A new year is here for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, and the color of the month for January is light/medium blue. Angela, our lovely hostess of the RSC and Mari of The Academic Quilter have collaborated on a sampler quilt for us to play with, and I definitely want to participate! I’m looking forward to seeing the first block, but while waiting this week, I pulled out my blue scrap bin to see what I have.
Awhile back I had cut some of the smallest dark blue scraps into 1.5 x 2.5 pieces for these blocks –
and they are now sitting by my sewing machine, waiting to be sewed into rows as I need them for leaders and enders. I also started cutting up the smallest light and medium blue scraps for the light blue set of these little blocks.
Then I found some bigger chunks that are perfect for making some more bowtie blocks.
I know I need to at least double the number of bowtie blocks that I’ve already made in order to have a good sized quilt out of them, so now there are eight blue blocks!
I like the variety in this group of bowties – solid, print, stripes, text, light, and dark! They will add a lot to my Scrappy Bowtie Quilt!
