I'm Late.. I'm Late... But unlike White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland, I don't think I am too late!
Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch on.. LOL. (no comments please!) But this week I decided to join the Rainbow Scrap Challenge 2014 at Angela's So Scrappy blog. I like the idea of working on a project for an entire year. Like the Sweet Hearts I did in 2013. This challenge is a bit different in that you make a block, or whatever you choose, in the color of that month. Colors are chosen by Angela at the beginning of each month! Now the only problem with this challenge... is that I don't have a lot of scraps. Shhhh... I know that is against the Quilters Code of Conduct! LOL. So I have decided to change it a bit and make mine the Rainbow Stash Challenge 2014. All the fabrics for this quilt will come only from my stash.. no purchasing fabric (at least for this project!).
So I started earlier this week. I chose an offset Log Cabin block and will make the same block in different colors through the year. January's color was dark blue.
February's color was pink. I am trying to use my more modern/contemporary fabrics for these blocks. I think they lend themselves very well to update this pattern.
Finally, I finished these blocks yesterday with March's color: Teal. I love the fresh look of these blocks!
April's color is Purple. Which happens to be one of my favorite colors! Oh this is going to be fun!!
Each week we can link up at the RSC2014 linky party to show our blocks. I look forward to joining the party!
Welcome to the party! (I use mostly scraps but have no problem using the stash if I come up short!)ReplyDelete
Thanks! I'm happy to be joining the challenge! I look foward to everyone's work each month!Delete
Welcome aboard! Looks like you are all caught up already! Great workReplyDelete
Thanks! Yes, I really wanted to get caught up - now I can relax at the party! Thanks for hosting!Delete
Your blocks are wonderful. This scrappy challenge is fun. I just joined it this year, too. I'm making mine from a combination of stash and scraps, but mostly stash, like you are doing.ReplyDelete
I am looking forward to the challenge each month. I really like this pattern - it is simple and easy to do, but visually interesting.Delete
I tend to use scraps and supplement with stash. I did 'cheat?' last month and added some teal to the stash. Hey - we do have to add some in sometimes right?ReplyDelete
Glad you joined the fun. Your blocks are looking great.
Thanks, Deb. Glad I have joined - I love the colors so far. It looks like it is a great group and will be fun.Delete
Gorgeous blocks! I might just steal your idea. I am visiting from Slow Sunday Stitching.ReplyDelete
Thanks! The blocks are really easy to do, but look great. I am using 2 1/2" strips and 1 1/2" strips. Thanks for visiting and I hope you join too!Delete
I don't have scraps either. I just love the fabrics you are using for your blocks.ReplyDelete
Glad I am not the only one! Seems so contrary, but I gave up my scrap bin years ago. Now only keep a few baskets with some scraps. Certainly not enough to do a whole quilt!Delete
I love the way you arranged the colours in these blocks. The white on the outside is going to make this quilt stunning.ReplyDelete
Thanks! I debated using white with small black patterns on it.. or something else, but really like the plain white on white. You can't see it in the photos but I have used two different white on white fabrics.Delete
Oh I love, love these blocks :)ReplyDelete
Thank you so much! Thanks for stopping by too. I think they will be great in the rainbow colors.Delete
Beautiful blocks and you are going to have fun making them all year!! Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
