Scrappy Patchwork for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge

This week I've made a few more 16 patch and four patch blocks to add to my collection in the February colors of brown and pink.  Surprisingly, I found more of those colors in my scraps and stash than I expected to!

First my 16 patch blocks - I have 12 total now, and that meets my goal to make six in each color combination for each month.


Every time I put them up on my design wall (or lay them out on the floor upstairs by the window to get better light!) I see a different design possibility.  I'm sure that will happen every month as I add new colors!  

Of course, I had to make one completely pink 16 patch!


And this one is another favorite, with its tiny pink flowers and low volume stars for the background fabric.


I also added to my stash of four patches, and began combining them to make bigger blocks by adding 4 1/2 inch squares to each 4 1/2 inch four patch.  These larger blocks measure 8 1/2 inches.


There are still lots more four patches to work with in the pinks and browns...


And in the blues and purples, too! 


I'll just keep working on these and see what happens!

I'll be linking up with So Scrappy for Scrap Happy Saturday, and looking forward to seeing what everyone else has been working on this week!

  9. All this patchwork is looking so pretty - especially love the all pink one! I am always drawn to "patches" - 4, 9, 16 - the possibilities are really endless. Looking forward to your final design choice!

  10. I think as the colors and months go by, you're going to have more and more fun playing with those 16patches! (And I'll have vicarious fun watching you do it!)
    Your double 4patches are going to be interesting, too. I've been making 4patches as leader/enders with no plan in mind, so I love seeing what other people do with them. 8)
