So, I especially love having the opportunity to sew with the September colors of dark red and gold for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
At the beginning of every month, I really enjoy going through my scraps and stash and pulling fabrics that might be useful for that month's blocks.
Here are a couple of monkey blocks for September - always fun to make!
Sometimes it's fun to do a little fussy cutting for those 1 inch centers!
Edited to add: Oops! It wasn't until I actually published this post and looked at it later on my iPad that I realized the ABC monkey was not behaving! So I got out the seam ripper, took it apart, and made it all better! Can you tell what had to be fixed?
I also got a start this week on some 16 patch blocks -
My plan to make 6 blocks every month will result in 60 completed blocks for this quilt, but I think I really need 63 to make a quilt that is 7 x 9 blocks. That means it's time to start looking at what colors I might need more of to make a nice balance for the finished quilt.
I've made some blocks that actually read as red or yellow in other months - so I got them out to see how they were looking together.
That will be something to keep thinking about this month.
This was my fabric find of the week - moose and pinecones! I've had this fat quarter for a long time, but never a place to use it. It seems perfect for this month's blocks!
Hope you are having a lovely September! I'm looking forward to seeing what the other RSC quilters have been up to this week at tomorrow's Scrap Happy Saturday link-up with Angela at SoScrappy!
