I love the new Rainbow Scrap Challenge button for 2019 - "Using your scraps, one color at a time!" I've been participating in the RSC since 2016, and have enjoyed every minute of these days, weeks, and months spent sewing with my rainbow of scraps. Just like everyone else, I've completed some wonderful quilts, ended up with more than one WiP still needing to be finished, and piled up multiple orphan blocks. I also have met many special quilt blogger friends and gotten tons of ideas and inspiration from all of the participants!
I wrote in my 2019 Planning Party post, that the first part of this year would be devoted to some finishing, and I'm on track with that. Squared Away, the 2018 RSC Sampler project is ready to be layered and basted, and I'm determined that will happen this week!
Meanwhile, though, a scrappy quilter has just got to play with scraps, so I've also been doing some of that this week! My ongoing leader-ender project left off with these 15 blocks made last year.
There are already two red blocks (the RSC color for January this year), a bright red and a dark red, but of course I was looking through the red scrap bin and thought...since I need at least 30 of these to make a good sized quilt...
What about a Christmas red block - adding in black, white, and a smidge of green?
This one will definitely be "happy!"
I also started sewing some rectangular string blocks last week, and continued that this week, ending up with a set of four in lighter reds with more white/cream backgrounds,
and a set of four with less of the light backgrounds.
And while I was at it, why not sew up one of the Tiny Tuesday blocks that Angela posted this week, since it was a string block, too?!
Can you tell I've been sewing with the same scraps all week?
They're still not used up - how does that happen? :)
Hope you've enjoyed some scrappy sewing this week! I'll be joining in with all of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilters at SoScrappy for ScrapHappy Saturday!
