With October starting, I've been wanting to work toward finishing a quilt, and this week I've stayed focused on that goal.
These blocks were made mostly in 2020 as a Rainbow Scrap Challenge project, and sat in a project box for most of this year.
The blue is a Grunge I purchased for another project and didn't use,
and I made these blocks until I ran out of it!
It didn't take long to get them sewn into a small quilt top - 43 x 49.
Hunting through my stash for a backing unearthed this adorable fabric that I had purchased from Bernie during her shop closing sale. It's called "Little Red" by Meags & Me for Clothworks Fabrics. You can see the whole line of it here at Fat Quarter Shop.
It needed to be bigger to work for a backing, so I added some green and gray Grunge that I had.
Quilting is happening (my favorite, simple diagonal grid through the blocks), and hopefully won't take too long. I need a "Nothing but Sewing" day, but haven't had the chance for something like that in awhile!
Some little penguins waving hello!
Meanwhile, I've been mulling over my other RSC projects for the year, and thinking about what they need in terms of colors and blocks. The Scrappy Trips hand-pieced quilt definitely needs two more blocks so I can have 20 altogether.
There are two blocks of every color except for blue (3) and I made one "dark neutral" block (brown) when we had that month.
An additional green block would fit in, but I'm not sure I have enough greens left to make one yet. A light neutral block would definitely work, though, so I did a fabric pull for that and just need to spend some time cutting the squares.
Hoping to get some time to work on that today!
