yours look great, and are such a oerfect use of the scrappy four patches. I like the background color you chose, too!

The purples in the JL are such rich choices that they really make the blocks stand out. Great job.

Your twist blocks look great and I love the purples in your Jacobs Ladder blocks. You are going to end up with some gorgeous scrappy quilts when you get both projects done.

I see some selvages peeking through in your Rainbow Twist blocks! And the Jacob's Ladder blocks look great - good and scrappy!

I have always loved Jacob's Ladder and the diamonds that appear when you set them together. These look great - love that you included some selvedges.

A scrappy quilt made from scrappy Jacob's Ladder blocks (from a block swap) was one of my first quilts. I gave it to my mother for her birthday ... and always planned to make one for myself someday. Your blocks are fantastic--I can tell already that it's going to be a great quilt.

Your quilt is so colorful. I like the combination of colors. You are creative.
