So when I learned about the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at SoScrappy, I knew I needed to join in for 2016. I started experimenting with blocks for it a month ago or so, and came up with two ideas.
I've been wanting to try 16 patch blocks, so I've made a few of those:
And I am also planning to make at least one Scrap Jar Star in the color of the month as well. To experiment with this block, I made one in yellow, so a blue one, for January, is still in the works!
The great thing about working with these two different blocks is that the 16 patches piece quickly and easily with strips of fabric, but the stars use smaller pieces, so I can use up different sizes and shapes of scraps this way. I think I will enjoy making both and seeing what I end up with later this year. It's fun to have a plan, and a new group to link up with each month. Definitely a Scrappy New Year for me!
I'll see you over there , today Scrap Happy Saturday and tomorrow at Oh Scrap!, at Quilting is More Fun than Housework.
