RSC April 2016 Blocks

April 24, 2016 in QUILTING

Angela of SoScrappy has chosen ORANGE for Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for April 2016. As I went thru my stash I discovered my (few) oranges where mostly brights. Finally found a few more rusty oranges that will work with my other fabrics.

I put a few blocks of each month’s color on the wall to show you what they look like together.

They could be mixed up….

or maybe have each row be only one color of blocks.

I know – hard to tell the difference. Guess I will have to wait until I get more blocks done before deciding. Use the RSC16 button on the right to see what other folks are doing. I am also linking up with ‘Quilting is more fun than Housework’.

Have a great day.

RSC March 2016 Blocks

March 20, 2016 in QUILTING

These blocks have been done for quite a while but I have been feeling too sick with my cold for the past couple of weeks to get the post together. But I am much better now and wanted to share my Rainbow Scrappy challenge blocks. Angela’s color choice for March was purple with yellow accents. Purple is one of my most favorite colors.

I used both red and blue purples to add a little more variety.

RSC February 2016 Blocks

February 21, 2016 in QUILTING

If you are following along with the Rainbow Scrap Challenge you probably already know that February’s color is brown with pink accents. I am not a fan of the combo so my blocks are all in various shades of brown.

RSC January 2016 Blocks

January 10, 2016 in QUILTING

This is my first time participating in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge but Angela at So Scrappy blog makes it sounds like a lot of fun. Check it out here. Look at all of the folks that are sharing their blocks on the linky party. Each month there is a different color to play with. Pull out your scraps and come play along.

Here are my January Rainbow Scrap challenge blocks. It is a simple block with a twist that was featured in the Spring 2015 Scrap Quilts magazine. I just couldn’t resist making it a bit smaller (more repeats).

2015 Leader Ender Quilt

YAHOO….I made my deadline. My 2015 Leader Ender quilt top was finished on December 31st, 2015. Just in the nick of time.

Bricks in the Barnyard

Bricks in the Barnyard

My inspiration was Bonnie Hunter’s ‘Bricks in the Barnyard’ quilt from her ‘Scraps & Shirttails II’ book. Of course, I decided to change up both the layout of the block and the quilt. The result was a quilt that is similar but different from Bonnie’s.

 

You may have noticed that I have a RSC16 button on the right side of the main page. I have decided to join the Rainbow Scrap Challenge for 2016. Some of the fabrics have been chosen and I hope to find some time in the next week to sew up a few blue/purple blocks for January. Take a peek and see what all of the fun is about here. There will be ‘Linky Parties’ so that you can see what everyone else is doing.

Check out my ‘Linky Parties page to find some fabulous blogs where I share my projects and get inspiration.
