I feel like I'm on a roll with Rainbow Scrap Challenge projects. Who knows how long the progress will last, but I'm enjoying it while it happens!
I was able to make two Sugar Bowl blocks using some scrappy chunks of red.
I needed some leader-ender blocks, so I added some 4-patches cut from scraps in the 2 inch bin.
While I was digging through the drawers and boxes looking for red scraps, I found a stack of red batik fabrics I bought several years ago to make a red and white schoolhouse quilt. I made a schoolhouse quilt years ago - in my early days as a quilter - and I wanted to make another.
I wanted to make the same style block as my earlier quilt, and I found a great pattern on the APQ website. It's a free pattern by Carrie Nelson: Home for the Harvest. It's a great scrappy pattern, but I knew I was only going to use red and white fabrics for my quilt.
The practice block went together so easily, I went ahead and made a second block. And cut out parts for four more blocks. If they keep going together so easily, I should have six blocks finished by the end of the month. That meets my plan for a wall hanging-size quilt.
There's more scrappy red inspiration at the weekly Rainbow Scrap Challenge link-up. I hope you are making great progress with your red scraps, too!
