RSC 2017 - Moving Ahead

The stars have all been aligned this week, and while I don't yet have an actual finished quilt for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2016, my Scrap Jar Stars quilt is an "almost finished" flimsy, and it's looking pretty good!  :)


This just needs one last outside border to finish up the 9 patches, and it will be ready to quilt!

I also played with my Maple Leaf blocks a little bit this week.  I made a purple one, and then thought since I am in the nine patch mode, it might be fun to make a nine patch alternate block to go along with it.


These really are very pretty purple fabrics, but I have a hard time photographing purple, for some reason!  

After making these, I decided to make some more partners to go with my other Maple Leaf blocks.


This could be fun!  What have you been up to this week? For more rainbow inspiration, check out ScrapHappy Saturday at SoScrappy!

  2. Thanks for introducing me to SJQ. I've made 3 purple blocks already! My favorite part about your setting is the 9-patch formed by the sashing. I like the 9Ps with your maple leaves.

  13. Love those ScrapJar Stars! (And I'm almost certain I'll have a purple SJS made by the end of the month, because what's one more project at this point?)
    And that's a great call to be making the nine patches along with the maple leaves. I think you'll have all kinds of fun playing with those at the end of the year!

  17. I like those 9 patches and maple leaf combinations. Could be a very fun combo. Congrats on getting your Jar Stars to the finished flimsy stage, it's looking great. I have problems photographing purple as well, it always looks blue unless I'm in the sunlight.
