2020 Rainbow Scrap Challenge

I'm a week late but I am joining the RSC again this year!
I was busy playing with green scraps last week but didn't link up. I was a wee bit busy (and tired) last Saturday as I was with 7 of the 9 girls in my girl scout troop for a 24 hour sleep in at the church hall where we meet. Friday 3PM to Saturday 3PM.

I did manage to finish off another 6 green and cream blocks to go with the 6 I had already made. This is a small top at 36x48. I hope to machine quilt this one this weekend.


While I had the bright scraps out.... I made a 16 patch block as those will be one of my weekly blocks to do this year.

The 16 patches are so versatile.... I am not sure if it will become a star quilt like these...



or maybe another version of a cube quilt this year?

We will see how things are looking in November! Until then I'll just make some 16 patches with 2.5 inch blocks.

Another week will be these nine patches with a grey middle. I'm using 2 inch scraps for this one. I was thinking of making 14 each month for a strip of color. Each block finishes at 4.5 inches so 10 months and 14 blocks each month would give me a 45x63 inch throw quilt.


I only have a few more scraps of the brights which are being sewn into a crumb block on the machine right now. You'll notice I had to be a little creative there on a few of these but it is using up those scraps!

Linking up with the RSC Challenge.

What a great start on your Light/Bright GREEN scraps, Deb! That sweet monkey hiding in your 16-patch block made me smile. Whatever you decide to do with those blocks, the resulting quilt is sure to be SEW darling!

That monkey is adorable in the green block!
Great use of the scraps!

Love that green and cream Log Cabin project! And I agree, 16-patch blocks are so versatile - a great starting point for lots of projects!

You have lots of pretty green scraps, Great idea to make the 16 patches which can become the center of something later in the year!

Cathy said...

Oh, yeah...those 16 patches are a great starter for lots of other blocks or even as an alternate block. Love the little monkey- the smile factor.

I like those blocks with the gray center too.

Marly said...

Great projects, and a good idea: make now and decide later how to use the blocks. I like those small 9-patcheswhich will go together fast now and surprise us all later!

Lots of bright green sewing going on at your home! No machining for me just yet, we are away on a caravan trailer adventure so I'm doing a little hand stitching.

You accomplish so much with your scraps! I'll be popping over and browsing through your past scrap projects as well as I try to bring my overflowing scrap bin under control this year. I'm particularly overwhelmed by the small pieces. Any tips on sewing crumb blocks?
